The pinnacle of the Albanian Riviera, Ksamil is a seasonal destination it's best to visit in the summer, from June to September, when you can take full advantage of the beaches. Located on the tip of Albania very close to Greece, Ksamil also offers a convenient starting point for a trip to Corfu, which can be reached by ferry in less than an hour. Alternatively, you could fly into Corfu and start your exploration of Albania with Ksamil. The town itself is pretty simple, but the gorgeous beaches and the surrounding countryside are the real attractions and some of the best Albania has to offer. Besides the swimming on the coast you’ll find a beautiful peninsula with various bars. You can even take a boat to one of several nearby islands. Another great day trip we recommend from Ksamil is the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Butrint, an ancient Greek city.
Ksamil is the perfect destination if you’re looking to get some sun and have a low-key time out from traveling. The city and the surrounding area are ideal for slowing the pace of your holiday and giving yourself a day or two to relax without worrying about anything but soaking up the sun and scenery, taking a dip in the sea, and enjoying delicious local food and drink. It’s fascinating to see this side of Albania, which has a different atmosphere from the larger cities or even the other destinations in the countryside. It’s a great way to have a holiday within a holiday, before you get back to exploring the rest of this fascinating region.

Things to do in Ksamil
Let's face it the main reason for visiting Ksamil is probably the beach and the various watersports on offer, but you'd be missing out if you didn't take a half day trip to the nearby UNESCO World Heritage listed archeological site of Butrint.
