Ksamil Sights

The pinnacle of the Albanian Riviera, Ksamil is a seasonal destination. It's best to visit in the summer. That's 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. You can reach the island by ferry in less than an hour. Or, 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. They're 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. It's a stunning ancient Greek city.

Ksamil Tourism

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. You should give yourself a day or two to relax without worrying about anything but soaking up the sun and scenery. Take a dip in the sea, and enjoy delicious local food and drink. It’s fascinating to see this side of Albania. Ksamil has a different atmosphere from the larger cities or even the other destinations in the countryside. Visiting Ksamil is a great way to have a holiday within a holiday. Stop here before you get back to exploring the rest of this fascinating region.

"Great all-around service, from initial planning through the last day of our trip. Cheerful delivery of prompt and comprehensive answers to all questions posed. Our drivers were careful at all times.  We felt extremely safe. Our guides, especially to and in Albania, were exceptional."

Where to stay in Ksamil

Ksamil isn't a resort frequented by the rich and famous so you won't find five star hotels here but the friendliness of the locals and the laid back atmosphere of the town is what makes Ksamil special. Once we start preparing your customized itinerary we will present our recommended options for you to select from.

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.

What I love about Ksamil...

“Ksamil was the first stop on the #JayWayBalkans blogger trip in 2016. For many of the group it was their first experience of Albania. The warm welcomes, chilled beaches, AMAZING seafood, delicious wine and the impressive nearby archeological site of Butrint immediately turned them into raving fans, me included.”
