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 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.
"It was an excellent trip overall and having the accommodations booked, transfers arranged and the use of the phones and a person to contact at any time, was great. It took away the worry of travelling in a strange country where English was not the first language."

"Jayway provided our family, on its first trip to Croatia, with all the necessary information and recommendations to make the experience one of the favorite stand-outs in our traveling jaunts. All in all, we had a wonderful vacation, and will recommend Jayway to any and all friends who plan to see Croatia."

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.”
