Saranda, the beautiful seaside city in the south of Albania is fast becoming one of the hottest places to go in the Mediterranean. Only a 20-minute ferry ride away from Greece, it’s the perfect place to relax but without the price tag like other European destinations.
You have it all, beautiful beaches, fresh healthy food, friendly people, the list goes on. This is why it’s one of my favourite places in the world as well as why I decided to move here permanently!
Saranda is the gateway to the Albania Riviera. The ‘gem of the Riviera’ called Ksamil, is only a 20-minute drive from the city. There you can find beaches that mimic Greece and the Caribbean.
There’s also a UNESCO site (Butrint) nearby and lots of other great things to do. From Saranda, you can go north and check out all the other beautiful places to visit. An hour away from Saranda is the city of Gijrokastёr which is a UNESCO recognized town set in the hills.
Saranda is a great base to explore all of these beautiful places which you will be able to do if you win this raffle!
As some of you may know I am part of an exciting NGO here in Saranda, Albania called Shatervan Idesh, where we aim to help with a number of problems that Albania needs our help with. One of them is the stray cats and dogs which we are creating a long-term program to help vaccinate and spay/neuter them as well as feed them over the winter. Saranda is a summer tourist destination, so it’s a long cold winter for the animals here, which most of them rely on the tourists to be fed.
To fundraise for our mission we are running a raffle where we will give away 7* nights FREE accommodation at the Grand Hotel which sits right on the seafront in the centre of Saranda. If you would like to read more about what we do then please check out our website or social media (Facebook & Instagram).
