Port of Sarande

Located just across the sea from Corfu, one might mistakenly believe they are in Greece upon approaching Sarande -- a charming coastal town in Albania. The town has a distinctly Mediterranean feel that mirrors its nearby neighbors. There are an abundance of picturesque beaches to choose from, as well as a string of quaint villages that are home to historic sights and landmarks, restaurants, shops and more.
