The largest in the Mediterranean Sea with a surface of 222 square km, the lagoon of Karavasta offers a great diversity of birds and plant species. The great importance this park has comes mainly from the endangered and extremely rare species of Dalmatian Pelican, which 5% of the world population lays in this area. This protected and untouched lagoon offers to all his visitors the perfect escape from the noise of the city and to all birdwatchers the perfect chance to have a close look at one of the rarest bird species still existing.

Overview

Meeting point- If u are staying in Berat you can come to the Castle Park Hotel or we can pick u up down the city at a desirable place, if not the meeting point is going to be at Divjake Karavasta Tourists Office @ 10 a.m.

In our 4x4 cars we are going to travel to the western part of the lagoon for about 30 minutes.

After we prepare the equipment we are going to kayak and swim in the lagoon for 2-2,5 hours.

You will have the chance to look at the increasingly dominant pine trees and sandy dunes that surround the area. Bird watching- while kayaking the Dalmatian pelican is going to be right in front of us, although we cannot pass the designated area because their sensibility is quite high and they get scared easily they will still be very near us.

After the kayaking we are going to jump in the cars and go to the local restaurant where the fish based lunch will take place. A walk of 1 hour to the observation point of the lagoon will take place. From there we will reach the watch tower and enjoy a 360 degree view of all the lagoon and areas around.
