Explore the beautiful Karaburun peninsula by speedboat, including the Karaburun-Sazan National Marine Park, the only reserve of its kind in the country, home to turtles, seals and dolphins. Visit the mysterious cave at Haxhi Aliu, used by traders and smugglers for millennia and now a national monument. Snorkel in a remote bay, sunbathe on an untouched beach and then eat a picnic lunch on the sand.

Overview

Where the Adriatic Sea meets the Ionian Sea, Karaburun is the only national marine park in the country. While the peninsula itself is a managed nature reserve, all eyes are on the preservation of the incredible marine flora and fauna, giant caves, and meadows of seagrass that can be found unda da sea. We will do the first stop to the biggest and at the same time the most famous is Haxhi Alia cave, one of the biggest in Albania. The cave is 60 meters high and 40 meters deep. A small lake, where we will swim is found inside the case while traces of fire can be noticed on the walls. After that we will go straight to Dafina bay to enjoy snorkeling and the incredible marine flora and fauna. Than we will continue with the exploration of Brisani Bay. Aside from the peninsula, we will also head out to Sazan, Albania’s largest island and an old Cold War submarine base, which was only opened to the public in 2015. After exploring different bays and caves it’s time to enjoy a delicious local lunch. Departure to Vlora and end of the trip.
