Explore the sandy beaches, splashing bays, and scenic caves of Southern Albania on a multi-stop speedboat trip from Vlore. Cruise through the Bay of Vlora, Dafina, and Bristan, and explore the Haxhi Ali Cave. Spend free time on the beach and enjoy included sandwiches and soft drinks. After meeting your guide, hop on board and head to the Haxhi Ali Cave. The cave gets its name from the pirate Haxhi Ali, who used it as a refuge in the 16th century. After a 20-minute break in the cave, return through the Bay of Vlore.  Admire some of the most popular places on the riviera, like Zhiron and Kalasa Beach, on the way to Dafina Bay, a small horseshoe-shaped bay with white sandy beaches about 50 meters wide. The bay is one of the wonders of the Karaburun Marine Area. To get to Dafina Bay’s beaches, it takes hours of walking on foot, so being able to visit by boat is a real privilege. Dafina Bay is also known for the small cave it houses. Enter directly by boat and see a picture-perfect small beach with white stones and a palm tree.  Stop for 4 hours at Dafina Beach before leaving for another beautiful bay, Bristan Bay, a rocky beach with a shore dominated by steep cliffs that fall towards the sea and rocky pebble beaches where vegetation often grows right up to the sand. Set anchor at another one of the best beaches in Albania on the Karaburun-Sazan Peninsula, where ships used to take shelter in the past when the sea was too rough. Here, peace and tranquility are the real protagonists.  In addition to the beach, you can step onto the mainland and see an abandoned military building, a small pier, and some protected bunkers behind steep cliffs. Among the rocks, you’ll find deep canyons that were once used as fallout shelters 30 years ago.
