Virgin rugged beaches punctuate the entire Karaburun landscape. What makes it even more impressive is the area known as the Balcony of Karaburun, which stretches over its ridges. Jagged cliffs descend on the caves and slopes of rock formations over Dafina Beach. The views from this point are particularly amazing!
Caves are a typical feature of this peninsula, one of the most famous being that of Haxhi Alia. Sazan island is beautifully situated where the Adriatic and Ionian seas meet. The largest island in Albania, with an area of 5.8 square kilometers, Sazan looks like a detached portion of the Karaburun peninsula and is also the gateway to the Gulf of Vlora. The entire marine territory is part of the Karaburun-Sazan Marine Park. While the island is uninhabited, you are sure to always find people here as, since it opened to the public in 2015, Sazan has quickly become one of the most attractive touristic destinations in the entire country.
Closed to outsiders for much of the 20th century, Albania has long been Mediterranean Europe's enigma. Until fairly recently its rumpled mountains, fortress towns and sparkling beaches were merely a rumour on most travel maps. Explore Albania's stunning riviera scenery and dreamy beaches in one day yachting and snorkeling in the National Marine Park of Karaburun - Sazan.
