Ksamil is a beach town in the south of Albania, just 12 kilometers south of Saranda with it’s main attraction the amazingly beautiful beaches. Ksamil Beach consists of many small and different beaches, scattered around the town. There are some rocky beaches, but most of them are sandy, which is not very common on the western Balkan coast. Most beaches are more or less secluded and together with the white sand and amazingly clear blue water and a view at the Ksamil Islands in the background, Ksamil Beach is considered a true paradise.
The beaches of Ksamil are beautiful all year round, but due to its beauty they have become very popular so in summer it gets very crowded.
