Monastery Beach (Plazhi i Manastirit) is one of the most beautiful beaches located south of the town of Saranda, and before Ksamil. The beach is secluded from both sides by the hills around it, so it’s a great place to escape the busy town of Saranda or Ksamil. However, this beach can also get very crowded during the summer months.
On the hill of Dema just next to the beach there is the 14th century Monastery of Saint George, which is also worth a visit. From the hill you have amazing views at the Ionian Sea as well as Lake Butrint.
How To Get To Monastry Beach
To get to Monastery Beach, you can take the bus to Butrint and ask the driver to stop at “Manastiri i Shën Gjergjit” and from there it’s a short stroll down to the beach. Off course you can also take you own transportation, rent a car or motorbike, or take a taxi from Ksamil or Saranda.
