The Monastery of Saint Mary (Manastiri i Shën Mërisë) is located about 12km north of Saranda on a hill, next to the bay of Kakome. The dome shaped St. Mary’s church was built in the 16th-17th century and was later expanded and fortified in the 18th century. The monastery is now abandoned but you can still visit the site.
How To Get To The Monastery In Kakome
Kakome Bay is best reached by car, but you’ll need to make a short hike for the final lap. You can also get to Kakome Beach by boat, but you’ll need to hike a bit further from there. It’s well worth as you’ll have an amazing view over Kakome Bay and if you like hiking, you can also hike further up for even better views on all sides. You can also see Krorëza Beach, which can only be reached by boat.
