Himara

Continuing your tour towards the south, you will come across the small city of Himara, which has two neighborhoods: Old Himara, built on the hill, and New Himara, in the gulf of Spille. Himara has five beaches: Filikuri, Spille, Llamani, Potami, and Livadhet. They are all gravel beaches with deep, clear waters. Himara is the ancient residence and city of the Illyrian Kaon clan. It was settled in the 5th century B.C. and its name is of Pelasgian (pre-Illyrian) origin. There are several religious sites to visit such as the Church of Shën Maria e Athalit, and the Church of All Saints

Porto Palermo Castle 

Another site to visit is the Castle of Ali Pashë Tepelena, built on a small peninsula in the tectonic gulf of Porto Palermo. Himara is particularly noted for its traditional iso-polyphonic songs (part of UNESCO oral art patrimony).

Vuno

8 km south of Dhërmi is the village of Vuno, here you can visit old churches like the Church of Shën Spiridhoni, built in 1778. Vuno is a tiny hillside village above picturesque Jal beach. Each summer Vuno's primary school is filled with blow-up beds and it becomes Shkolla Hostel. What it lacks in infrastructure and privacy, it makes up for with its goat-bell soundtrack and evening campfire.

Dhermi

Dhërmi is famous for its crystal-clear waters and small, intimate pebble beaches, such as Jaliksari, Shkambo, and Gjipea. Situated at the foot of a 70 m cliff, Gjipea is a rare wonder. Close to Dhërmi is the legendary Cavern of the Pirates. 

Palasa

After passing Qafa e Llogarasë on a road that dates back to the time of Pompey, you descend into the Albanian Riviera. This warm Mediterranean zone has nearly 300 sunny days a year. The first beach to visit is Dhraleo (Palasë), known for its clear waters. Pompey and his army stopped at this beach in ancient times, when it was known as Palestra.

Llogara

The Llogara National Park lies approximately 40 km south of the city of Vlora. It is situated on the slopes of Llogara Mountain and covers a surface area of 810 hectares, with elevations ranging from 470 to 2,018 m above sea level. The park combines the beauties of the mountains with a seaside climate.
