The 80-mile stretch of sparkling coastline between Saranda and the city of Vlore has become known as the “Albanian Riviera.” It’s marketed as a budget alternative to the exclusive (and pricey) Italian Riviera and Croatia’s brilliant Dalmatian Coast. By 4pm it’s time to catch the ferry back to Corfu. All in all, a splendid day exploring the Albanian Riviera and well worth the side trip from Corfu.
