Durrësi beach, situated only 39 km away from Tirana, is the biggest and the most populated beach of the country. It has a length of 6 km with a considerably wide strip of sand. The sea depth increases very gradually, which makes this beach very attractive to families with children, and the location of Durrësi Bay keeps it very protected from the winds. Situated here is the largest number of tourist facilities including hotels, motels, villa compounds, bars, restaurants, discos, etc. During the last few years this beach has become the destination not only for tourists from Tirana but also from Kosova and Macedonia. In the northern part of Durrësi is Currila beach, where the water is deeper and the beach is protected from the warm wind coming from the land.
The nearby beaches of Golem and Mali i Robit comprise nearly the same unit amount of land as Durrësi beach and have similar characteristics. Here you can find a pine forest decorating the seaside. Like in Durrësi beach, the concentration of tourist facilities here is very high (hotels, restaurants, bars, pubs, etc.). Regarding the beaches in Kavaja district, it is worth mentioning the Karpen and Spilleja beaches, which are known for the high quality sand (rich in iodine), sea waters, and dense vegetation of pine trees.The Cape of Lagji closes the Durrësi bay in the south. It is a suitable natural object for diving. Nearby are the small beaches of rare beauty: Bardhori and Gjenerali. Bardhori is a rocky beach, while Gjenerali is surrounded by lush vegetation and appears like a natural amphitheatre. Both are secluded beaches, excellent for those who wish to escape noise.
