Essentials in Albania
Coastline: Get ready to dip into the cool clear turquoise waters of the sea. For sandy beaches, stick to the north near the border with Montenegro near Shengjin, Durres and Vlore. South of Vlore, expect more pebbly beaches, equally beautiful!
Dajti Mountain: If you're visiting Tirana, the capital, while in Albania, take a hike up this mountain. It's a popular thing to do and offers the best views of the capital.
Castles: Many of Albania's cities have castles but the most impressive ones have to be Petrela Castle near Tirana, Rozafa Castle in Shkodra and Skanderbeg Castle and Kruje.
