You will have some free time to enjoy the sun surrounded by emerald seas, while on the other side of the street you can have a coffee with a fantastic view of Sazani Island and Karaburun Peninsula. After the coffee break we will drive just few minutes and immediately notice the wild rocky beaches of the Ionian Sea, also known as Albanian Riviera.
