Definitely must visit beach in Albania. Beautiful sunsets:) You can even stay over night in your tent. This was fantastic experience!

Don't understand the hype

Nice beach but not nicer than others in the area. Given this, don't think it's worth the effort to get there. Also a shame that there's not as much choice with food etc on the beach itself (and ice cream is nowhere to be found!).

Beautiful beach BUT I’LL NEVER EVER COME HERE AGAIN
Jul 2021 • Couples
Of course I could write my review about the stunning nature, the amazing crystal clear water and the adventure feeling to walk within 25 minutes from the parking place down to the beach. But while writing this review I’m still shocked what I have just experienced. After a beautiful day at this beautiful beach, we decided to stay over night at the local camping ground . For dinner we went to the restaurant close by. We ordered grilled seafood. What we received was basically a plate full of seafood garbage for 1500 lek (12€). I kindly asked the waiter what exactly I should eat on this plate and even more, how I should eat the garbage of mainly crabs. The restaurant manager then told me, this plate is not for filling my stomach. It’s just for sucking on pieces and enjoying the (in my eyes disgusting) taste. This I already found an quiet remarkable explanation. In favor of the manager I have to mention, that he brought us three additional grilled scampi and one octopus after our complaint. The most disgusting and shocking moment then happened minutes later. In front of guests of the camping ground exactly this restaurant manager cold blooded killed an rooster which was obviously not welcomed. I understand you might now say it’s just a rooster and you are in a kind of wild life camping ground. But the way the employees then bragged about the killing and how the rooster was thrown away in a black plastic back just leaves me shocked and disgusted by these people. I’m no vegetarian or vegan but I strongly believe every life deserves a minimum of respect. I’m having the deep desire to leave this place as soon as I can tomorrow morning. I will not even take the breakfast I have already paid. I never had such a deep desire to leave a holiday place like I’m feeling at the moment. If you’re a friend of wild life camping you might also be fine to throw your used toilet paper in an open trash pin as a sign over the toilet says “no paper in the toilets”. As this pin is was running over full of paper I immediately turned around and left this toilet. For the usage of such kind of toilets and the shower you’re charged 200 lek/ person. That the so called beds in the tent we rented were more like wooden boards is not worth mentioning as it was our decision (fault) to stay here over night on a short notice and we are not prepared for an camping holiday as it should usually be….

Excellent wild adventure
Sep 2020 • Couples
Came down to Gjipe for a day, but stayed for the night since there is camp at the beach. Also there are a few bars/restaurants at the location. We left the car at the parking, and went down on foot beacuse the road to the beach is driveable only by 4x4 vehicles.

GREAT BEACH
Aug 2020 • Friends
Gjipe Beach is very great beach.
It is public beach, you should take umbrella because theres no umbrellas to rent.

* i highly recommend to go with boat from Dhermi or Himara because the road is very bad. You should walk in mountain 30 minutes from parking place.

* Gjipe beach is must visit if you are near here.

* drinks are cheap dont take anything except umbrella.

Beautiful Beach with Shade - Not Too Busy!
Jul 2020
This is a great beach. It s a quick 15-20 minute walk from the parking area, although you can park higer up and hike a few kilometers through the canyon if you like. The walk to the beah is dotted with bunkers and surrounded by gorgeous views of the Adriatic. The beach itself is a pebble beach, so bringing water shoes may be helpful when walking around. But the water is warmish and pristine. The surrounding cliffs offer good shade, and a couple of bars and restaurants serve thirsty beach goers, as well as offer up some basic rental equipment like kayaks and standup paddle boards. I noticed lots of people were setting up tent and camping on the beach. For a less crowded, more down to earth beach exerience, this is a good spot

Our favourite beach ever
May 2020
The beach was so beautiful but was hard to get to it, we were told that Fotis beach hopping tours was doing it and we got lucky because he was about to leave. The most relaxing place in himare.

A wonderfull virgin beach
Aug 2019
The road to get there is isn't suitable for average cars so you either need an off-road car or the best way so you can even enjoy the other bays on the way is to get a motorboat tour.

Just Stunning

Well worth the walk to visit this beautiful beach. The water is delicious even at this time of year. Loved that you could grab a cheeky beer down there as well.
