Ksamil, Albania

Cherish a rare opportunity to visit this almost unknown, picture-perfect destination, a resort village uniquely situated within Albania’s Butrint National Park. Embraced by the narrow Strait of Corfu to the west and the saltwater Lake Butrint to the east, Ksamil offers ample opportunities for exploration both on land and in the sea. Near the main beaches, several small islands emerge from the impossibly crystalline water, readily accessible by kayak, paddleboat or even an energizing swim.

Within the park, well-tended paths lead to the ancient Greek and Roman city of Butrint, a UNESCO World Heritage site that contains an enchanting 3rd-century BC theater still in use today. Other highlights include the Roman forum, the Sanctuary of Asclepius, an early Christian basilica and the remarkable mosaic floor of the baptisterium. You’ll discover that the Venetians also left their mark, constructing an imposing square tower and a castle that houses an absorbing archeological museum. From atop the fortifications, revel in far-reaching panoramic vistas of the park’s glistening waterways, forested hills and the distant mountains beyond.
