    RM 1270 in August. We were not sure we could enter the port because of our strong draft so we stayed at anchor. There is a little background swell that can make it a bumper and especially bins just in the front port + a wreck. Look at the cards. Honestly this stop is not very interesting because it takes 2 hours to go to the bottom of the bay but it is a bit obliged because there is no other stop between Durres and Saranda. On the other hand luigi of the port was nice and put us in relation with a taxi to visit apolonia which is a magnificent site. The restaurants in Vlora look nice including The pretty chic Mandarin and private beaches near Vlora looked good (less those of orikum). Attention not possible to make the clearance to leave the country

    RM 1270 en août. Nous n’étions pas sûrs de pouvoir entrer au port à cause de notre fort tirant d’eau du coup nous sommes restés au mouillage. Il y a une petite houle de fond qui peu le rendre rouleur et surtout des casiers juste dans l’avant port + une épave. Regardez bien les cartes. Honnêtement ce stop n’a pas grand intérêt car on met 2h à aller au fond de la baie mais c’est un peu obligé car il n’y a pas d’autre stop entre Durres et Saranda. En revanche luigi du port à été sympa et nous a mis en relation avec un taxi pour visiter apolonia qui est un site magnifique. Les restos à Vlora ont l’air sympa notamment Le Mandarine assez chic et les plages privées près de Vlora avaient l’air bien (moins celles d’orikum). Attention pas possible de faire la clearance pour sortir du pays

    We anchored in 3 metres of sand about 200 metres off the swimming buoys which appear to run the length of the coastline here, making it hard to see where you could dinghy ashore. The metal rods mentioned in other posts are just outside these buoys near the groynes east of the marina. Entrance to marina looked tricky and would have cost us 80 euro a night for our 13.99metre sailboat. The anchorage was excellent, but need to be wary of fishing pots on approach.

    Good holding, susceptible to northerlies, plenty of room but as previous comment, keep an eye out for metal rods protruding from old jetty, and fishing bouys on the way in. Had a very comfortable couple of nights here
