    We moved here from Sarandë for a few days when strong southerlies were forecast. Anchored in 5m in a patch of sand amongst the light weed. The tourist areas on the waterfront of Ksamil had shut down for winter, so we saw very few people. Easy walking to multiple supermarkets and cafes/restaurants. Fisherman came out at dusk to set their nets, and returned at dawn to retrieve them, so arrival during the day is advisable. Good cell phone coverage from either Corfu or Albania. As we were so close to Greece, we changed our phone network setting from automatic to manual, and selected Wind GR, so that we didn’t have roaming charges with our EU sim. Good wifi from the restaurants that were still open for the cost of a beer or coffee.
