This lovely bay is dominated by a castle fortified by Ali Pasha, accessible to visit if tied to the concrete jetty which we didn’t attempt. It was too high and fender-busting for our liking! We anchored in front of the military base in the northern end of the bay in 7 metres of sand. Clear water and good holding which you need for the kabatic winds that gust through in the evening. We were paid a visit by two friendly soldiers who swam out to verify who we were and how many on board. We asked for permission to stay for one night which was granted. It was a Sunday, we were one of just two boats so may have got lucky. If asked to move there is an alternative anchorage off the jetty or south of the headland near a hotel that looked ok.

Contrary to advice given to us by 2 agents in Saranda, we were not allowed to stay here for more than 1 night. On our arrival we tied up to the dock, only to be told by an official that we were not allowed against the dock, but could anchor anywhere in the bay. soon after, a military rib comes over and told us we MUST leave the next day. there was bad weather coming, but they insisted we understood we had to depart the next day
