    Call harbour master on VHF 11 approaching the harbour. We anchored in 8m between the small fishing boat harbours, in front of Limani restaurant. The check in with Jelja (Saranda Summer Tours) was super easy, and is highly recommended. Her business card is as attached as a photo. As a cruise ship was in the harbour for the day, we couldn’t Med moor at the dock, so she met us at the small dock in front of the cruise terminal (pink building) after talking on VHF10 to confirm our time to arrive by dinghy. We then walked the 100m to her office. After she completed the paperwork (10 min), we returned with her to customs for our passport stamps. We spent 2 weeks here at anchor, however we did move 6nm south to Ksamil for a few days when strong southerlies were forecast. Med mooring is available 6 days a week for €17/day including power and water. When the cruise ship arrives you would have to move out from 1000-1900 so the tenders can bring the passengers ashore. 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. As we were so close to Greece (5nm from Corfu), 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. If taking bus trips then alternative is to get the tourist sim from Vodafone Albania, which lasts 3 weeks, and cost €13 (1600Lek - 1500L + 100L for SIM card) for 20Gb (15Gb+ 5Gb youtube). Good wifi from the waterfront restaurants for the cost of a beer or coffee. Fishing and limited chandlery supplies at Paisje Peshkimi (1km east of Limani Restaurant).

    City is great and cheaper. You can refill your propane. The anchorage is free but on the concrete pier they charge me 12 euros with water and electricity. Here is port of entry, but you need a agent. I spent 50 euros with taxes include - in 30 minutes they did all procedure and return with our papers. We can use the main pier to leave the dinghy and walk around. Very safe. The anchorage is very sheltered, it was blowing 29kt outside and here the sea was calm and sometimes 20 kts of wind.

    We anchored for 2 days in Sarande just beyond the swimming buoys in the centre of the bay - very good holding in sand and a 2 minute tender trip to the quay where we were met by our wonderful agent Jelja Serani from Saranda Summer Tours who helped tie us on between the police boats right in front of the pink port authority building on the northern end of the bay. Jelja took our passports and boat registrations to customs and immigration while her husband had our butane gas bottle filled - 15minutes and 50 euros later (5euro for the gas) we were done. Brilliant service and a fabulous tourist town with great local produce and a plethora of restaurants. The mussels at Limani are the best we’ve ever had and everything is SO cheap. Above all - the people are wonderful and could not be more helpful. Only downside is the noise from the nightclub at the southern end of the bay which competes with the Call To Prayer and carries on until late in the night.
