At 5 kilometres long, Borshi beach is Albania’s longest stretch of sand with crisp clean waters and immediate depth backed by the green of the olives and looking out onto bright blue sea.
Borshi beach is the longest in the region of Himara and most probably in Albania with a stretch of more than 5 kilometres long and 30 meters wide of sand. The beach is quite a sight as you approach it along the dramatic coastal road leading to the wide plain with the eponymous village spread out before you. Even more remarkable is that tourism has barely touched Borshi, despite its significant community and busy olive-oil production industry – the beach is backed by little more than a few makeshift restaurants and bars. This is inevitably going to change soon, as developers train their sights on the empty lots backing the beach, so come now to enjoy this magical place.
Borshi is somehow an isolated area and what you can find for entertainment are only some improvised temporary restaurants, cafés and small shops. Interesting here are the traditional wooden tentas build by locals for shade, if you’re lucky enough to find one, you’ll feel grateful under its shade!
There are a couple restaurants serving seafood and Mediterranean cuisine and cafes at the front of the beach and many hotels and apartments for rent behind them. Water sports are also available here with Jet Skis, canoes, paddle boats and boat rides being the main activities.
To visit this beach follow the national road from Qeparo to Borshi and turn right next to the gas station. Now continue strait to the direction of the sea until a large stretch of sand is revealed in front of you!
At 5 kilometers, this is the longest unbroken beach in Albania – an impressive sight as it comes into view along the coast road en route to the town of Borshi.
