Llamana beach, this somehow hidden corner, on the coast of Himara, is so lovely. The tourists find themselves between the sea, mountain and sky that seems like a single joint point.
After the town of Himara and Potami neighbourhood, a small and beautiful beach lies ahead. Stuck between rocky hills, the beach is well frequented during the high season, expect to find both swimmers & jet-skis around. Sharp look-out required! It has very deep waters and colder temperatures than any other beach in the region because of the underwater springs emit cold water throughout the year. It is a well-protected bay with a gravel beach and has some famous beach bars and restaurants. A little south from the beach visitors can see the back entrance of the famous submarine tunnel of Panormi (or Porto Palermo).
The beach is popular for its midday beach party's and most of the times is overcrowded and full of sun beds and umbrellas. At the south corner there is a free stretch of sand where you can stay without paying anything. It worth’s to check the area north where some small hidden beaches and coves are located.
There are two restaurants serving seafood and Mediterranean cuisine and one beach bar at the front of the beach and a bit further up to the road some apartments for rent. Water sports are also available here with Jet Skis and boat rides being the main activities. A nice thing to know is that the water here is cold even during summer because of some underwater springs.
The beach is just 3 kilometers away from the town of Himara. Simply follow the national road that leads to Qeparo, after a couple of minutes of driving the beach is revealed in front of you. Beware that in high season there high demand for car parking and it might be difficult to find a space.
Home to some of the coldest beach waters of the region.
