Gjipe Beach is a beautiful beach in Albania with great views of the Adriatic coast. The beach is a pebble beach, so you may want to bring water shoes. Gjipe is located in Vlorë. Nearest town is Iljas, other places nearby are Dhermi and Himare.
Gjipe is famous for being inaccessible. You may be able to drive to the parking area by 4×4, from there it is about 15 minutes to walk. Please note however that the road to Gjipe is not suitable for regular cars.
The advantage of being inaccessible is that it naturally limits how many people come, so that you have more space. Anyway, if you come in high season then you can count on there being quite a few other visitors.
With a regular car you park further away and have to count on a 45 minute walk. An alternative is therefore to reach Gjipe by motorboat instead. No matter what you do, don’t take any chances with your car – it is better to enjoy the walk.
