On the road between Gjirokaster and Sarande, both of which are must see loactions for different reasons, lies ‘The Amazing Blue Eye’. It’s a natural water phenomenon where a powerful natural crystal clear water spring bubbles up from beneath the lake creating a deep blue eye effect. It is quite a stunning sight and well worth a visit if you’re on that road. It is a very popular tourist attraction and many day trippers come to see the ‘Blue Eye’ and to bathe in the fantastic clear water.
There are a couple of bungalows you can rent for the night to enjoy the peace when all the day trippers have gone home. A good bar and restaurant with a seating area on the edge of the lake. A great place to enjoy a cold Tirana Beer.
If youre coming on a minibus just ask the driver to drop you off at the ‘Amazing Blue Eye’ and when you are finished just for another mininbus going your way. It’s only about a 20 minute walk from main road.
Its a cool place to just chill out for a while. Come enjoy this natural wonder!
