Divjaka Beach is one of the best preserved natural beauties of Albania. The sea is shallow and excellent for children and family vacations. Divjaka Beach is a stretch of roughly 15 kilometers of white sand lined by pine forest, and it is a popular seaside destination for thousands of tourists and day-trippers from south-central Albania. The sandy beach is huge (250 m wide from forest edge to water in some areas) and even in peak season, it is possible to walk further up or down and find some privacy.
Sand dunes are situated in the northern part. The dune system is 15 km long and on average 40-50 m wide. The sand dunes are not well developed, their altitude varies from 1 to 2.5 m.
The pine forest of Divjaka covers 1100 ha, 700 ha of which is National Reserve (established in 1966). The east is bordered by agricultural lands and the Karavasta lagoon and in the west by the sandy littoral belt. The ecosystem within the forest is very diverse.
Divjaka beach offers great water sports, eco-tourism, nature lovers and bird watching opportunities.
