Albanian Paradise.

Home / Travel / Albania / Albanian Paradise.
Last weekend was very interesting! Me and some of my friends spontaneously decided to take a trip to the Albanian seaside, in Dhermi (Drymades), which is a little village in the south of the country. Last time I visited the place was 5 years ago, there was not much going on…just a few villas and beach bars, the place was almost virgin however; now the place is one of the main summer hot spots for young tourists and much more infrastructure has been built. There are a lot of beach bars with tanning beds and cabanas that turn into party venues for the night with foam parties and live performances from local DJs.

Regardless the groundwork in Dhermia, there are still beaches and spots around the village that have remained untouched and private. My friends and me decided to camp and explore the private beaches that were hidden around rocks or caves. The beauty of Dhermi is definitely surreal; the magnificent high mountains are contrasted with the crystal clear blue water and white rocks. While you are swimming you could look up and the view of the mountains is splendid.

Camping is another reason why I fell in love with this village, especially our cozy campsite that we shared with around 30-40 people. Because it was so hot I spent most of the daytime there socializing with people and chilling in the hammocks. It was so great getting to know those people and what surprised me the most is that most of them were there for over a month, they refuse to go back home and keep postponing it for another week. I totally understand them, the vibes there are too good to be anywhere else and that easy life away from the civilization is exactly what you need in August. Trying to charge your phone or get Internet was almost impossible, you are isolated from any kind of development and as scary as that sounds it’s a really good feeling because you live in the moment and become more aware of what’s going on around you.

Partying in Dhermi was also a new experience, we attended Soundwave festival which went on for three days; Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It was very small compared to other festivals I’ve been to but the stage was in the beach and it was magical. The sets would start in the evening and go on until the morning, seeing the sunrise while you are dancing to techno music was beyond beautiful. The music was also great, I realized how much I missed European techno when I was in the states and it felt amazing dancing in the rocks then taking a swim when you’re hot. Most of the DJs that performed were Albanian but they also had some international artists, it was my first time hearing their music but I was definitely impressed. However, seeing those happy people dancing barefoot you could tell how liberated they feel and how much they appreciate nature. That was the best vibe to be around for me and that’s why I was so sad when I left Dhermi but unfortunately I had duties waiting for me back home. The past 5 days have definitely been amazing and I am so grateful for the experience, it taught me a lot about myself and the way I socialize with people in compare to others. I definitely look forward to go back at least one more time before I start school…until then I can just look at the pictures and reminisce the good times ☺
