Vuno Things to Do

  • vuno

    this is a panoramic of the village, it's builded on a mountainside. Try to hike to the top of that hill, further is the mountain of Mjegullosh, there's a great view from the top.

  • village streets

    this is a typic street of Vuno. It must have been a very hard work to build the houses and the streets here, all those stones transported up and up in the mountain.

  • The cypress on the church

    In the lower part of the village is the cimitery and this is the church near it. Look at the small cypress on the wall of the church. Locals have a legend: when the tree will die, it will be the end of the world. Hope not.The cypress is declared a monument of nature by the government.

    There are 5-6 restaurants in Jal beach, most of them family-runned places very simple but cheap. There's also a mid-range restaurant, you can easily find. Seafood is really cheap in the small restaurants. But you can try meat also, like this lamb in the picture. Vegetarians, unfortunately will not have much choice.
    In Vuno village there's only one restaurant, in the center

    Favorite Dish: Special plate, ask at Adelina's restaurant for 'pite' early in the morning, kind of thick creppes, fantastic with some white cheese.

Vuno Nightlife

    After a good dinner in one of the restaurants by the beach, we stayed by the fire until late at night, drinking and talking (and had a nude bath also). There are two open discos near the beach, so you can here the music even if you are not right there. There are also some beach volley fields where you can see people playing until 2 am or so, crazy.
    In Vuno village there are not many possibilities for any night activity, there is a disco-bar-restaurant in the village where live music is played. If you have a car you can try to join the more lively nightlife in nearby Himara or Dhermi.

    Dress Code: Anything you like, but be sure to have something warm for the morning hours.

    We had finished our cigarettes at this moment :(

Vuno Warnings and Dangers

    This, look at the picture, is what we call national road here in Albania (but there are better roads also). Roads are in bad state in all the Albanian Riviera, except for the Llogara Pass. So, drive carefuly.
    Apart from the roads there are not other dangers, the situattion is very calm in this part of Albania.

Vuno Off The Beaten Path

  • Cika mountain

    Cika erects 2044 metres directly above the sea. It is in the 83rd place in the list of Europe's finest mountains with a primary factor of 1563 metres. ( www.ii.uib.no/~petter/mountains.html )To climb this mountain stop at Llogara and ask in the restaurants there for the path.I saw on a detailed map that there is a path from the top of Cika to...

  • White roads beach

    Rruget e bardha - White roads is the first beach you will see when you'll face the Albanian Riviera from Llogara. The name comes from the color of stones of the dry torrent that from mount Cika goes in the sea.There is not an asphalted road to the beach, but it's not so far from the main road. It is a big, almost totally deserted beach.This picture...

  • Walking to Himara

    This was great. Start your walk from Jal beach, ask locals for directions, you have to head south and go after the path, sometimes it gets hard to find where the path continues, so ask people if you are not sure. This is the best way to fully enjoy the Ionian landscape. This trip takes 1.30-2 hours, it depends how long you stay in the byway...

Vuno Sports & Outdoors

  • My most extreme sport :)

    This must be declared a sport. I go crazy when these big waves come on shore. It's so funny to see all the people in the beach playing like children with the waves, including men and women in their late 50's. The aim is to let the wave take you away while fighting to hold your head above the water. And sometimes it may be dangerous, so hold tight...

  • Fishy, fishy, fishy

    There is not any big thing to catch, just small fishies, but one can have fun anyway and, who knows, you may be much more lucky than the others before you. Most basic equipment is fine. Choose a rock and try your fate.

    Favorite thing: Walk, just walk in nature. Unlike other Albania 'hot' touristic spots that are now full of hotels builded without any criteria, here the situation is still calm in this sense. Leave the center of the village, and it's only you and the voices of nature, and maybe someone with his sheeps.
