THE UNIQUE TOURIST BEACH RESORT "MALI I ROBIT"
Mali i Robit is a beach resort town with low-rise buildings. It is unique in Albania because it is in a coastal area surrounded by a lovely pine forest and at the same time, it is not far from the many restaurants, bars and shops in the two largest Albanian cities Durrës and Tirana.
In the high season, Mali i Robit is great for families with children because this is the part of Albania that has the large sandy beaches (from Velipojë to Kavajë), lots of fun beach activities, and shallow water that is safe for swimming.
In the shoulder/low season Albania is quiet everywhere except Durrës and Tirana, so if you are looking for a relaxing holiday in a beachfront apartment, a bit of sightseeing, and the added bonus of great shopping and exciting nightlife nearby, Mali i Robit is the perfect place to be.
It starts getting quite hot beginning of April, so you can swim in the sea from approximately the end of April to the end of October. The resort attracts a mixture of international and Albanian tourists.
GETTING AROUND: Everything is within walking distance, and there are taxis at 'Klajdi' restaurant (50 m), and shuttle buses to Durrës, Tirana, Berat etc. from the main road (400 m). You can rent a car at the airport or car rental can be organized for you. There is parking near the apartment.
FOOD/SHOPPING: There are food shops close to the apartment + a big supermarket ("Maxi Market" - 3 km direction Kavajë). Boutiques, big shopping centers (ex. "Galaktik"), restaurants and bars in Durrës are open late.
RESTAURANTS: Many restaurants serve delicious, fresh, inexpensive seafood, traditional Albanian cuisine, pizza ... and dinner can also be delivered directly to you at the beach! :)
ALBANIAN MUSIC: 'Ujvara' open-air dinner/dancing club is in Mali i Robit. 'Kali i Trojan' is 3 km north.
CLUBBING: 'Tropikal' nightclub is 5 km north, and there are lots of night clubs in Durrës and Tirana.
