THE TOURIST RESORT MALI I ROBIT

Mali i Robit is a beach resort town with low-rise buildings in a lovely pine forest setting. It is not far from the many restaurants, bars and shops in 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, lots of 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 a rental car can be delivered to you directly at the apartment. There is private parking next to the apt.

FOOD/SHOPPING: There are food shops close to the apartment + a big supermarket 2 km away. Boutiques, big shopping centers, restaurants and bars in Durrës are open late.

RESTAURANTS: Many restaurants serve 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.

MEDICAL ATTENTION: Clinic in town + ambulance service direct to Durrës/Tirana hospital.

Owner info

About the owner: Hi there! My name is Cindy and I am originally from Canada and my husband is from Albania. I know you may be wondering how an Albanian and Canadian got together, but even though we are from two completely different cultures (which means we laugh at each other a lot!), we still have a lot in common including our love for nature, history, travelling around the world ... and fighting over who has to do the dishes. ;) We also enjoy renting out our 2 apartments in Mali i Robit, Albania and taking special care of our guests. It is a family business so if you decide to stay in one of our apartments, myself and my in-laws Vladimir and Qerime promise to do our very best to take care of you and to make your holiday a memorable one. :))
