  • Exploring pristine beaches: Dhermi stood out primarily for its beautiful coastline. The beaches used to be accessible only to the local population and without facilities, but in the last 20 years, they have changed dramatically and now offer hotels, restaurants, and other attractions. The most beautiful beaches are Drymades and the one in Gjipe Bay.

  • Path of the mills: Walking along the path of the old mills is a must-see. The name comes from the 7 mills that were found during the construction of the trail. You follow the route along the fast stream, in the shade of tall trees with the chirping of birds, and observe the path that connects the village houses with the blue of the sea. As you walk along the path, history accompanies you at every step, you can see two ancient churches, a picturesque waterfall, the rails of the first hydroelectric power plant ever built in Albanian villages, old mills, and other attractive places.
