Blue Eye, Vlore

A natural spring, the true depth of the Blue Eye has yet to be measured. The pool is the source of the Bistricë River which flows to the Ionian Sea. The clear, electric blue water gets its color from minerals pushed up from the bottom of the pool, in contrast to the greens and browns of the land around. Climb the metal platform above the water, from where you can look down on the lake. Enjoy a refreshment at the cafe's dock over the pool. The road to the attraction is rough, so use caution with rental cars. With our online itinerary creator, Vlore attractions like Blue Eye can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • The shades of blue and green are really unbelievable. I wondered if the colors would be a vibrant as pictured and they are. It is truly a magical place and well worth the time to visit.  more »

  • Little bit hard to approach the parking places due the quality of the road and it can be easily crowded in the most frequently hours. The blue eye is beautiful one of the "must haves" in Albania. You can buy little presents and choose from different restaurants.
  • Great jungle and clear spring. I would have liked to make the hike, but it was closed as not being maintained.
