Karabun-Sazan National Marine Park
Karabun-Sazan National Marine Park is located in the southern part of Albania and it is established to be the only National marine park of the country in 2010. The marine park is 16km long and covers an area of 12.428 hectares of surface in total. The park consists of surrounding sea water, one nautical mile from the shores of the Karabun Peninsula, the largest peninsula of Albania located in the region of Vlora where the Adriatic Sea meets the Ionian Sea, and the Suzan Island, the largest island in Albania. The Karabun Peninsula itself is a managed nature reserve, while Suzan Island is a military zone which was opened for the public in July 2015. There are two ways to discover the scenic beauty of the area, the breathtaking isolated beaches and stunning views of the coastline, as well as its cultural values, such as: ruins of Greek, Roman and World II ships and ancient inscriptions of sailors on shore; by the sea or through all day hiking for the admires of the adventure travels. A really important Remarque before you decide to explore the treasure of this National Park is that permission may be required from the local authorities, as the park is located nearby military bases.
