Best time to visit Albania

Windsurfing

The beautiful coastline of Albania provides excellent opportunities to enjoy water sports

Albania has several windsurfing destinations including Velipojë, Durrës and Karavasta. Velipojë resort enjoys the greatest popularity. With its enclosed bay and Vilun lagoon, it is the ideal place to practice or learn windsurfing. This area is famous for its constant flat water, unusual waves, and steady side-shore winds. The area of Velipojë is great for those who want to practice freeride, race, or slalom.

Even though windsurfing is available all year round, sports fans prefer to practice this activity from as early as March till late November. That's the warm season which allows enjoying windsurf without neoprene. Learning packages are available mainly between April and October. Summer months of July and August are the most comfortable and hence also the most expensive. The best hours for windsurfing are between 1 pm and 5 pm when a strong west wind creates good waves.
