We will drive to the lagoon of Karavasta. A one-hour drive takes us through Divjake to the Karavasta Lagoon, the largest and most beautiful off-shore wetland on the Albanian coast of the Adriatic Sea. The drive along the sandy belt between the Karavasta and Godulla Lagoons in the southern part of the Divjaka National Park is fascinating and full of surprises. This lagoon is the largest offshore wetland in Albania. Definitely the most beautiful lagoon on the Adriatic coast.
Three channels connect the two lagoons, brackish water habitats can be studied on both sides and all forms of Mediterranean forests and shrubs are present. The lagoon is famous for the rare Dalmatian pelican which has nesting grounds there. In fact 6.4% of the Europe’s population of this type of pelican is found in this lagoon.
Divjaka National Park comprises a dense forest of pines and deciduous trees and is situated among the sand dunes in the northern part of the lagoon.
After you can have lunch in a local restaurant.
