LALZI BAY

Lalzi Bay is located in one of the best-preserved areas of the Adriatic Sea, between the highly populated beach of Durres and Shengjin. This whole area is popular for its natural, historical and archaeological attractions, among which can be mentioned: “Rushkull Hunting Reserve”, “The Castle of Rodon”, “Cape of Rodon” and “Rrushkull Forest National Park”.

The natural vegetation of the area is 80 years old and wild and cultivated pines dominate it. “Rrushkull National Park” with 380 ha of highly attractive forests is located in Lalzi Bay. This coastline is located relatively far from the urban areas and it is an ideal destination for those who enjoy fishing or sailing.

The Cape of Rodon is a strip of land shaped as a peninsula in the Adriatic Sea. It has a triangular shape between the Bay of Rodon in the north and Lalzi Bay in the south. The “Castle of Rodon” was built in 1451-1452 by the Albanian national hero, Gjergj Kastriot Skanderbeg and served as maritime link with Western Europe. After the death of Skanderbeg the castle was control by Venice. According to the Illyrian mythology, Rhodos was a sea god like Poseidon and Neptune.
