SHEN JANIT - Seen from the NW

SHEEN JANIT BEACH

Restaurant at Sheen Janit Beach

WHAT & WHERE

The bay is on the Bay of Vlorë next to Cape Gallocevit (lighthouse).

It is a nice beach, offer a small restaurant/bar (see picture on the right) during the high summer season and some pretty Caribean water colors. It is a popular day-trip landing for local people.

APPROACHES & ANCHORAGE

Give a wide berth to the SE entrance with its derelict pier while approaching. The rest of the Bay shallows slowly and you can anchor in 5 to 15 m of water. The ground is gravel with isolated rocks.

The bay doesn't offer a good shelter from either swell from the Adriatic or the predominent NW wind. It is a nice place in calm conditions.
