Narta Lagoon

Narta Lagoon
Narta Lagoon is situated on the south-eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea and stretches over 10,000 ha. The site consists of salinas, sand dunes, salty land and cultivated land. The area is bordered by the hills of Zverneci and two small islands are located on this side of the lagoon. Narta Lagoon is the second most important site for water birds in Albania and it is a heaven for nature lovers. In the winter, more than 48,700 seabirds find their home here, creating a true bird watchers’ paradise. The beauty of Narta Lagoon consists of its rich marine life, the diversity of plant species, the remarkable sand dunes created by the wind, Vjosa River’s delta and the 195 kinds of poultries counted in the area. Narta Lagoon (Laguna e Nartës) is also important for eco-tourism and the production of salt.
