Gjipe bay is sandwiched by two well known beaches in southern Albania – Dhermi and Jale. Unlike these two beaches, Gjipe is still unspoiled by modernization. To get there one has to pass Dhermi beach and turn off at the sign “Manastir”. By a high clearance four wheels is possible to get by car at the beach or one has to park at the end of the road that is about 20 minutes walk from the beach.
In Gjipe is nothing to buy and no water sources around. You have to carry down everything and still it worth to do that since you will find yourself in a totally unspoiled environment by tourism industry.
Recently there are also some rock climbing routes opened on the clifs along the shore and also inside the canyon. The difficulties level of the routes varies from easy (4-5) to difficult (7-8).
