Rana e Hedhun and Shengjin

Buy Tickets

Located only 3 kilometers from Shëngjin town, the Rana e Hedhun beach (Gheg dialect of Albanian), thrown our poured sand in English, remains relatively unexplored, and it is considered a rare forgotten Mediterranean landscape. It seems as if the sand dunes has descended from the mountain Rrenc while, in other moments, it seems that the sea has the more active role in shaping it. The pine trees surrounding the area make a stunning view and a worth destination, not far away from Tirana to visit on a day trip.
