This is a most beautiful location. Your picture is taken from the mountains in Montenegro but there is also a lot to see on the lake itself plus plenty of good food and drinks in cafes and restaurants nearby.
We left Tirana, about an hour and a half drive to the big lake. Unfortunately, it rained suddenly. We sat in a restaurant at the foot of the lake.
Well worth a drive near (It's huge so I can't imagine you will drive all the way around) there's a lovely castle in shkodra that gives you the fantastic views to make it worthwhile venturing the distance for the lake.
Plenty of room to relax but also to admire nature, with some key bird nesting and stopover sights and beautiful natural features.
This is an unusual lake in that there is no swimming. It's a scenic spot near the Croatian border and the locals are anxious to make it a tourist stop, therefore there are too many boats, too many restaurants and too many rooms and no real marketing. While there is fresh fish…
