Where to stay in southern riviera?

My girlfriend and I are trying to decide which beach town to stay in for 3 nights during mid August. So far i've looked at Vlore, Dhermi, and Himarë. Considering that we don't have a car which beach town would you guys recommend? We are interested in a place that won't be insanely crowded, and is accessible via public transport for Tirana.

I'm currently leaning towards Vlore, but i'm a little concerned that it will be overly crowded.

When it comes to accessibility, Vlore is the best choice. Dhermi and Himare got better beaches but buses to/from them are not frequent.

Would you say that staying 3 nights is Vlore is appropriate? Are there enough interesting things (beaches,hiking,food) close by to keep us occupied?

Close to Vlore there are the beaches of Radhime and Orikum.The Llogara National Park is not too far from there. There are plenty of bars and restaurants in Vlore.

This is my account of the beaches we visited this summer which may be helpful. Vlore is massive so there is a lot of space but it wasnt to my liking.
