Diving Albania

29 February 2016
The Republic of Albania is opposite the heel of Italy and north of Greece. It borders the Mediterranean, with the South-West of Albania on the Ionian Sea and the North-West on the Adriatic. Many dive sites in Albania have yet to be explored. It is a new area for diving, but the number of dive centres is increasing.

In June 2014, Albania became a candidate for accession to the European Union.

Summer temperatures average 24 °C. For summer diving, a 5mm wet suit is recommended.
