A natural spring, the true depth of the Blue Eye has yet to be measured. The pool is the source of the Bistricë River which flows to the Ionian Sea. The clear, electric blue water gets its color from minerals pushed up from the bottom of the pool, in contrast to the greens and browns of the land around. Climb the metal platform above the water, from where you can look down on the lake. Enjoy a refreshment at the cafe's dock over the pool. The road to the attraction is rough, so use caution with rental cars. With our online itinerary creator, Vlore attractions like Blue Eye can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

Little bit hard to approach the parking places due the quality of the road and it can be easily crowded in the most frequently hours. The blue eye is beautiful one of the "must haves" in Albania. You can buy little presents and choose from different restaurants.
Very beautiful place and if you feel brave enough you can dive or swim in the crystal clear cold water. Try to get there as early as possible in the morning though cause later the traffic is horrible.
