The most nostalgic and historically popular beach in Lezha! Both beach and port, Shëngjin is beautifully framed by the lagoon which surrounds it. According to locals, Shëngjin’s name is connected to the Forest of the Fairies (Pylli i Zanave), located between Shëngjin and Velipoja. This area was also once called Medea, like the famous Medea of the Argonauts. The small harbor and beach have managed to survive and are widely known locally, though less so than the famous southern Riviera.
The beach has a certain charm and exclusivity not easily found elsewhere! Surrounded by pine forests and picturesque hills, the beach is located near the national road so it is easily accessible. In addition, the accommodation here is comfortable and economical, giving everyone the opportunity to enjoy Shëngjin’s natural beauty. Some of the local favorite restaurants are located in Shëngjin, in addition to several stylish pubs which liven up those wonderful summer nights.
