With the summer touristic season set to officially begin by the beginning of June, it’s time to become familiar with the main things to know before you visit an Albanian beach in the summer.
While Minister of Tourism Blendi Klosi has not announced a specific date for the official opening of the summer season, local and regional tourism is expected to take place starting in late May. In an effort to minimize movement and, with it, the potential spread of the virus, the minister suggests Albania, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Bosnia as wonderful destinations where regional tourists can circulate during this summer. If each country strictly follows all safety measures and precautions, the pandemic need not cast a shadow over the bright summer that lies ahead.
In Albania, those tourists who have not canceled their plans are welcome to visit the country in June. However, new rules and regulations have been placed in order to maintain some control over the situation. Read over several of the most important ones below and keep them in mind as you make your way to the spectacular beaches of Albania:
a) Beach umbrellas, with a maximum of 2 beach chairs each, will be set up at 3.5 meters apart from one another.
b) While in the water, people cannot swim any closer than 3.5 meters to one another.
c) Lifeguards will be responsible for assuring that social distance is respected at all times.
d) In restaurants, there will be no more than 4 people for every 10 squared meters.
e) Upon entering hotels, the guests will have their temperatures checked.
f) Guests must have gloves, masks, and hand sanitizers handy.
g) Every hotel will have an assigned anti-COVID 19 coordinator who will ensure the safety and health of all guests.
All current regulations, such as on social distance, the wearing of masks, etc, remain similarly applicable at the beach as they have been in urban areas, unless otherwise notified. Let’s enjoy the beach but do not forget to be cautious!
