Sun 8 Jun BLUE EYE


My last full day in Saranda. I’m first at breakfast (7am) and on the road by 7.45. Heading out on the main road to Gjirokastra, just 20 minutes along the road I pull off into the hills to The Blue Eye, an underwater spring that bubbles up through a deep pool through a rock opening that’s 45 metres deep. As you look down into the spring it’s electric blue and iridescent, quite mesmerising. It can produce up to 10 cubic metres of water a second which cascades into a torrent of water that rushes off through the woods. A perfect beginning to Sunday morning.
