Hello travelers I am a painter and visual arts teacher in an International school in Tirana and currently me and my husband are managing a camping next to my hometown Shkodra. It has been a blast working this little camping near the sea and meet our guests from all around the world. this has the meaning of the name is a hidden place an escape. Its located in Baks-Rrjoll 100meter from the Adriatic sea and the lagoon, behind there are little hills for hikes. 5km walking you can see the only Sand Dunes of Albania “Rana e hedhun” and 25km you can be is the historical city of Shkodra also known as “the crib of culture”
This camping is the first eco camping in the North of Albania. The area is not very well known so doesn't have mass tourism, so we have the possibility to taste also the local products 0km like veggies and cheese or yogurt from the garden of the farmers around.
The campsite has a little garden all the facilities toilets showers kitchen, kitchenette for the guests, wooden houses, ground for tents and parking for little vans or little campers. Its more a community campsite because we accept maximum of 50-60 people not more. We also cook 2meals that are optional with the season products.
