THE TOURIST RESORT MALI I ROBIT

Mali i Robit is a beach resort town with low-rise buildings in a lovely pine forest setting. It is also not far from the many restaurants, bars and shops in Durrës and Tirana.

In the high season, Mali i Robit is great for families with children because this is the part of Albania that has the large sandy beaches, lots of beach activities, and shallow water that is safe for swimming.

In the shoulder/low season Albania is quiet everywhere except Durrës and Tirana, so if you are looking for a relaxing holiday in a beachfront apartment, a bit of sightseeing, and the added bonus of great shopping and exciting nightlife nearby, Mali i Robit is the perfect place to be.

It starts getting quite hot beginning of April, so you can swim in the sea from approximately the end of April to the end of October. The resort attracts a mixture of international and Albanian tourists.

GETTING AROUND: Everything is within walking distance and there are taxis at 'Klajdi' restaurant (50 m) and shuttle buses to Durrës, Tirana, Berat etc. from the main road (400 m). You can rent a car at the airport or a rental car can be delivered to you directly at the apartment. There is private parking next to the apt.

FOOD/SHOPPING: There are food shops close to the apartment + a big supermarket 2 km away. Boutiques, big shopping centers, restaurants and bars in Durrës are open late.

RESTAURANTS: Many restaurants serve fresh, inexpensive seafood, traditional Albanian cuisine, pizza ... and dinner can also be delivered directly to you at the beach! :)

ALBANIAN MUSIC: 'Ujvara' open-air dinner/dancing club is in Mali i Robit. 'Kali i Trojan' is 3 km north.

CLUBBING: 'Tropikal' nightclub is 5 km north, and there are lots of night clubs in Durrës and Tirana.

MEDICAL ATTENTION: Clinic in town + ambulance service direct to Durrës/Tirana hospital.

About Cindy & Arjol

Hi there! My name's Cindy and I'm originally from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada and my husband Arjol is from Tirana, Albania - and now we live between Switzerland, Canada and Albania. I know you may be wondering how an Albanian and Canadian got together but even though we are from two completely different cultures (which means we laugh at each other a lot!), we still have a lot in common including our love for nature, history, and travelling around the world. We also enjoy renting out our 2 apartments in Mali i Robit, Albania and taking special care of our guests. It's a family business so if you decide to stay in one of our apartments, myself, my husband Arjol and my in-laws Vladimir and Qerime promise to do our very best to take care of you and to make your holiday a memorable one. :))

Cindy & Arjol purchased this apartment in 2012

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fabulous October Holiday!



Great location and well equipped spacious flat with a pleasant interior. Cindy's transfer arrangements from Shkoder and then to the airport worked perfectly. The sunset views are really beautiful! We were there end October, fantastic weather and useful having two apartments together in the same building for rental.

2 Beachfront Apartments, 2 Happy Families

  • 5 out of 5
We rented both of Cindy and Arjol's apartments in July 2014 and glad we did. We had an excellent holiday, one of the best ever.

We were a bit hesitant to try mid-Albania because we didn't know much about it, we had only been to the south. So we tried something new and discovered "Golem", the area of Albania that has the beautiful, large sandy beaches (the apartments are in Mali i Robit, which is in Golem).

Cindy's apartments are not just ordinary apartments, they are really special - well decorated, well equipped, and the direct sea view from the balcony is simply spectacular. And having 2 apartments in the same building is just perfect for 2 families who want to spend their holidays together but don't want to share 1 apartment.

The apartments are inside a resort complex with many activities for children and adults. There are cocktail bars and restaurants which serve seafood and traditional Albanian cuisine. On the weekend there was even a band playing traditional Albanian music, lots of people were up dancing and a good time was had by all.

Thanks for taking good care of us!

Great apartment and The Best Owners

  • 5 out of 5
Great apartment and The Best Owners

One of the best experiences I`ve had in a vacation rental. Although the owners, Cindy and Arjol were abroad during my stay, they were easily reached via text message whenever I needed something. Arjol`s amazingly friendly and attentive father, Vladimir, met me by car in Tirana and drove me to the apartment, and got me checked in. He stopped by the next day as well to bring me some things, and he even met me on the departure day and got me on the right shuttle bus to the airport. He`s also a great guy to have a few beers with.

The apartment is new and has everything you could want in order to enjoy your vacation. The kitchen is fully equipped, although I ate every meal out, and has cable, internet, and a washer, so you will never be bored. The view is absolute beachfront, as there is nothing between you and the water except about 60 feet of sand. Being lulled to sleep by crashing waves was nirvana. There is lots to explore along this beach, and some of the relics from its past, like the igloo shaped bomb shelters from the cold war era, were most interesting.

Mali i-Robit is a new smaller resort area about 15 minutes south of Durres. It`s most suitable for families and those who want a more quiet beach vacation. The hotels are small, and not as good a value as this apartment. There are many reasonably priced beachside restaurants and cafes, and plenty of small minimarts for basic provisions. You can reach this place by bus from Tirana in about 40 minutes, and there is not much need for a car.

I chose this place because the more famous Durres is unattractively overbuilt and is more rowdy and crowded, although if you are into nightlife, you can get there in about 15 minutes from here. I will surely return in the near future. Thanks again to Cindy, Arjol, and Vladimir for providing an amazing place for my first vacation to albania.
