About

“Syri i kaltër” (Blue Eye) is the biggest out of 18 springs which surface from the earth some 25 km away from Saranda, in the south of Albania.

Its colour is deep blue in the centre where the water flows out, and light blue at the sides where the green vegetation creates an impression of eyelashes. People say that the spring was named by an engineer in a hydro-power station, who was reminded of the blue eyes of his beloved.

Directions

The Blue Eye is about 15km from Sarande. The site is about 2km along a gravel road from the main road to Gjirokaster.

It is possible to get their on public transport. From Sarande, catch the bus to Gjirokaster, or visa versa, and ask the driver to drop you at Syri i Kalter. You will have to walk the 2km to the Blue Eye. Getting a bus back can be trickier. You can stand on the road and see if you can flag down a bus, or you will have to hitchhike.
