The view from the Green Coast Resort offers one of the most breathtaking views of the Ionian Sea. Amidst trees and flowers, the villas welcome their guests in a blend of colors passing from greenish to bluish. Down below the resort, set back from the white beach is the Beach Club. All the 142 villas are tucked into the lush vegetation around the resort, and all boast outstanding sea views.
Experience Nature Green Coast Resort is situated on Palasa valley, which is a natural extension of â€œVetĂŤtimaâ€? mountain and which is the product of erosion and delta formations of many mountainous springs. Upper North is the National Park of Llogara, famous for its unique pines and wild life, standing proudly at an altitude of 2,000 m over the sea. The delta is vegetative and spills in two beach apertures and limestone extensions that smoothes into the sea. Beaches are beautiful and conventional with white mid thick sands mixed within small calcareous stones. Under the sea, a wide range of marine species inhabit the complex branched torrents and streams. Karaburun Peninsula is one of the best preserved parks not only in Albania but also in the Mediterranean. Serving as a military base during communism, this area was safeguarded from human activity. There you can find a lot of natural caves which can be reached and explored only by boat. Experience diving in the natural marine park and you will leave with unforgettable memories. While on shore, Karaburun peninsula offers vast opportunities for hiking in the middle of the nature and enjoying the alluring view of the Adriatic and Ionian Sea.
Experience History and Culture Green Coast Resort is located in one of the most interesting regions with respect to the historical and cultural perspective. From antiquity, a time when the Illyrian tribes of Chaonians and Labeats ruled this region until the Roman Empire occupied all the Illyrian tribes, to the actual days, the entire area of the Albanian Riviera is full of history, cultural and historical monuments. During the Roman Empire Civil War, Caesar with his army debarked on Palasa Beach, exactly where the Green Coast Resort is today. This is also the time when Palasa was mentioned for the first time in history. Himara used to be the most important inhabited area with its castle of more than 3,500 year old, and it played a key role during the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman Empire as a commercial and military center. During the centuries, many cultural monuments have enriched the legacy of this area and the visitors can find castles, churches, monasteries, old typical houses that create some of the most unique villages of the Mediterranean, old stone mills, natural caves used as harbors from the pirates, etc. The most known ancient city of the region is Butrint, now a part of the UNESCO world heritage list.

Outdoor activities include sailing, swimming, canoeing, fishing, mountain biking, parachuting, diving, excursions, marine tours, diving, paragliding, and exploring the seaside caves of Karaburun by boat. Indoor activities vary from water sports to basketball, beach volley, meditation, etc. Enrich your experience as you take part in some of the regionâ€™s most traditional activities and unique cultural experiences such as the process of collecting and making olive oil, homemade wine and/or raki from grapes, learning about the history of three Empires, and exploring the archeological remains of this region.
