Grame Bay, is located along the Albanian coast of the Ionian Sea on the Mediterranean Sea. It is one of the many bays in the western Ceraunian mountains along the Albanian Riviera, south of the Karaburun peninsula a couple of kilometers from Orikum.
The bay is home to valuable archaeological, historical and cultural values, as it served as an important port and refuge for boats that sailed along the coast during classical antiquity. On the vertical rocks and on the rocks, there are more than 1500 carved ancient inscriptions; the name of the bay is closely associated with the engraved inscriptions. Due to this fact, Bay of Grama is considered to be the richest rocky diary in the Mediterranean.
Representing a rocky bay, the shore is dominated by coastal cliffs, which slope vertically into the sea, and rocky and pebble beaches and has been designated a “Natural Monument” for its exceptional panorama.
The bay’s precious landscapes are of global significance, contributing to the ecological balance of the country and providing habitat for numerous globally threatened and endangered species. Sea caves are an exceptional ecosystem and provide an important refuge for the Mediterranean monk seal, the rarest species of seal in the world.
You can go to Grama Bay from the sea by speedboat or by boat with a group of people.
It is recommended to take the boat or speedboat from Palasa or Dhërmiu to Grama Bay (and not from Vlora, as it is a very long distance to travel from here and therefore much more expensive). The distance from Palasa to Grama Bay is about 10 nautical miles, and it can be traveled in 15 minutes by boat, you can spend 4-5 hours on that beach or even in the small bays that are along the route, and then return within the day at the beach of Palasa or Dhërmiu.
