The nearby Canyon of Gjipe is situated in the lower part of the Gjipe Brook, between Vuno and Ilias, two villages close to Gjipe beach. This canyon represents a narrow strait, created by the activity of the brook flowing through its narrow pass. It measures over 800 miters long, 10-20 miters wide and possesses a few shallow caves. The cracks on the cliffs make it very difficult to climb down the walls of the canyon without professional equipment. Climbing up and down the Gjipe Brook is very dangerous because of falling rocks and is inadvisable. The scenery is amazing and close by is the beach of Gjipe with clean sand and sea, small caves and a rocky shore. To explore the canyon, drive towards the beach from the National Road (about 20 minutes) to Gjipe Beach and explore the bottom of the canyon from there. Accommodation and food is possible in the nearby villages of Vuno or Dhërmi.
