The climate in Albania
Albania has two climatic regions. The coastal plain has a Mediterranean climate where summers are hot and winters mild and wet. The mountainous east is rugged and inaccessible. There is a continental climate with harsh winters and lots of snow. Especially in the north it can be very cold. Summers are warm with the occasional hefty downpour. Albania has not yet really been discovered as a tourist destination. This limits itself mainly to the cities. Saranda is the best known seaside resort.
