Around 5 km (3 miles) north from Llaman beach, the village of Himare is situated. Himare is divided into two parts – the new Himare is just beside the coast with beaches, pubs, restaurants and guesthouses.

Himare - Old Town and Livadh Beach

Old town of Himare (around 3 km/1.8 miles from new Himare) is perched on a beautiful hill that offers amazing views over the area and the Livadh beach below. It has a few churches and beautiful, old stone buildings with blue doors and grapevine. The town is neglected, however, and many of the houses have been abandoned. It has such a huge potential though. If the building were restored it could be as nice as all the well known little Greek villages.

To get to the Livadh beach which, you’ll have to walk down another 2 km (1.2 miles).The beach is also wide, similar to Borsh and Himare beaches. The mountains and the old town of Himare create a beautiful view and you can enjoy a nice meal at one of the local restaurants.

Around 5 km (3 miles) north from Llaman beach, the village of Himare is situated. Himare is divided into two parts – the new Himare is just beside the coast with beaches, pubs, restaurants and guesthouses. It is a bit hectic and chaotic, typical of southern Balkans, with donkeys roaming freely in the streets. But that’s the charm of it! The beaches around are pretty nice, wide and the water is clear.

While wandering around the town and waterfront of Himare, me and my Brazilian friend had a chat with some locals at a grocery store. It was the time of FIFA World Cup in Brazil and when they found out that someone from Brazil was visiting them, they decided to invite us for free pints (!) to the beach pub! The pub was all decorated with Brazilian flags, we were given Brazilian T-shirts for free and when Brazil won, the locals made a firework show just for us! It was the most extraordinary thing I ever came across while traveling (besides the free wine I got at the security control at Tbilisi airport in Georgia – read the post about it here).
