After arriving to Maminas or Gjiri i Lalezit, in their bus stations you will find many taxi-s or private vans that will drive you to Altantid beach for a small amount of money (approximately 100-150 ALL). In cases you don’t want to spend money for the trip, you can try hitch-hike. It will be so fun!
