Think Simboli can best answer this question. My wife, who grew up in Lezhe, tells me that Kune and Rana e Hedhun are the best spots to go for a swim. Of course she hasn't been there in years so things might have changed.
While in Lezhe I'd recommend you visit two of the best restaurants in all of Albania: Rapsodia and Mrizi I Zanave.
Thanks a lot, Plako, I'll probably visit both of those places when going.

Rana e hedhun isn't bad at all in my opinion and besides that there isn't one specific location I would choose. My uncle and I would just drive from the house until we saw some spot that looked nice and then we would walk down to it.
Thanks a lot - we'll be going by car, so that's probably very doable to do like you guys have done.
Are you going to get a hotel when you stay there or you going to stay in someone's guest room? Last year we rented out a room to a Kosovar couple from Peja and they seemed to like it well enough. It seems to be a common thing to do over there.
We're going to stay at some hotel a stone throw away from the beach, cousin knows someone who can hook us up apparently. Hotel Rafaelo or something like that.

I'll be here untill this friday . Shengjin has a decent nightlife , and usually the main beaches around the resorts are full of albanians from Kosove and Ilirida . Local population likes more Rana e Hedhun and Vain beacuse you can have a tend 100mt away from each other and the sand/water are natural . Shengjin is better than Durres and Kavaje but if you'll be staying in shengjin then just try to go as near as you can to Inheritor or on the other side towards Kune . Try to speak as much as you can as albanian from Lezhe otherwise they'll try to raise prices and ask for the price in Leke. The bus from Lezhe to shengjin costs 30 leke while the van 50 leke and they usually make you pay 100 leke. You should definitively visit Detari in shengjin if you want good genuine seafood (it doesn't cost much for the quality they serve). There are many other restaurants in Ishull-Lezhe in the area of Hoteli i Gjuetise and you could add also the two Plaku suggested as they have quality slow food . Iliria Sky and Plazza are good places to hang out and relax watching all the seaside from top of Shengjin.
We've not decided yet, Simboli, but I think during this week, so probably Wednesday or Thursday. Thanks a lot for the thorough guide, Simboli, it's much appreciated.
