We all dream of a glorious summer holiday, but with prices seemingly going up every year, it's getting harder to save for a European trip.

But what if there was a holiday destination, dubbed the "Maldives of Europe", which you could fly to for "less than the price of a Domino's pizza?" Sounds good, right?

Well, that's exactly what TikTok user @kieranbrowntravel decided to do - and the destination he visited looks picture-perfect.

Kieran said pints can cost as little as £1.10, while hotels could be found for just £20 and he said it was "paradise" there.

He added: "Why go on an expensive summer Europe trip to Greece, Italy, or Croatia when you can go to this underrated unknown gem?" The stunning location he was talking about is Ksamil, in Albania.

The TikTok user then explained the average temperature between the months of May to September is 28 degrees, "meaning it's the perfect summer destination".

"Make the most of this destination before it gets too popular and the price increases," he urged. He said there were beach clubs, the nightlife was great, and the sunsets were impressive too.

Kieran said they were some of the most beautiful he'd seen.

"After visiting 100 countries, this is definitely up there in my favourites", Kieran admitted. He said you can either "fly into the capital and transfer to the south", or "fly to Corfu in Greece and get a short boat over".

In the comments section, one individual queried: "Just looked. One week all inclusive £1,600pp where you getting your info lad?" To which Kieran retorted: "Why would you book an all-inclusive when the beer costs £1 and the hotels are £20. Book it separately without all-inclusive."

Another person chimed in: "Most reservations are made in January for the summer, today you can't find a cheap flight for next week. Especially from October to April there are 10-pound flights", suggesting those seeking bargain flights may need to bide their time.
