It is called ‘island’ because of the lagoon system that approaches near the city of Lezha. They are water systems like canals, which have interrupted the communication of the swamp with Lezha and its lands forming an island, but in reality, today it is normally connected with the main road that leads to Lezha and Shkodra. It is a village that also has agricultural activity, but tourism is a priority. It is known as one of the most visited tourist destinations in the north of Albania for its beautiful nature, for the observation of waterfowl and for its special gastronomy. While today, the space has expanded and tourists have the opportunity to visit it up to the coast. It is a large area where the lagoon intertwines with the surrounding environment with tall shrubs and trees.
It is located about 60 km away from Tirana. The lagoon is positioned southwest of the city of Shengjin, west of the villages of Ishull-Shengjin and Ishull-Lezha.
