Sarandë District (Albanian: Rrethi i Sarandës) was one of the thirty-six districts of Albania (which were dissolved in 2000) that is now part of Vlorë County. The area of the district was 749 km². The population of the district was 48,474 (2010 estimate). According to the census of January 1993, it was 53,700. The centre of the district was the city of Sarandë.
