Take off :

Large, grassy take-off below the road. Moderately steep, easy.
Landing :

Landing on the beach of the camping is prohibited (it was used as a landing zone some time ago). Commonly an area south of the camp is used.
You may also consider landing the dirt road connected to the main road near Trpejca.
Toplanding is also possible.
Going there :

From the town of Ohrid head south down the side of Lake Ohrid (East shore - the other side is in Albania). Take the turning to Crespo(spelling). The take off is at the view point below the crash barrier.
Comments :

Fantastic site with great views over Ohrid, perfect for Acro, and late PM soaring. XC potential for 40+K. Strong winds in the middle of the day, great for HG, but PG get their share of the day as well! Spectacular vistas. Land on the beach, and take a swim.
Weather hazards :

strong winds, carefull!
Flight regulation :

none
