Cruising Guide: Montenegro

By our travel expertS

Get acquainted with the Adriatic and take a trip to Montenegro.

Rich with fjord-like scenes of crystal blue water and towering, rugged mountains dappled with medieval terracotta-roofed villages, the country and shores of Montenegro await you.

Budva

Budva is the hub for vibrant nightlife and is littered with small, rocky beaches. Stop off at one of the 35 beaches on the coast and experience what each individual beach has to offer. Party at Ploče Beach, relax on Jaz Beach and have a refreshing morning swim at Mogren Beach. Dubbed the ‘Montenegrin Miami’, the nightlife of Budva offers infinite options. Attend summertime theatre performances, stroll through museums, or go out for evening drinks and clubbing in Budva’s Old Town.

Sveti Stefan

Hugged by the blue waters of Montenegro, the enchanting, luxury private islet of Sveti Stefan awaits. Once a small, fortified Ottoman safe haven and village, the island is only accessible via a thin strip of walkway and has become an exclusive resort named Aman Sveti Stefan. A medieval cluster of terracotta roofs, courtyards, and cobbled alleys, Sveti Stefan offers a rich history and warm, red-hued public beaches on the North and South ends. The inner town, now accommodation, exudes luxury and history, open only to its guests.

Herceg Novi

Herceg Novi, nestled in the mouth of the Bay of Kotor, is the perfect place for some summer relaxation and healing. Visit the mineral springs of Igalo, Igaljske Slatin and enjoy the healing sea mud spa, dubbed Igalo Mud. Take a boat and head to Luštica Peninsula in order to visit the beaches and coves of Mirište and Žanjic, enjoy a coastal food or wine tour, or adventure up one of the many hiking trails. Take some time to wander the historical, Mare Fortress, built by the Bosnian King, Tvrtko I, in 1382.

Kotor

Described as being breathtaking and majestic, the Bay of Kotor is surrounded by fjord-like, rugged mountains that connect four bays, creating the harbour to the city of Kotor, the home to Montenegro’s medieval towns. Dazzling with cobalt waters and overflowing with the perfect photo opportunity, ‘Boka Kotorska’ is a scene from paradise. Traverse the winding roads of Kotor’s walled city, explore Montenegrin monasteries and citadels, and enjoy the town’s decadent seafood cuisine, and sample some quintessential Montenegrin meals.

Perast

Nestled in the Bay of Kotor, spend the day promenading the 1.5km length of Perast and explore its history. Part of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Venetian palaces, squares and churches face the water of the historic trading-port town. Take a short boat trip from Perast to its two islets of Sveti Đorđe (St. George) and Gospa od Škrpjela (Our Lady of the Rocks), or climb to the top of the Bell Tower on Perast for the perfect view of the out-of-this-world surroundings.
