Natural beauty

Montenegro is something of a looker. Its coastline is a patchwork of golden and volcanic grey beaches sloping into clear blue seas. Away from the water, the sand gives way to pine-cloaked mountains and fields carpeted with flowers. Get out and about among nature for more great photo opportunities.

Beaches galore

The country comes with more than its fair share of beaches. Budva alone has 35 sandy shores to its name, many of which are backed by buzzing seafront bars. The Adriatic waters are warm and calm, making them perfect for families with young children. Many of the stretches of sand are laid-back and peaceful.

Budva

Budva’s a haven for history buffs and sun worshippers, boasting a charming old town as well as a host of sandy beaches.

Becici

A classy, chilled-out beach resort on the Adriatic, Becici is also handy for spectacular scenery and the lively town of Budva.

Milocer and Przno

It’s all about sun, sea and sand at a relaxed pace in Milocer and Przno.

Where to stay in Montenegro:

Beaches

Budva is the main draw for beachfront spoils. Take your pick from the lively and bar-lined stretches, or maybe a laid-back belt of sand for a relaxing escape. Peaceful bays surrounded by pines come as standard here, while windsurfing and paragliding add a bit of excitement to any tanning spot.

Sights

In Budva’s old town, elegant Venetian houses sit back to back with belfry churches and shady piazzas. If you’re keen on nature, you won’t want to miss a trip to nearby Durmitor National Park, where you can hike through idyllic pastureland or raft along the gulf-like Tara Canyon.

Activities

One towering black mountain and a wowing national park makes Montenegro an instant winner with adventure seekers. It’s easily accessible, though the winding road from Kotor is a particularly breathtaking way of getting there. The woodland trails make for fantastic mountain biking or hiking expeditions too, while rafting’s also on the active agenda.

Eating and drinking

Italian staples like pizza and pasta make it on to most menus in Montenegro. For authentic local cuisine, bag a table in one of the traditional restaurants – known locally as konobas – and feast on rustic delights such as grilled kebabs, goulash and cabbage leaves stuffed with mincemeat. They’re real treats.
