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.
The country comes with more than its fair share of beaches. Budva alone has 35km of 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.

When you aren’t sauntering around upmarket Porto Montenegro, getting glitzy in Tivat and Kotor or tracing Lake Skadar on a long walk, how about heading back the way you came to experience Croatia? That’s the beauty of flying into Dubrovnik – it’s close enough to go back to if you want to explore both places.
