Montenegro

Beautiful little country with mountains, valleys and lovely beaches

Little discovered Montenegro enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate and has a 300km picturesque Adriatic coastline with over 100 beaches.  Its interior is rugged and mountainous dotted with historic walled towns and traditional villages.  Highlights include:

  • UNESCO listed Kotor, a medieval walled city with Venetian inspired architecture. Set in a fjord-like bay encircled by steep cliffs it has a small  shingle beach just to the north of the city.  
  • Budva is the most well known resort with a buzzing atmosphere, a lovely old walled town, good beaches, a sea-front promenade and plenty of chic restaurants, cocktail bars and some night clubs.  
  • Sveti Stefan is an iconic fortified former fishing village connected to the mainland by a narrow isthmus and now home to a luxurious Aman resort.  
  • Lake Skadar is the largest expanse of water in the balkans and located half in Montenegro and half in Albania
  • Durmitor National Park along the Tara river canyon has one of the deepest gorges in Europe, clear lakes and forests which are home to bears, wolves, wild boar, chamois and many species of birds.
  • Ostrog Monastry, two hors north of Budva is a monastery resting on a cliff 900m above the valley.  You can visit the frescoes in the lower monastery before taking the steep climb to the upper monastery.  Alternatively you can access the upper monastery from the main car park.  
  • Perast is a tiny town north west of Kotor with numerous churches, Venetian palazzi and the opportunity to take a boat taxi out to the charming islets of St George and Our Lady of the Rocks
