The sleepy south

Head down the coast and you’ll find Petrovac, a dozy, down-tempo fishing village. Nestled coolly in the shade of a Venetian fortress, Petrovac is ever so popular because of its beautiful beach, yet it never gets overcrowded. Rest and relaxation comes first in this south-westerly resort, so be sure to bring a book or two. Beaches may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a holiday in Montenegro, but rest assured, there are some stunning sands!

Lake Skadar is located in southern Montenegro, easily accessible from Becici, and is one of the most beautiful lakes in the Balkans. It’s a protected national park surrounded by dramatic mountains, while just metres from the bank sit lily-pads that stretch out into the water like a field of grass. It’s a birdwatcher’s paradise with over 260 different species and the mountains are home to wild tortoises, coloured lizards and amphibians. Among the many spots along the bank of Lake Skadar, one of the most picturesque is Kator Bay. Here you’ll find rows of terracotta roofs and a sandy beach which is ideal for swimming.

You can even take a boat trip on the Golden Frog, the tiny wooden cruiser that takes visitors on trips past the many sights and sounds of the lake. Choose a cruise that suits you, with shorter and longer sailings available and a variety of tour guides who are all very friendly and knowledgeable on their surroundings. You’ll top up your tan, see some incredible views, and even learn a few things.

Admission to the national park is very low so it makes a great day out for keen nature lovers and those looking for a cheap holiday in Montenegro.

Climb the highest mountain

Sea Dance welcomes musicians from all over the Med each July to perform to crowds of revellers and is extremely popular with those enjoying Balkan holidays during peak season. While in September, Petrovac opens its venues up to the annual Jazz Festival, spreading music all throughout the country.
