Diamond in the rough destination

Not the most well-known holiday destination, Montenegro welcomes visitors to make the most of the awesome nature that creates its beautiful landscape.

Budva, Becici and Petrovac present a fantastic spread of beaches as well as cultural areas filled with classic architecture and significant structures.

Those looking to relax in the summer sun and soak up a new culture will love getaways to Montenegro. Though it may be considered an unusual holiday destination, it provides experiences to rival the very best in Europe.

Places to Visit

Island of St.Nicholas

Take a boat trip out to this beautiful island lying off the coast of the Budva Riviera to enjoy a terrifically tranquil environment. Rest on the beach, swim in the ocean or grab lunch at the island's restaurant. The trip out to this hidden gem is an absolute bargain and keeps you out all day.

Tara Bridge

This tall grey bridge stands out amongst the green surroundings of the Tara Canyon. Based inland from Budva, the views from the top of this 381ft structure let you see for miles across the natural landscape. There is also the opportunity to zipline to the bottom.

Stari Grad

The old town of Budva lies on a little island that was linked to the land by a sandbar and in time turned into a peninsula. Surrounded by defence walls and towers, the town consists of narrow streets and alleys and small squares with precious monuments of different Mediterranean cultures that have marked the development of this town.

Impressive churches

Spires stand tall above some of the towns in Montenegro. Around the town of Budva alone you'll spot the Church of the Holy Trinity, St. Ivan Church and Santa Maria in Punta Church. Each enjoys a prime location within the town and by the water with beautiful interiors that are worth exploring.

Within the Budva Riviera

Large hotel complexes provide luxury surroundings for you to take it slow but you can't ignore the natural wonders that are outside of the walls of your accommodation. Montenegro's landscape is painted with a vivid green brush with thick forests and vast fields spreading over the hills and into the distance.

Much of the Budva Riviera region features long sandy beaches that are never too far away from your hotel. Sunbeds are more comfortable than laying your towel down here as the sand is quite coarse. You can also choose to sit and relax in the nearby restaurants and bars that line the beaches of the towns of Budva and Becici too.

Petrovac is further down the coastline but features a quieter beach which sits away from the glare of tourists. All three feature ideal opportunities to swim in the Adriatic Sea while Becici and Budva are home to water sport and boating opportunities.

Peaceful settings

With a tumultuous political history, Montenegro became an independent nation in 2006 after breaking apart from the former Yugoslavia. The country still features many nods to its history, throughout its architecture, statues and monuments. The town of Budva is built with cobbled streets and terracotta rooftops while the town's citadel features medieval towers and battle walls.

The Tara Bridge provides breath-taking views out to the pine-clad hills and also makes for a refreshing hike into nature. Becici's coastline is filled with interesting areas too with a ballet dancer statue sitting atop rocks while the Crka Svetog Tome is a church by the beach.

Budva nights out

Each of the large hotel complexes offer nightly entertainment for their guests within their respective bar areas. This can come in the form of holiday fun like karaoke and quizzes or with local entertainment with musicians and dancers performing.

Though the region seems to be a blend of culture and nature by day, there are opportunities to go wild at night with some excellent nightclubs found within Budva. Top Hill is a club designed to be a DJs dream where the dancefloor sits below podiums filled with dancers and entertainers. La Roca is a nightclub slightly out of town that is hidden inside a stone villa or visitors can try their luck at the Avala Casino.

Shopping for souvenirs

The town of Budva also presents the best shopping facilities along the Budva Riviera region. You can experience both ends of the shopping spectrum between the commercialised TQ Shopping Plaza and the small and traditional flea market found within the old town.

There are other smaller boutiques found around the town that can send you home with a local souvenir or a taste of Montenegrin fashion. Search through Scarlet and Reactive Boutique for items of original design.

Montenegrin cuisine

Since Montenegro is a relatively new country, its cuisine uses borrowed themes from surrounding countries. The coastal area lends Mediterranean themes with seafood being a popular dish while the rest of the country borrows Italian savoury foods, Hungarian goulash, Turkish moussaka and kebabs, and Croatian desserts.

Dining areas around the Montenegro coastline range from water facing terraces to outdoor dining within classic courtyards. The flavours are just part of the gastronomic experience in this country with a great selection of restaurants and other eateries providing wonderful settings.

Getting there

Holidays to Montenegro will actually see you land in Dubrovnik, Croatia, where the direct flight time from the UK is between two and a half to three hours. From there the drive to your resort from Dubrovnik will take between two and three hours.

The towns of Montenegro are well connected thanks to the thorough bus service that runs between the resorts. Car hire is available too or you can grab a taxi or water taxi to get you around. Boat trips can also take you out to the nearby Sv. Nikola Island.

Best time of year to visit

The best time to experience terrific temperatures in Montenegro is from May to September with June to August being the driest of those months. Average high temperatures reach 30°C at the height of summer making the beaches and nature look spectacular underneath the sunshine.

If you'd like to experience a serious summer celebration on your holiday in Montenegro then visit Budva during July when the Sea Dance Festival is held. This beach-based music festival features an array of genres with jazz performers, electro DJs and metal bands forming just some of the recent line-ups.
