Choose your family break from bold Budva, beachey Becici or sultry Sveti Stefan

A little under three hours and you'll land in Montenegro ready to start your family holiday, with the attractive resorts of Budva and Becici reachable in just a further 30 minutes.

The Budva Riviera is a strip of coastline with some of the country's best beaches and the Medieval town of Budva at its centre, which has a contrasting modern marina and family facilities including a big waterpark. Nicknamed Montenegro's Miami, there's a wide selection of bars and restaurants here.

Just next door, Becici is a 25 minutes' walk from Budva and boasts a two-kilometre sand and pebble beach. This purpose-built resort has a good line-up of watersports, some beach snack bars, plenty of restaurants and a handful of souvenir and craft stalls to browse. And further south, Sveti Stefan is a fancy islet for a laid-back holiday with great hotels nearby. Two pink-sand beaches join the picturesque former royal residence of Sveti Stefan to the mainland.

Best family friendly beaches

Among Budva's superb beaches, Jaz Beach is famous for hosting the Rolling Stones, and has seen plenty of music events since. As well as concerts, you can get your dose of watersports here, as well as boat trips and an inflatable trampoline zone in the sea.

The beautiful Becici Beach offers two-kilometres of space lined with bars and seafood restaurants. It's pebbled among the sand but there are plenty of sunloungers to lie on and soak up the incredible views. Although there's less to do here, the crystal clear water is ideal for the kids to play in.

Sveti Stefan Beach provides 300 metres of pink sand to chillout on, overlooking the quaint islet of the village. To get among nature, head to Petrovac Beach, which is part of a protected natural area with red sand. It has a promenade with places to eat and drink and scenic views across to islands floating in the water.

Best family activities in Montenegro

You can't go wrong with a waterpark when travelling with children, and Aquapark Budva is the biggest around, with seven extreme slides, swimming pools, 53 children's attractions, restaurants, a cafe for the kids and a shop. For more thrills with older kids, there's a karting centre in Podgorica or a classic trip to Budva Citadel, the fairytale-style Medieval fortress where kids can play make-believe knights, princes and princesses.

To delve further into history, take a trip to the National Museum of Montenegro in Cetinje, in the magnificent old Royal Court. Among over 10,000 exhibits are weapons and photographs from pre-Slavic Montenegro to the Yugoslav days.

Lots of ways exist to make the most of this scenic country, such as white water rafting on the Tara River or taking a more relaxing boat trip across Lake Skadar. The latter has the biggest bird reserve in Europe and is the only place on the continent you can see Curly Pelicans.

Other family holiday destinations

When thinking about your family holiday, other places to consider include lively Spain and its chilled out, family-oriented islands of Ibiza or Majorca. And the regions of Italy cover bold beach resorts, chic cliffside rivieras and huge freshwater lakes edged by some excellent family hotels.
