Montenegro's most picturesque coastal towns

Holidays to Montenegro offer an enticing combination of dramatic mountains and forests, picturesque medieval towns and a stunning coastline on the Adriatic Sea. Some resorts are nestled in secluded tree-fringed coves and others have dramatic cliffs with rocky outcrops where you can find a quiet spot to lay down your towel. There are also relaxed family-friendly destinations as well as beach-party hubs where you can have fun into the early hours.

We’ve put together some of the best coastal destinations to help you decide where you’d like to spend your amazing Montenegro holiday getaway.


Budva is the capital of the Budva Riviera region, which is popular for its sandy beaches and lively nightlife.

There are several beaches here, such as Ploce Beach, which offers beachside bars, para-sailing, jet-skiing and a party vibe in the evenings. Mogren Beach is where to head with the family and kids – backed by spectacular layered cliffs this beach is a little quieter and has amazing views of the mountainous coastline.

Dating back 2,500 years, Budva’s old town is medieval with stone walls built by the Venetians and a network of narrow streets. There are several interesting sites including the citadel and a 15th-century Podamine Monastery. A must-see is the ballerina statue, a dancer in mid-pirouette looking out to sea. From Budva, you’re also only seven minutes’ drive from the fashionable town of Becici with a two-kilometre beach.


The quiet town of Kotor is a designated UNESCO World heritage site due to its fascinating cultural heritage. Sitting between majestic mountains and a sheltered bay it has the romantic atmosphere of a perfectly preserved medieval town. There are winding alleyways, quaint squares and ancient buildings which are still in everyday use today. Behind the facades are restaurants, bars and clubs where you can make the most of your holiday until the early hours.

With so much history around you there’s plenty of Instagram-worthy scenery. The ancient fortifications and castle are spread out over a mountain, so it’s a steep climb, but once you’re up there you’ll revel in the panoramic views. There are also sites to visit such as the Maritime Museum and the spectacular 12th-century St Trypthon Cathedral. Kotor loves cats and has a lot of them, there’s even a Cats Museum.
