With a coastline stretching 293km, Montenegro’s 120+ beaches are a draw for visitors and locals alike. Some are
idyllic soft sand, others pebble; some offer wide open spaces while others are nestled into hidden coves. So whether you are looking for a private spot to stretch out and relax in, somewhere to practice your kite-surfing, or a beach bar with live DJ and cocktails, there is a beach here for everyone.
The longest and most dramatic is surely Ulcinj at the southern most tip of Montenegro. Named for its length, ‘Velika Plaza’, meaning ‘long beach’, is also one of the warmest and most scenic spots on the Adriatic coast, stretching all the way to Ada Bojana – the river island that separates Montenegro from Albania.
Further north along the coast is the ancient port town of Bar dating from the Roman and Byzantine era. The villages of Sutomore and Čanj attract visitors to their sandy beaches and beautiful waterfront promenades, while the Old Town of Bar attracts attention for its historical monuments and olive grove containing what might be the oldest olive tree in the world.
