At the far southern end of Montenegro, just before the Albanian border, you’ll find a 14-kilometre beach, the longest on the coast. Known as Velika Plaza (literally: Grand Beach) and comprised of fine golden sand, it is ideal for families with younger children as well as extreme water sports.
Acknowledging that it is not always good to mix the two, families and tourists tend to congregate on the first few kilometres of the beach closer to Ulcinj, while the southernmost third attracts legions of kite surfers and windsurfers drawn by the shallow waters and consistent wind conditions. The middle third meanwhile, dotted with beach bars, draws more of a party crowd.

- Have a picnic lunch on the sands of Velika Plaza
