Montenegro is a paradise for beach lovers. On the shores of the Adriatic Sea, there are cute towns that attract tourists who want to stay on the coast among the picturesque mountains and pine groves. A huge plus was the locals, who speak well in Russian.

This place is called the “Montenegrin Riviera” because of the many different beaches: wild or crowded, sandy or pebbly… There are about 20 of them here.

Jaz is one of the most beautiful beaches of Budva. Picturesquely surrounded by mountains, it is equipped with everything necessary for a comfortable stay: changing rooms, showers, paid and free zones. In addition, there is a large number of water activities to choose from: skis, scooters, and catamarans. You will not stay hungry either: there are several cafes on the territory.

Sand and pebble beach with turquoise water Mogren, which earned the Blue Flag for high standards, is located in the middle of the forest and rocks. It is easily accessible from Budva. Infrastructure, water activities, free zones – everything is attached. Great for families with children, thanks to the smooth entry into the sea.

On the pebble beach of Ploce with inserts of stone terraces and a convenient descent into the sea is worth going to lovers of fun. Four swimming pools with seawater, one has bar tables, and a DJ plays during the day. And children will be happy with the inflatable slides.

A small peninsula with a resort and a well-preserved fortress Sveti Stefan has become the city’s hallmark. It is connected to the shore by a golden beach, perfect for a comfortable stay with a beautiful view.

Another beach with the Blue Flag and clean sea – Becici – stretches large but soft sand for 2 km. It was loved by tourists with children, a real paradise for them: attractions, playgrounds, and water activities.

In the bay, surrounded by a pine forest, hid the pebble Women’s Beach. It is also popular with women who do not want to burden themselves with wearing swimsuits.

The city beach stretches for 2 km, there is a rent of sun loungers, changing rooms, and many water activities, and you can have a snack on the terrace of one of the cafes on the waterfront. We recommend renting a kayak or catamaran (from 10 euros*) and exploring the area from the water. The entrance to the sea is smooth and shallow.

Small Perazica Do – this sandy and pebble beach with crystal clear waters is ideal for a relaxing holiday. However, the path to it stretches through the turbulent vegetation along steep stairs.
