Where to swim in Montenegro + map

Montenegro is bordered by a large and beautiful coastline, alternating beaches of white sand or ash and pebble beaches. Most of the beaches are equipped with sunbeds at low prices. Other more isolated and picturesque beaches are less frequented even in the peak tourist season. You are bound to find something you like!

Kotor beach, Kotor

The Bay of Kotor is located in a beautiful natural setting, which offers real postcard landscapes. Good news, some coves are equipped with deckchairs and the water is translucent.

The one next to the old town is perfect for a refreshing swim in a heavenly environment. This is our favorite beach of the stay.

Pebble beach, deckchair + parasol about 5€.

Explore the Bay of Kotor and its caves by boat

If you’d like a different view of the bay and its cliffs, don’t hesitate to book a boat trip, lasting around 3 hours, which will take you through several caves in the vicinity, before taking a dip in the translucent waters away from the crowds. In short, an essential part of our trip!

Murici beach, Lake Shkodra

Small secluded beach, with translucent water, overlooking the beautiful lake Shkodra. The road to get there is narrow, so we advise you to be patient, as it’s a heavenly spot that really deserves some effort.

Pebble beaches

Long beach – Velika plaza , Ulcinj

This beach is 2 km long, and if you go as far away from the town as possible, you’ll come to a less crowded stretch. You will see many kit surfers in the distance who come to enjoy the beautiful waves.

Ashen sand beaches, deckchair + parasol about 5€.

Jaz beach, Budva

Large beach with translucent water, close to the town of Budva and therefore popular with tourists. On the left, facing the beach, you’ll find non-privatized areas.

Pebble beach, deckchair + parasol about 10€, parking 2€.

Valdanos beach, Ulcinj

Pretty cove lined with olive trees, crystal-clear water. The cliffs in the distance offer a delightful setting. Some areas of the beach are not private.

Pebble beach, deckchair + parasol about 6€.

Mogren beach, Budva

This beautiful cove with crystal clear water can be reached from Budva on foot in just a few minutes.

It is also very busy. In high season, we advise you to go at the end of the day, when the crowds thin out and you can enjoy the sunset over the town of Budva.

Pebble beach, deckchair + parasol about 10€.

Sveti Stefan, Budva

This almost island is a must see for its incredible panorama. It should be noted that a good part of the island is privatized by the hotels. Take your time to snap a few photos, then take a dip in the clear water.

Practical information (flight + travel)

How to get to Montenegro (by plane)?

The international airport is located in Podgorica (the capital).

We recommend the Skyscanner website, which we usually use, to compare prices of different airlines and find your flight at the best price. From France, you can find flights from 90€.

How do you get around (by car)?

For more freedom, we opted for a rental car that we picked up and dropped off at the airport in Podgorica.

There are no highways in Montenegro, you will use the national road or winding mountain roads. This means that short distances can take much longer than expected, averaging 40-50 km per hour. Arm yourself with patience, as this freedom offers unforgettable views!

Our tips for renting your car

To compare rental prices, we recommend the RentalCars website. To give you an idea of prices, in the middle of July, we found a car for 33€ per day by booking a few weeks in advance.

The Alamo rental company offered the best rate. There is no agency at the airport, but an employee will be waiting for you when your flight arrives and departs. Our car already had a few scratches, which we noted on the contract when we inspected it.

Have a nice trip to the Balkans! Feel free to leave us a quick note or 5 stars below, to tell us if you’re planning this trip, to ask any questions you may have, here or on Instagram, we’ll get back to you with great pleasure.
