Where to swim in Montenegro?
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!
The best months to be bathe
Obviously, the most interesting months are between July and September, with average water temperatures between 25 and 26 degrees. The off-season also offers fine temperatures, with an average of 24 degrees in June and 21 degrees in October.
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€.
Si vous souhaitez un panorama différent sur la baie et ses falaises, n’hésitez pas à réserver un tour en bateau, d’environ, 3h qui vous permettra de découvrir plusieurs grottes aux alentours puis vous pourrez vous baigner à l’écart de la foule dans des eaux translucides. Bref un incontournable de notre voyage !
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.
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 Budva and therefore frequented during the tourist season. 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.
Sand beaches, deckchair + parasol 100€ (you can also sunbathe on the free part of the beach)

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!
Pour comparer les prix des locations nous vous conseillons le site RentalCars. Pour vous donner une idée de tarif, en plein mois de juillet, nous avons trouvé une voiture pour 33€ par jour en réservant quelques semaines à l’avance.
Le loueur Alamo proposait le meilleur tarif. Il n’a pas d’agence à l’aéroport, un employé vous attendra à l’arrivée et au départ de votre vol. Notre voiture avait déjà quelques rayures que nous avons bien notées sur le contrat lors de l’état des lieux.
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.
