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 an average water temperature of 25 to 26 degrees. The off-season also offers beautiful 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€.
If you want a different view of the bay and its cliffs, don’t hesitate to book a boat tour of about 3 hours which will take you to several caves in the area and then you can swim away from the crowds in the translucent waters. In short, a must-see on our trip!
Murici beach, Lake Shkodra
Small secluded beach, with translucent water, overlooking the beautiful lake Shkodra. The road to get there is narrow, we advise you to be patient because it is a heavenly place that really deserves some efforts.
Long beach – Velika plaza , Ulcinj
This beach is 2km long, by moving away from the city you will arrive on a less frequented portion. You will see many kit surfers in the distance who come to enjoy the beautiful waves.

How to get to Montenegro (by plane)?
The international airport is located in Podgorica (the capital).
Depuis la France, vous pouvez trouver des vols à partir de 90€.
Nous vous conseillons le site Skyscanner, que nous utilisons généralement, pour comparer les prix des différentes compagnies aériennes et trouver votre vol au meilleur prix.
How to 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. So short distances can take much longer than expected, you will be driving on average 40-50 km per hour. Be patient, this freedom will offer you unforgettable views!
To compare the prices of rentals 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. They don’t have a branch at the airport, an employee will be waiting for you when your flight arrives and leaves. Our car already had a few scratches which we noted on the contract when we checked the car.
Enjoy your trip to the Balkans! Don’t hesitate to leave us a note below to tell us if you are planning this trip, or to ask any questions you may have, we will answer you with great pleasure.
