Balkan beauty

With great beaches, forest-cloaked mountains and mirror-like lakes, Montenegro is certainly easy on the eye. But natural beauty isn’t all the country has got going for it. You’ll also find friendly locals, centuries-old sights and resorts that are completely geared up for holidaymakers.

Budva Riviera

The town of Budva is the main resort on the country’s Budva Riviera. It’s a lively place with a handful of first-class beaches to pick from. The old town is characterised by Venetian houses, bell towers and shady piazzas, while the newer part of the city houses swish boutiques and pavement cafés.


A few kilometres down the road is Becici, a modern town with a spectacular sandy beach and a backdrop of pine-cloaked hills. At the far end of the promenade you’ll find quirky shops and al fresco cafés in the old fishing village.


Further south is Petrovac. It’s sleepier than its neighbours, so it’s a great choice if you want to turn the tempo down a few notches. The beach is the big attraction here – it’s a sandy number set in a horseshoe-shaped bay.
