Montenegro Beaches

Gradska plaža

Immediately outside Budva old town's fortifications (access is through an arched gateway in the walls) the "town beach" is made up of fine pebbles. On sunny days, several cafes place their tables and sofas directly on the beach, close to the water's edge.

This fine pebble beach off the road to Kotor gives onto turquoise blue water. There are sun beds for hire, several beach bars and, occasionally, live entertainment (the Rolling Stones played here in July 2007). Part of the beach is reserved for nudists.

Kraljicina plaža (Queen’s Beach) and Kraljeva plaža (King’s Beach)

Near Sveti Stefan, these twin beaches lie side by side, each in its own secluded pebble bay. King's Beach is overlooked by the former royal residence and pinewoods, while Queen's Beach is backed by elegant cypresses and olive groves.

Mogren I and Mogren II

A five-minute walk along a narrow coastal path from Budva's old town, these fine pebble beaches lie in two small, sheltered, adjoining, south-facing coves. Both have earned a Blue Flag rating for high environmental standards.

Ostrvo Sveti Nikola (St Nicholas’ Island)

Through high season, regular taxi-boats run from Budva's harbour to this small island. Rising up from the sea at a bizarre angle, this wedge of rock is covered with dense Mediterranean vegetation. Its shoreline offers three sandy beaches and a restaurant.

Slovenska plaža

Close to Budva's old town, Montenegro's best-known and busiest beach is a one-mile long, sand-and-pebble strip equipped with sun beds and umbrellas for rental water sports and beach volley facilities. A string of restaurants, bars, cafes and hotels overlooks the action.
