Bay of Kotor

The bay of Kotor is about 30 km long and consists of 4 single basins, which are connected by spectacular straits between the towering mountain flanks. It is also known as the southernmost fjord in Europe. It is advisable to book accommodation outside the towns, as these usually offer a private jetty or beach. From there you can take excursions to

nearby towns and sights, by car, rental car or the well connected bus network.

The private hotel Villa PM (Dobrota 280a, 85330 Kotor) between Kotor and Perast is a real insider tip and absolutely recommendable.

Perast

The small fishing village Perast is one of the most beautiful places in Boca Bay, located just a few km from Kotor this tiny town boasts 16 churches and 17 formerly grand palazzos. The most famous and spectacular landmarks are actually the two picturesque islands with the famous church Gospa od skrpelja on it.

Tivat

The youngest city in the bay of Kotor has an airport and a huge marina, which can be recognized immediately by the very well-kept city centre and the well-heeled guests. For a day trip it is nevertheless worthwhile, even if one arrives without a yacht.

Visit the mussel farm Skoljle Boke (Orahovac 38), taste the delicious different mussels directly from the sea, the homemade white wine and let the talkative owner show you the cultivation methods.

Budva

If one comes from the dreamy and quiet bay of Kotor, the city appears loud, full and touristic. But at a second glance it offers not only the old town in Venetian style and the many possibilities for eating and going out but also the proximity to many sights and is therefore a good place to stay.

Sveti Stefan

The peninsula Sveti Stefan 10 KM south of Budva is a beauty surrounded by wild bays and white beaches. On the peninsula itself are hotels and private houses, only those who have accommodation are allowed on the island. Nevertheless, a day trip for bathing and walking along this magical scenery is a must.
