Sveti Stefan beach in Montenegro

Montenegro’s Best Beaches

Montenegro? For a beach holiday? Really? Yes. Really. Forget the sun searching crowds in Croatia and head to it’s still relatively-under-the-radar neighbour: Montenegro. Due to it’s lack of EU status, many are under the impression that this part of former Yugoslavia remains unsafe, and doesn’t make for a desirable location for lone female travellers. I’m here to loudly debunk that myth and categorically say the opposite: Montenegro is exactly the place to go as a female solo traveller. Beaches and landscapes still largely unspoilt by tourism, friendly residents, a tiny but convenient coastal bus service – pack your bags and go now, before everyone else does in a few years’ time. If you still remain unconvinced, allow the following pictures of my favourite beaches in Montenegro to tempt you further:

LOUISE’S LESSER-KNOWN COVE

Przno beach in Montenegro
Walking around the water’s edge from Rafailovići to Pržno you’ll find this lovely cove with crystal clear waters – jump in!

SVETI STEFAN

Sveti Stefan – one of Montengro’s most famous beaches. Now owned by a luxury hotel, it’s best to gaze from afar and set up camp on a cheaper beach nearby

MILOCER

Milocer – also known as ‘The King’s Beach’ thanks to the ex-palace that remains on the sands

MOGREN

Mogren beach – head through the tunnel away from Budva to this hidden gem

PORTO MONTENEGRO

Porto Montenegro – not a beach, but a Lido, this is the place to see-and-be-seen with a cocktail in hand as you watch the sun go down over the bay

  1. I honestly didn’t realize how beachy Montenegro was! I’ve only seen the popular destination of Kotor in pictures! Guess I’ll need to add this to my bucket list!! It would be nice to get away from crowded beaches like we found in Croatia!

    1. Definitely give it a go – there’s so much more to Montenegro than Kotor (which is beautiful too, though!) I recommend going in June or September when there are even less tourists and great weather! X
