Nearly 300km long, its stunning Adriatic coastline is sprinkled with historic towns, lively beach resorts, secluded coves and beautiful white-stone fishing villages. The remote, often inhospitable interior, meanwhile, displays an outstanding array of snow-dusted peaks, crystal clear lakes and rivers, deep forests and canyons. The whole adds up to a diverse landscape that is extraordinary for such a small country.

Extending from the southern tip of Croatia down to the border with Albania, the Montenegrin coast is the country’s real jewel. Blessed with abundant sunshine, warm water and endless strips of sandy and pebble beaches, this startlingly beautiful coastline packs in some of the most striking scenery of the entire Adriatic.
