Lovely drive around the bay, really pretty area with very intriguing fortress on the hill. Plenty of eateries and nice little winding streets. There is a nice fruit market which sells lovely strawberries. Very busy with cars and not a lot of car parking. We parked right at the quayside which was cheap.

We visited the bay of kotor on a day trip to Montenegro. Such a beautiful place. So many beautiful scenes around every corner-particularly the islands within the bay itself. The town of kotor was well restored and more intimate than dubrovnik-possibly a little overcrowded by various cruise liners and day trippers like ourselves but defo worth a look.

We visited the Bay of Kotor while we were in Dubrovnik. We drove about 3 hours to Kotor. The bay had a cruise ship in town and was busy with visitors. Not as enjoyable with all that crowd of people as I expected. The bay was not exactly very memorable, but the old town juxtapositioned with the marina area seemed... More

Animal lovers, if you have tears to shed, prepare to shed them now.. ! So there I am in beautiful Kotor Bay in Montenegro, (yes it is beautiful, gobsmackingly beautiful) when I encounter a little puppy at the house next to the guest house we are staying at. He isn't getting to enjoy living in beautiful Kotor Bay because he is chained... More

We arrived by ship on a foggy morning. We could see mountain cliffs above the fog and hear the increasing echo of the ships fog horn as we inched to our berth. As the sun burnt off the fog an incredibly beautiful sight was revealed. Kotor is a small town, including an ancient walled city, set on a stunning bay... More

Lovely destination. Wonderful hike up to the Monastery. Great trip to the countryside to experience the local prosciutto ham and aged cheese along with the local people! Exciting experience.

My friends and I were visiting Dubronik for a few days and on our last day there, it was raining hard so we've looked at the map and decided in the spur of the moment to rent a car and crossed the border over to Montenegro. It turned out to be one of the most spontaneous and beautiful road trip... More

Lovely lake-like bay of the Adriatic with clear water and scenic surrounding. The peaceful quiet sunrise was a unique personal experience. Highly recommended to drive around the bay once, there some nice settlements around apart from Kotor.

Once in Dubrovnik, if you have the chance, spend a 'one day trip' to Montenegro to see the highlights of this tiny country. Bay of Kotor is beautiful and once there you run around the whole bay by car/bus and enjoy the landscapes, also take a boat to the islands, where you receive historical information from the local guides. After,... More
