I was there on a bicycle tour around the Balkans and i really liked to cycle all around the bay all day long.The people are very friendly and the small villages are awesome!If you are travelling by a car or motorhome try to spend sometime at the small camping places around the Kotor bay.

It was just breathtaking. Photos do not do it justice. To truly appreciate the bay, charter a boat to take you out to the sea and back into the bay again.

Highly recommended day trip! The scenery that surrounds Kotor bay is just fantastic. If you drive here suggest to go around the bay rather than taking the ferry crossing (will take app. 30mins). That way you can enjoy the scenery from different angels. You can take the ferry on the way back.

On a cloudy hazy day, our cruise ship sail through the winding Bay of Kotor. There sits the old town of Kotor, at the foot hill of lush black forest mountains. It felt like I’m in a magic fairy land. When we sailed away in the evening, we could see the light of the city wall surrounding the town. It... More

We drove around the bay from Herceg Novi to Kotor via Risan, Perast and Our Lady of the Rocks and took the car ferry back across the water from Lepetane. Surrounded by stunning mountains, it's breathtaking!

Absolutely breath taking port to come into. Did not disappoint, able to get a great view from the top of the walls of the city.

Dramatic setting with beautiful mountains plunging straight down to the sea. The drive around the bay to the old city of Kotor is wonderful.

Went on a cruise here. One of the most picturesque things I've seen, not only the bay but the ship seated in the bay. And the ride out of Kotor went on forever. It's the end of a ria, which was described to me as a fjord that was created by a river rather than a glacier (I haven't looked... More
