Beautiful and huge sea bay. Very gentle seas in what feels like the last stages before the tourist boom really hits this outskirt of Europe. Swimming is amazing, with good snorkelling right off the bay. You can pretty much park for free and climb down for a quick dip. Old Yugoslavia, with a feel of italy, and a mountain back... More

I cruised through the Bay of Kotor from the Adriatic Sea twice to and from the old town of Kotor. The bay itself is an interesting cross between a conventional bay and a northern fjord. It consists of 5 broad bay areas connected by 4 straits, the narrowest of which is the ~1100' wide Verige Strait. Cruising along one will... More

My best advice is don't drive around the bay of Kotor as it's hard to keep your eyes on the road! Imagine the most stunning scenery everytime you turn a corner, that is the Bay of Kotor. We had a transfer from Croatia to Kotor so got a chance to see a vast amount of the coastline. It can be... More

This is a must for anyone to see if you visit montenegro. Beautiful scenery lovely blue waters for swimming in, but don't expect sandy beaches it's a rocky shoreline with lots of pebble beachs. The old town is a must for any one to visit.

Before setting off I googled the words Kotor and Beach. Nothing. The Internet was full of advice about how to get to Budva and other beaches over 25 mins taxi ride away. But no mention of a beach in Kotor. We were stunned to find it not only has a beach. But it's a cracker. It has concrete jettys that... More

Nice place to walk around and up the hill to the church, a bit slippery in the rain. Great little shops and nice folks.

We visited Kotor as part of a cruise and although having visited it once before we didn't fully explore the bay which is fantastic. Seeing it from a cruise ship is undoubtedly the best way to see this fjord landscape BUT there is a fantastic hop on hop off bust service which takes you around the bay and gives you... More
