Located in Boca Kotorska Igalo i Herceg Novi have something special. Specially old town has that charm of old times where you just want to walk all day around and then sit for delicious Mediterranean cousin. Very clear waters with mostly rocky beaches. Igalo is small town next by and it's very famous for healing mud, here there is not many places for swimming since waters are very shallow.

Nice old town with 3 fortresses inside in Boka Kotorska Bay. City is famous for its staircases connecting sea promenade with upper town. Nice old houses and atmosphere.
Only thing missing are beaches, they are small and concrete.

We have just finished our trip in Balkan Peninsula. Herceg Novi is a nice place to visit to spend an afternoon. We parked our car near Kanli Kula Fortress.The parking method in Herceg Novi is very special as the parking meter do not accept any cash or card. Instead, you can either pay by sending SMS or buying the parking card (Parking Karta) at the nearby newspaper kiosk. We were able to locate the newspaper kiosk by asking the locals. The parking fee is Eur 0.5 per hour. That mean if you need parking for 3 hours. You need to purchase 3 parking cards and show it on the windshield.

Car parking is not allowed on the seafront promenade. Unless you have a mobility scooter (I couldn't locate any hire places anywhere on the Montenegrin coast), you have a significant walk back uphill along the winding road, if you are being pushed in a wheelchair or like me rely on sticks/ 4 wheel stroller. As a result we drove to the seafront for a brief glance and then drove back again. There are payable disabled car parking bays (free on Sunday) just outside the old town

The old town of Herceg Novi is a jewell in the crown, perched high above a promenade lined with cafes, bars, restaurants & organised beaches. Much of the old town is built out of beautiful light coloured stone, with pretty houses, courtyards and vistas overlooking lush greenery the entrance to the Bay of Kotor. A large & lively piazza greet you as you walk in from the north & as you ascend the steps & pass through the clock tower, you met by another stunning piazza with a fairytale pretty church and fountain. Narrow laneways & steps leading from this piazza take you up higher fort, with amphitheatre & incredible views or you can follow the narrow cobbled street down towards the sea to another fort, Fort Mare. Full of surprises, narrow cobbled lanes, forts, clock towers, shops, restaurants but unlike Kotor, this feels like a real working town & not completely overrun by tourists.

The old town district of Herceg Novi is surrounded by medieval limestone walls. Narrow cobble streets, tall stone buildings, a fortress overlooking the bay, hidden courtyards, water fountains, clock tower, grand staircase, town square, Savina monastery, St. Jerome's church, the city museum, small cafes, street dining, and family-run shops all invite exploration. The town is much smaller than (nearby) Kotor or Dubrovnik, so it can be explored in a morning or afternoon. It is also much less crowded, which greatly adds to its charm. The upper town offers expansive views over the bay. Descending the streets to the bay-side promenade allows the visitor to swim in the amazingly clear water, enjoy a coffee, admire local artists, eat ice ream or buy souvenirs. Sturdy footwear is advised, as the stone streets and stairs are uneven. The promenade extends to the neighboring town of Igalo, about 2 miles (3km) along an old railroad right-of-way, ideal for walking, jogging, roller blading or bicyling.

We were on a road trip down the baltic coast and Montenegro was our last stop. Going through the boarder control, the guards harrassed my friend and made her get out of the car so they couldlook up her skirt and THEN would give us back our pass ports. The ocean was black and dirty, city did not seem to be kept up with, and only came across 2 helpful nice people. Go to Kotor not Herceg Novi.

This lovely old town is not overwhelmed with tourists and there's also a local market with lovely fresh produce and a wonderful cheese shop! Forget the supermarket visit the real market!

Small but really pleasant place. Enjoyed it especially this Summer, with few people thanks to the Covid-19 restrictions on travelling.

The old town is compact and quiet in October but well worth visiting . The new town is picturesque with a good long promenade. We stayed in iberostar about seven kilometres away on foot. Good water taxi and bus also from there. Get a bus to kotor from bus station. Only four euro. A big walled town worth a trip.
