With a name that means “Black Mountain,” Montenegro is a captivating Mediterranean yacht vacation destination that bursts with color, culture, and scenes. Its appeal skyrocketed recently when it was included in the list of must-visit countries in 2016. In fact, the coastal town of Kotor made it as the top city among the must-visit places in the entire world.
Facing the calm and romantic Adriatic Sea, the coastal cities of Kotor and Budva are revered as the starting locations for Montenegro yacht charters or even Croatia yacht charters, which can serve as a segue to Montenegro or vice versa. Some may even add Venice to the itinerary for a holistic yachting respite. Guests should also not miss the distinct charm of Sveti Stefan, which is a small island city just a few kilometers from Budva and has recently been labeled as the “Monaco of the Adriatic” by UNESCO.
Primarily focused on tourism and water activities, such as cruising and yachting, Montenegro showcases a great yet understated perfection, especially if you want to have a truly unique yachting holiday. The Montenegrin location allows it to absorb the surrounding history aside from its homegrown culture. The overall ambiance is very relaxing and very laidback; some refer to the scenery as the epitome of unhurried and carefree pace of life, which paves the way to truly memorable summer yachting moments while slowly drifting somewhere in the Adriatic Sea. The warm yet relatively mild weather completes the genuine Mediterranean summer escape that only the likes of Montenegro can offer.
How its charm has been eclipsed by the more mainstream yachting destinations gave way to more romantic and truly intimate yachting vacation ideas and itineraries. Montenegro is one of the smallest countries in Europe, but it does not run out of ways to entertain and please the guests who wish to visit.
