Once overlooked in favour of its well-known neighbours, this tiny Balkan country has found a perfect balance where quiet villages and centuries-old architecture meet luxury hotels, bars and restaurants. Sailing through azure waters on a Montenegro yacht charter, it is easy to see why the coastline has inspired poets. Forest covered mountains give way to rocky cliffs, with sleepy villages nestled against sheer rock faces. A luxury yacht charter to Montenegro is the ideal way to explore the coastline – in the summer months Porto Montenegro becomes a beautiful sight, full of shining yachts set against rocky coast. This is a destination for the discerning traveller – with all the glamour that you would expect from a luxury yacht vacation, along with rich history, stunning national parks and excellent food.
Key Cruising Areas: The Bay of Kotor is often referred to as the southernmost fjord, due to its green cliffs rising up from clear blue waters. Cruise along beautiful rocky coastlines out to the Lustica Peninsula then take your tender to Blue Grotto, where the water appears iridescent as it reflects off the sand.
Don’t Miss: Housing the remains of Saint Basil of Ostrog, and dating back to the 17th century, the Ostrog Monastery is a cultural highlight and its construction into a vertical rock face is an incredible feat of architecture!
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: The landscape of Montenegro is dotted with windmills, and the setting of Catovica Mlini in an old mill gives it a particular charm. Inland from Kotor this fish restaurant is worth the drive – excellent food in stunning grounds will mean what starts as a leisurely lunch could fill a whole afternoon.
Local Culture: King Nikola was a keen yachtsman himself, and his palace is now part of the National Museum of Montenegro that contains interesting artefacts of Montenegrin history, along with impressive royal gardens.
Best Beach: The curved pink beaches of Aman Sveti Stefan are not to be missed. With immaculate luxury resorts and lush, exotic botanical gardens, this area is the most photographed spot in Montenegro and was once the summer residence of Queen Marija Karađorđević.
IYC recommends: Sail through the impressive Bay of Kotor to explore the medieval walled town of Budva. Take in the history then while away the afternoon amongst locals in one of the waterfront cafés before returning to relax on your yacht.
