Budva Riviera is a 35 km long part of the Adriatic cooast in Montenegro, spreading over the territory of Budva municipality. It is located in the centre of Montenegrin coastline and also represents the centre of Montenegrin tourism. 12.5 km of gorgeous beaches spread along this Riviera.
In the very heart of this “Riviera of pearly beaches”, as tourists like to call it Budva town is located – “the queen of Montenegrin tourism”. Those who at least once visited Budva know the reason for this name. Apart from Budva, the most important tourism centers of the Riviera are Petrovac, Sveti Stefan, Becici i Rafailovici, Milocer and Przno, Rezevici, but also about forty smaller settlements.
The Riviera is well known for a wondrous blueness of the Adriatic Sea, jagged coastline, Mediterranean climate (warm, long and dry summer and mild and rainy winter) and numerous tourist services. With 270 days of sunshine and a swimming season that lasts from May to October (some would say it never ends), this area attracts tourists from different parts of the world. Only during the summer season, hundreds of thousands of tourists visit Budva Riviera to see its sights, wonderful beaches (such as Kamenovo i Drobni Pijesak) and experience great night life.
When the summer season finishes, Budva Riviera is much quieter and peaceful, but its nature is of the same beauty. Temperatures of the air and the sea can sometimes be very high in the winter period, so don’t be surprised to see people swimming during the festive days of New Year holiday. Foreign tourists especially like to set off towards Cetinje to ski after having a swim in Budva.
M1 (Adriatic) Highway runs along the coastline of Budva and can take you wherever you want. But only after cruising with Montenegro Star boat all sights, “hidden” beaches and islets of (Katic and Sveta Nedjelja (Holly Sunday) or Hawaii islandi) and other beauties of Budva Riviera can be seen!
