Kotor is said to be the most picturesque town in Montenegro. Set at the head of a deep fjord-like bay the old town is a jumble of red roofs and elegant towers. Behind are towering limestone hills whilst in front are the calm, green-blue waters of Kotor Bay.

The area in front of the old town is occupied by the marina and quay where huge cruise ships are something of a permanent feature. A little way north of here you will find Kotor beach, a fairly modest strip of shingle and pebbles.

Compared to the beaches of the “Budva Riviera”, Kotor’s little beach is not too impressive. However, it’s all about the location and the backdrop here with great views in all directions. 

Swimming at Kotor Beach is pretty safe given its sheltered location. There is even a large outdoor swimming pool at the southern end of the beach.

There are a couple of kiosks selling snacks on the beach and several eateries located just off the beach.
