A popular summer spot on the Budva Riviera, Petrovac is a charming little town wrapped around a cove. The beachfront has a few newer apartment buildings but largely retains the old stone buildings that are quite charming. This is a more relaxing and upmarket holiday spot than other resorts on the coast, with fewer clubs and beach parties; it is a place to come and relax as you take in the beauty of the Adriatic coast.
The beach is nestled in a small bay and stretches for nearly 800 meters from the 16th century Lastva Castle to the other end of the town. Petrovac has a lively promenade which is often said to remind people of towns on the French Riviera. There is plenty to do in the town itself with boutiques and restaurants where you can try out the local cuisine.
If you fancy getting a little more active on the water, paragliding is a favorite in this spot. While history buffs can also explore Roman Mosaics from the fourth century as well as ancient churches and other Roman ruins nearby. The beach town is very popular and has a number of resorts with excellent accommodation including several right on the beach.
When you sit on the beach, you can look into the calm blue waters of the Adriatic Sea framed by the rocky landscape. This is a great beach that offers relaxation, beauty, and a few modern conveniences.
