"When the pearls of nature were sown, on this soil an overflowing handful was gathered. The most beautiful contact between the earth and sea occurred at the Montenegrin littoral." – George Gordon Byron.
Lord Byron perfectly described the jaw-dropping scenery you can encounter in a must-see Boka Bay. Throughout its rich history, Boka has served as a melting pot where various Western and Eastern civilizations have left their mark – from the Illyrians to the Romans, the Ottomans, and the Venetians – the influences are everywhere, inviting you to discover their stories and secrets.
Beautiful scenic escapes have attracted even the most famous Hollywood icons like Elizabeth Taylor and Sophia Loren, who loved to vacation here during the 1970s; Madonna, the Beckhams, and then-couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie also journeyed here.
Today, Montenegro is among the top destinations worldwide, frequently dubbed the "Monte Carlo of the Adriatic," quickly drawing in high-class visitors from various sides of the world craving authenticity, locality, and that lost sense of childhood innocence.
Summer months are popular, but you can also explore sights during spring and autumn when the temperatures are mild, but it's still pleasant enough to explore the sights.
One-day Trips You Can Make on Your Own
In the Boka Bay area, you will find small villages and coastal historical attractions with authentic local food and residents with whom you'll bond quickly over a shot of rakija or other local beverages.
The bay is divided into four smaller bays - Herceg Novi Bay, Risan Bay, Kotor Bay, and Tivat Bay each of which boasts small, centuries-old towns. With its picturesque streets, Herceg Novi will only slightly remind you of the former fishing village it used to be during the Roman Empire times. After walking the streets and admiring the arts & crafts, enjoy a glass of homemade wine at Castel Savina. Another quaint town, Perast, is 20 minutes away from Kotor and hosts one of the prettiest bays in the world and a charming Our Lady of the Rocks Island – a man-made island right in the middle of the bay. The perfect backdrop for Instagram photos! If you go further, you will reach Budva and Sveti Stefan, famous towns renowned for their atmosphere and luxurious restaurants. Be sure to make memories!
