Jaz, Budva is a camper's delight. Nestled under hills and shaded by trees, Jaz Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in the area and is surrounded by thick, untouched vegetation. The beach itself is covered with small pebbles, which make it less messy than sand, but when you walk into the clear blue water, you find soft sand that crunches between your toes. Because the beach is long, it feels less crowded than other beaches in Montenegro.
Velika Plaza and Ada Bojana, Ulcinj have incredible dark sands that are purported to have healing powers. Writers, actors, and bohemians come to Velika to feel the beach's sense of serenity and peace. The water is quite shallow here, so it can be challenging to swim, but little kids love the warm waters, and (kite)surfers come here for adventure. Enjoy a romantic sunset at the beach? Whatever you do, don't miss the fabulous sunsets that are spectacular on this best beach.
Take time out to visit Ada Bojana, just adjacent to Velika. This beach is a nudist's happy place and located along Paradise Island. Surfers will be happy to know that Ada Bojana is known for its fresh winds that merge with the hot summer air, and the area is one of the best surfing areas in Montenegro. Ada Bojana is different from the rest of Montenegro's beaches – it is bordered on two sides by the Bojana River. Don't worry – if you are not a naturist and a bit more modest, there are restaurants at the northern end of the beach.
Mogren, Budva is two beaches that you visit via a tunnel. The beaches have high environmental standards, and the locals celebrate the water as naturally pure. Take the steep walk down from Old Town Budva to the beaches to see the views of the old town and the endless horizon. The beach is somewhat secluded, and the pebbles on its beach are unusual. Limestone cliffs surround the beach and more adventurous tourists try their skills at hiking up the cliffs. Do note that Mogren Beach is one of the most popular beaches in Montenegro and maybe a bit crowded, especially in the high season.
Ploce is a beach with a tremendous number of upgrades. Four pools are filled with warm, blue seawater daily, cabins for showering, restaurants, cafes, and rescue services are available. Trained masseuses wonder about the beach, and there are tons of activities for families with children. The best part? You can see through the water to the bottom of the beach and find shells and pebbles of all colors and shapes.
Trsteno is an informal sandy beach that not attached to civilization, but it is easy to access. It is perfect if you have small children since there is a good area of turquoise and shallow waters, and a pale white sand beach that glorious. Take advantage of the restaurant, sunbeds, and plenty of parking, but get there early since crowds can be a problem in this small portion of heaven.
Kamenovo Beach is reached either by road or a pedestrian walkway that travels through a tunnel. The golden sand beach accents the turquoise colored water. Kamenovo is unique because the angle of the sun above this beach can change the water color from turquoise to azure. Watching the shift in colors is spectacular. Make your holiday perfect by taking advantage of the daily parties and numerous restaurants along the beach. Younger people love this beach, but those who are older will find a great deal of love here, too. Look for the wild botanical garden that is left over from a derelict socialist era workers resort and watch the yachts moor off the shore.
Buljarica Beach, Petrovac is one of the most extensive beaches on Montenegro's coast and is one of the last of the untouched beaches in the country, locals call it the paradise beach.
