The coastal area around Budva is the centre of Montenegro ‘s tourism, and is well known for its sandy beaches, diverse nightlife, and beautiful examples of Mediterranean architecture. Budva is one of the oldest settlements on the coast of the Adriatic sea and its coastline is the purest part of the Mediterranean.
Budva is the capital of Montenegrin tourism. With over 350,000 guests in the summer season, it is by far the most popular tourist destination in Montenegro.
Because of its 11,310 m of sandy beaches in and around Budva, and its vast cultural heritage, beautiful architecture, and vibrant nightlife, Budva is increasingly attracting foreign tourists. This makes it the most attractive tourist destination in Montenegro.
Due to its nightlife, Budva is popular among young people. They move in crowds from open-air clubs that are lined along the main promenade, and then to closed nightclubs around 01:00am, which are usually crowded until morning. Budva also boasts some of the highest prices of drinks and food in the region.
Budva’s most famous beach is Mogren. Nestled in-between several large cliffs it is accessed by a 500 m pathway from Budva’s Old town. Other beaches within official city limits include Ri?ardova glava (Richard’s Head), Pizana, Slovenska (Slav Beach), Guvance. Many other beaches are located just outside of Budva in smaller adjacent towns and villages such as Be?i?i, Jaz, Trsteno, Maestral, Milo?er, Sveti Stefan, Pržno and Kamenovo.
Outside the old town, Budva does not offer many historical sights. Instead, much of the city consists of new age Mediterranean-style buildings, or private lowrise dwellings. During the turbulent 1990s, Budva grew and expanded without any form of urban planning, which resulted in parts of town featuring narrow streets and numerous cul-de-sacs. This is the reason of major traffic jams during the summer season.
Many other beaches are located just outside of Budva in smaller adjacent towns and villages such as Becici, Jaz, Trsteno, Maestral, Milocer, Sveti Stefan, Pržno and Kamenovo.
