the Mogren Beach

We had to start with beach just around corner. It is comprised of two smaller sandy beaches connected by a tunnel. There is the Spas hill in the hinterland, with lush Mediterranean vegetation, whose scent gently descends onto the beach with its crystal clear water. It is located 300 metres from the Old Town, and can be reached by a concrete pedestrian pathway. It was named after the Spanish mariner,Mogrini, who was, according to oral tradition, washed ashore there after a shipwreck. To express his gratitude, he built a church dedicated to St Anton on theMogren beach. It faces south and is protected from the northern, eastern and western winds, bathed in sunlight from the early morning hours, while the sunset comes earlier. It is one of the most attractive and most exclusive beaches of the Adriatic coast. The beach is 350 metres long and covers an area of 4,500 square metres.

The island of Sveti Nikola

The largest island of the southern part of the Adriatic, which is known as Skolj among the locals, is less than a kilometre away from Budva and has three sandy beaches. Tourists from Budva and the surrounding beaches come to the island by boat from port. The small beaches on the south side of the island, situated under the cliffs, can only be reached by small boats. The island is covered in Mediterranean vegetation, has many secluded coves, which generally makes it attractive for excursions, young, and not so young, couples and adventurers. The beautiful sunsets here create the feel of distant exotic places. There can be founddeer, badgers, rabbits and several species of birds on the island, which is also a hunting reserve. The beaches are 840 metres long in total, and they cover an area of 2,700 square metres.


The Pizana beach is located alongside the Old Town, under the town tower of Repeno. It is pebbly and 50 metres long and what makes it attractive is the atmosphere created by the Old Town walls and the view of the island of Sveti Nikola. Right next to it, there are the town’s outdoor swimming pool, the Budva marina and a restaurant.


It is located in front of the typical coastal hamlet sharing the same name, which used to be a fishing village. It is sandy and partially rocky. The beach faces the west, and is illuminated by the sun until sunset, which is the reason why many swimmers come to this beach. There are olive groves in the background, while tourist accommodations with high-category rooms and suites for rent areright along the beach. There are also many restaurants and the hotel “Maestral” is located here. The beach is 260 metres long and covers an area of 4,300 square metres.

The Milocer beach (Kraljeva plaza – King’s Beach)

Around the “Milocer” Hotel, built 80 years ago as a summer resort of the Yugoslav dynasty, and communist leader Tito, for decades a garden of exotic trees and flowers has emerged, a green-flowered oasis in the heart of the exclusive Sveti Stefan (Saint Stephen’s)-Miločer tourist zone. Lebanon’s cedar, eucalyptus, tropical mimosa, Japanese medlar, cactus, agave, pithospora… with local Mediterranean plants and flowers, have been a must-see for tourists and tourists from all over the world for decades.
