With its very short coastline a lot of yachts sail right past Montenegro, but after 7 visits over the last 10 years it's still ranks right up there as one of the best places in the Med to spend a weeks holiday.

The walled town of Budva with its mix of traditional restaurants and upmarket bars is a must-see before sailing just 15nm north to the Bay of Kotor (Boka Kotorska). With it's fortified entrance and disused submarine bunkers tunneled into the steep coastline you'll feel like you're sailing back into the past. At the head of the fjord-like bay is Kotor town - quite simply a place like no other with its narrow brick streets, amazing cafes, authentic restaurants and tempting bakeries all sitting under the town wall that climbs 280m up the steep cliffs that form the backdrop to this amazing place. Taking the walk up is best done before lunch!

Other highlights in Montenegro include the towns of Herceg Novi and Tivat, the villages of Morinj and Perast and a trip to see "Our Lady of the Rocks" - a church sitting on a tiny man-made island created over many years in the 1400's by sinking old ships loaded with rocks.
