Pearls of Boka Bay & Budva Riviera

Just as the pearl is precious, so is our tour exciting. This tour is especially attractive for those who like to stay close to the sea and explore the beauties of the Montenegrin coast.


We start our tour with a visiting small town called Perast, the threshold of the most picturesque place in this part of the Mediterranean. Just around the corner, from the main coastal road, nature lovers can enjoy the sights of beautiful Boka Bay. It is located at the foothill of St. Elijah Hill, opposite the narrow chain strait, where the innermost bays of Risan and Kotor converge.

This easternmost shore of Montenegro was the earliest inhabited area in the Boka-bay. Perast is comprised of the main street and small outback with old buildings which give a unique feel of local spirit. Perast is also one of the few places on the planet where you can find a basketball court basically on the surface of the water.

Not far from the shore, in plain sight lie two islets: St. George and Our Lady of the Rocks, each with a beautiful chapel.

As an only artificial island in the Adriatic Sea, the island of  Our Lady of the Rocks is the star of this place. According to legend, the island was made over the centuries by local sailors who kept an ancient oath after finding the icon of Madonna and Child on the reef in the sea in 15 century.

Next to the island which people emerged from the sea, lies another one of completely different nature and destiny. Surrounded by rocky walls and hidden by high cypress canopy, Saint George gives an impression of hiding a secret and as if it does not allow curious eyes to disturb its rather uncanny peace.

After visiting Perast our road leads back to the self-proclaimed capital of Boka Bay - the city of Kotor. Its old town is a medieval place with a history dating from over 1000 years B.C. It is also known as a maze town because of the intertwined streets and small Italian-like piazzas with interesting names and stories throughout. If you get lost, which is not uncommon, look for one of three entrances. The walls inside tell the tales of many nations who came to conquer them. And their presence is still visible in the architecture. Cobblestoned streets, staircases, churches and cathedrals, rustic cafes and restaurants blend in subtle symbiosis hard to resist. Old town Kotor is one of those places which takes through time or transcends to the next spiritual level. Since 1979- the Kotor's old town is on UNESCO’s World Heritage List which makes it one of the most unique towns in the world.
