The Montenegrin coast is 293 km long. If you set out on a journey from Herceg Novi to Ulcinj you will find more than 117 beaches. From the tiny platforms which can be found right next to the road, indented undiscovered bays, concrete-covered beaches, to long sandy sea oases…
You will find out whether sun, salt and wind are enough for happiness when you go to Ada Bojana – an island in the embrace of river and sea. It is located 15 km from Ulcinj and is a magnet for true nature lovers. The Bojana is the only river in the world which sometimes also flows upstream, which explains this place’s strange energy. It is unimportant whether you sleep in a tent, camp, improvised cabin or fisherman’s dwelling, your breathing unnoticeably catches the rhythm of nature. Here the country’s largest nudist settlement is located. Whether you are a nudist or not, you will acknowledge that there is no better place to practise naturist principles than Ada Bojana.
All beaches in Montenegro are beautiful, but Ulcinj’s Large Beach is something else. They still call it “another dimension”. The fine sand, which cannot be found anywhere else on the Adriatic, is rich in minerals and very curative. On the largest beach on the Adriatic you can meditate, walk along the endless shallows, ride a horse, play volleyball on the sand, go kite surfing, watch meteorite showers and the prettiest sunset in the world.
Close to Ulcinj you can find the curative, rocky nudist beach which, it is believed, due to the concentration of hydrogen sulphide, has a positive effect on the female reproductive system. For this reason, this beach is visited solely by females who enjoy the shade of the pine forest and the mystique of a cave which makes it additionally intriguing.
