Things to Do
AquaPark Budva: If you have kids or are a kid at heart, a day here away from salty water can be good for you!
Beaches: Budva has beatiful beaches. You can hand out around the marina, or check out Jaz Beach (beautiful blue water, camping, and nightlife), Morgren Beach (super secluded), or Ploce Beach (one of the most popular, but so, so pretty!).
Boat tours: If you want to explore beaches outside of the marina, walk around the water area to choose a taxi boat tour that can take you around to different beaches. It's a fun way to explore and see a lot of different areas!
Head to Hawaii: A short water taxi away, you can lounge around, swim, and dine.
Paragliding: We went with Paragliding Montenegro and they were amazing! You have beautiful views of the mountains, all of Budva, and the water.
Sveti Stefan: Tour around this fortified village which also contains luxury hotels and spas.
Watersports: Rent jet skis, go fly boarding, tube behind a boat, parasailing, and so much more!
Walk around Budva Old Town!
Places to Eat
Bahche: Turkish food in old town.
Jadran: Some of the best seafood in town.
Juice Bar: Great place for a quick bite, juices, or coffee.
Places to Drink
Paris: huge nightclub with a mock Eiffel Tower.
Torch Beach Club: Grab a table and some friends, and swim in the pool with a great view of the ocean.
Top Hill: MASSIVE night club, you guessed it, on top of a hill. They'll often have DJs, so expect to pay for your entry.
There's a strip of nightclubs in Budva - you'll be able to see the flashing lights and hear the music. Montenegro is big on table bookings, so maybe choose one and book a table that day. You can also wander around old town and pop into bars or join outside patios! You won't be bored.
Places to Stay
Airbnb provides great options.
Tips and Recommendations
Montenegro has a tourist tax that states all tourists must register with the office and pay the fee (about a euro a day) within 24 hours of entering the country. Most hostels or hotels do this automatically, and when staying in an airbnb, your host will typically take you to the office. However, this proves difficult if you're camping or staying on a boat, as you need a substantial amount of information on the charter company, the passports of your captain and guests, and more. We were very stressed at the chance of getting fined 300 euro upon leaving Kotor, however, at the airport were never met with any question to provide our pink slip. Do your best to register with the tourist office and pay the tax if it is not done for you, however, if you have issues, we would not worry too much about it. Many people are not even aware of the tourist tax.
