Tivat is the main international airport but most flight routes are seasonal from low-budget carriers. Traditionally, people fly to Dubrovnik, just across the border in Croatia, where you can now connect to Montenegro’s best hotels by helicopter. Tourism is only really starting here and the roads can be slow during summer. It’s so much more enjoyable to get around by boat. Montenegro is a perfect destination for flying private jet.
Climate & seasons
Montenegro is a summer destination, with the season running from May to early October. July and August are hottest and busiest, although the new hotels are doing a good job at ensuring privacy.
Where to go
Most holidays centre around the northern coast and the spectacular Bay of Kotor. Here you’ll find superyachts lulling in the new harbours at Portonovi and Tivat, plus new five-star hotels like Europe’s first One&Only and a Nikki Beach. There’s also an excellent Chedi at Lustica Bay and the country’s original five-star resort, Aman, on Sveti Stefan island. There is no comparative accommodation inland but it’s easy to do day trips to the mountains and beyond. Montenegro is the hot place to be - coming soon will be new hotels from Oberoi, Janu, Four Seasons, Ritz Carlton and Fairmont.
What to do
Sailing a yacht down the coast has been the adventure of choice for Europe’s new jet-set crowd. But there is a lot more to Montenegro than the spectacular coastline. Kotor and Perast are among the historical highlights. You can ski in winter, horseback ride in the vineyards, raft in Europe’s largest canyon, mountain bike to remote monasteries, and find many other ways to explore with the whole family. And of course, you can also lay back and enjoy the sun besides your pool.
