montenegro sailing route

Montenegro is a much talked about new holiday destination and it’s easy to understand why, but the coastline is very different to that of Croatia.  It’s significantly more rugged and vertical.

This means that if shelter is required for mooring, those little bays in the lee of the island you are used to off the Dalmatian coast are less numerous.  Therefore, we recommend a ‘twin destination’ sailing holiday which allows enough time for you to visit Montenegro and the southern islands of Croatia, disembarking in Dubrovnik.

Cavtat and Kotor are a must to visit with good restaurants.  Sailing south for a further 5 hours, the towns of San Stefan, Budva and Ulcinj are all outstanding places to visit with lovely beaches.

You embark your boat in Dubrovnik and set sail south immediately passing Cavtat, Herceg Novi, and Budva to arrive and spend the second night in Kotor (pictured above). On you return to Croatia, you will be stopping at Mljet, a beautiful island that has the famous and stunningly beautiful National Park and, Peljesac, one of the wine growing regions of Croatia. Sailing further north, you will visit Lastovo, recently proclaimed as a national park and Korcula, the reputed birthplace of Marco Polo.

For the more sporty and energetic, your boat can be arranged to cater for water skiing, jet skiing, dough-nutting, kayaking, snorkelling and windsurfing.

A special license is required to sail from Croatia to Montenegro and not all Croatian flagged boats carry that license.  We will, of course, advise on this and everything else required for an unforgettable holiday. We have over 20 exceptional gulets, ketches, sailing boats and motor vessels for you to choose from.  So, whatever the size of your party and whatever you wish your itinerary to include, we can organise it for you.

Our expert local team has many years of experience chartering vessels for clients and can arrange everything you and your guests could possibly need.

Why not combine your sailing holiday with a few nights at Aman’s Sveti Stefan in Montenegro?
