Montenegro

Just south of Croatia, Montenegro is a small but immensely beautiful little-discovered European country, with a rich history and a distinctive Venetian influence.  Enjoying a mild climate with over 200 sunny days a year and a 300km long, picturesque Adriatic coastline with wonderfully unspoilt beaches, a dramatic mountainous interior with dramatic river canyons, charming historic Medieval towns and picturesque coastal villages, it is no surprise that Montenegro is fast becoming the new coveted destination among discerning travellers.

There is plenty for all to enjoy, including relaxing on one of Montenegro’s 117 sandy beaches along the Adriatic coast, sailing along the stunning coast, meandering through the Old Towns of Budva, Kotor or Bar, hiking amongst the peaks of Durmitor National Park or rafting down Europe's deepest canyon.  Firmly on your list of places to visit includes UNESCO listed Kotor featuring Venetian architecture, museums, and a 12th century St Triphun Cathedral, as well as the Bay of Kotor, also known as the Boka. The winding fjord-like bay of the Adriatic Sea in southwestern Montenegro is perfect for those who want to relax with a glass of fine wine, while watching the sun go down over the sea.  Tivat is a modern and glamourous area of Montenegro with ritzy promenades, designer stores and gourmet restaurants where you can spot beautiful super yachts in the harbour.

Other places of interest include Perast, a beautiful old town where you can board a taxi boat transfer to the picturesque island, Our Lady of the Rock, and just 20 minutes’ drive inland from the coast you will find Lake Skadar, in its own beautiful national park, which is the largest expanse of water in the Balkans. Another of the four national parks, breathtaking Durmitor, is set along the Tara river canyon which features one of the deepest gorges in Europe and is home to an abundance of flora and fauna, dense forests, and crystal-clear lakes.

Despite the country’s relatively small size, Montenegro has a wide range of culinary offerings and influences resulting in a fascinating fusion of exotic flavours with high quality, fresh, often organic, produce. Along the coast there is a strong emphasis on a healthy, light diet with delicious freshly caught fish and seafood, plenty of olive oil and an abundance of fresh fruits, whereas you’ll find more hearty and wholesome options inland. Plus, the exceptionally fertile lake region is home to the country’s wine production.

"You’ll be following in some very famous royal footsteps when you check in at this iconic hotel - the Queen, Prince Charles and Prince Harry have all enjoyed Half Moon’s legendary Jamaican hospitality."

"With 400 acres to explore, the best way to get around Half Moon is by bike - the pedal-back brakes take a bit of getting used to but they’re great fun once you’ve got the hang of it."

"At 65 years old, Half Moon might be getting on a bit, but she still likes to look her best - the Sugar Mill Restaurant and lobby area were refurbished last year and the soon-to-be-open East Cove will feature two new restaurants, three bars, an adult-only swimming pool, swimming lagoon and much more."
