The stunning and unspoilt coastline of Montenegro is so much more than just a place to swim and sunbathe. Granted, we do love a spot of R n R, but the activities on offer are endless and a reason for why up and coming Montenegro just keeps on going up.
The rugged coastline, lofty mountains and dramatic fjords provide a playground for the adventure seeker. An obvious start is the abundance of watersports, from waterskiing, canoeing, and kayaking on Lake Skadar to chartering a boat for the day to explore the nearby islands. For those who would rather have a skipper than be one, private sailing boats do day trips around the island - head for Perast and enjoy multiple swimming stops along the way, before returning via the stunning hidden coves that only the locals know.
Adrenaline junkies can go mountain biking and paragliding along the coast, or head inland for rafting in one of the world's deepest canyons, Tara Canyon. Located in Durmitor National Park, it is certainly off the coastal track yet the area is also fantastic for hiking and horse riding. We also highly recommend a trip to Lovcen National Park for its excellent hiking.
Scuba diving is also very popular in Montenegro and a great place to learn. Both beginners and advanced PADI courses are available in the stunning Bay of Kotor.
