Lapped by the same crystalline Adriatic waves as Croatia, but as yet, a land less discovered, it’s only a matter of time though before Montenegro’s secret gets out.
"Beloved by skiers in winter and by hikers in summer, Montenegro is a seriously stunning place at any time of year."
This naturally-blessed country of majestic mountains, sandy coves and walled medieval towns, once frequented by movie stars and Europe’s royalty, is a real scene-stealer; its alluring shoreline once again attracting discerning travellers in search of pristine beaches, super-luxe hideaways and serious relaxation. And while you’ll find a bustling scene at coastal Budva, if it’s sophistication you’re after, only the immaculate Sveti Stefan will do. Inland, this tiny country is just as lovely, with cool pine forests, glassy lakes, vertigo-inducing canyons and rugged mountain slopes all within easy reach.
