The coastal area of Montenegro is comprised of six municipalities: Herceg Novi, Tivat, Kotor, Budva, Bar and Ulcinj. It has 293 km of coastline boasting 117 beaches that stretch 73 km altogether. The longest beach is the Velika plaza (Large beach) in Ulcinj;the largest bay is Boka Kotorska Bay, which, due to its layout and precipitous mountain slopes descending to the sea, resembles a fjord. This magnificent Riviera, with old medieval towns, coastal places, beaches, bays, peninsulas, headlands and cosy coves one after the other, is characterised by features unfailingly stored in the minds of visitors for a long time, with a desire to return to it and relish its charms again.
