The Bay of Boka Kotorska

No matter whether you enter Boka by land or by sea – your experience will be the same – Boka will fascinate you!

It looks as if the mountains have cracked and let the sea in. This is the southernmost fjord in Europe. The high mountains bend over the thin coastline thus protecting it from the severe climate from the north.

That is why Boka is an oasis of Mediterranean vegetation: agave, palm, mimosa, oleander, kiwi, pomegranate, medicinal herbs. When its peaks are covered with snow, the roses bloom in the foothills.

Blue Cave Boat Tour

Famous for the iridescent blue that’s reflected throughout the cave, the Blue Cave is one of Montenegro’s most popular attractions. The Blue Cave on Lustica Peninsula is one of the must-see attractions while you’re on the coast. We also take all our visiting friends and family out there and it never fails to impress.

The cave is the largest of many caves both above and under the water on Lustica Peninsula. We’ve spent untold hours in summer exploring the little nooks and crannies of Lustica Peninsula. In the past we’ve found a tiny hidden beach that you can only get to by swimming through a cave. There are also underwater cave systems here than you can explore on diving trips.
