Rugged Adriatic Coast, ancient port cities and the sheltered waters of the Bay of Kotor make Montenegro a dreamy place for an eight-day sailing adventure. While neighbouring Croatia has long been a marine travel hotspot, Montenegro remains something of a hidden sailing gem. Spend several days exploring both the popular and the little-seen treasures of the Bay of Kotor and the Montenegro Coast, lounging in a striped beach chair among the beautiful people of Budvar one day, and slurping fish chorba at a tiny local restaurant in the village of Bigovo the next. This limited season sailing tour is the ideal way to explore this Balkan beauty.
