So you have already spent a few days in Dubrovnik and you have checked out the Old City, visited the nearby islands, and now you want to explore a different location. You don’t have to go far. The Mediterranean climate, beautiful nature, lovely people and an interesting culture make Montenegro an ideal summer destination.
Have you heard of Porto Montenegro? It’s located only an hour and twenty minutes from Dubrovnik Airport and by the end of this article you won’t be able to find a reason why not to visit this extraordinary destination.
1.) It’s close to Dubrovnik
Why choose between destinations when you can visit both? Isn’t it cool how in less than 2 hours, you can find yourself in a whole new country? We think you should take the best from both worlds; make sure you take in Dubrovnik’s history, tradition and culture, but also explore what Porto Montenegro has to offer; you will be amazed.
2.) The shopping is AMAZING.
If you are a true fashionista, this nautical It-place will sweep you off your feet. Let’s just mention a few names : Celine, Chloe, Givenchy, Saint Laurent, Isabel Marant, Valentino, Emilio Pucci, Lanvin, Thom Browne, Cartier, Chopard, Cutler&Gross, Victoria Beckham… Had enough? Well, there’s actually so much more. This luxury shopping location goes hand in hand with places like Monaco and Capri.
3.)The nature nearby is just wonderful.
Great climate offers more than 150 sunny days a year! The calm Adriatic sea and islands like Saint George and Our Lady of Rocks will blow your mind with their beauty and history. If you decide to visit Bay Of Kotor, make sure you check out Montenegro Bay Of Kotor Tour From Dubrovnik.
If you’re a hedonist, you will most definitely enjoy delicious mediterranean food, but Porto Montenegro offers so much more than authentic cuisine. Let’s mention “Al Posto Giusto” where you can design your own menu for a special occasion and experience the essence of the Italian food. If you are looking for something really special, look for “One” where you can enjoy the most expensive view in the whole country with a glass of champagne. Since we love exotic food, let’s not forget “Mitsu” where you can taste the best sushi in whole Montenegro and “Byblos” that offers a new dimension of gastronomic experience – zetty mezze made by great Lebanese chefs. We are already hungry, how about you?
5.) It makes you feel like a jet-setter.
The sun and the sea, all those fancy restaurants, luxury shops, beautiful yachts and boats in the marina make you feel like you are living the rich and famous lifestyle, even if you’re not. And you always feel welcome because people are super nice! Even the daytime restaurant located at the bottom of the Porto Montenegro Yacht Club’s breathtaking pool is open for the general public. How cool is that?
6.) It has everything you need
This place is one of the most vibrant marinas in the Adriatic and the village offers everything ; restaurants, shops, museum, Knightsbridge school, lively bars, Sports Club, Yacht club and of course excellent Regent Hotel that comprises a wonderful mix of hotel rooms and private residences, all designed by Tino Zervudachi.
