Montenegro has a Mediterranean climate near the coast and alpine mountains. In the summer, the average coastal temperature is in the 80’s. Inland temps are cooler, usually in the 50’s.
Montenegrin nightclubs are incredibly popular, particularly with tourists. Clubs are crowded and rarely follow Western fire safety standards.
Violent crime is uncommon, but resident break ins do occur. Travelers should avoid leaving their possessions unattended. All travelers should exercise caution and be aware of their surroundings while traveling. Further, theft at ATMs does also occur. Guard your pin numbers when using them and ensure that there is nothing attached to the ATM.
Plava špilja, the Blue Cave, is one of Montenegro’s most well-known spots on the coast. There are many marvelous tours than can take you on a well-guided and instructional tour of the coast. You’ll push your kayak into warm waters and learn how to steer and paddle. Following your lesson, you can head to the Adriatic Sea and paddle to the coast of the Blue Cave. The Blue Cave is the largest of several natural excavations that can only be accessed by kayak. It gets its name from the changing colors of the water. It seems light blue in the morning, dark blue around noon, and again light blue before sunset.
After exploring the caves, you can either swim around in the blue waters or snorkel and explore the rocks and ocean life. If you are hungry or thirsty after a day in the sun there are plenty of local snack stands for you to choose from and enjoy. This is the perfect mix of a relaxing, yet exploratory, excursion for a vacation.
