Tivat - Montenegro Tourist sites in Tivat area


Przno Beach (Plavi Horizont -The Blue Horizon). Facing the open sea, in Traste Cove, an almost surreal bay, there is a beach and a resort with the same name - Plavi Horizont. The position and the natural conditions, a wide belt of fine, healing sand, framed by lush pine and olive trees and a long shallow embrace with the sea, make this one of the most beautiful beaches on the whole Adriatic. The crystal-clear sea, the four-kilometre long promenades around the bay, with intimate spots to rest and easily accessible natural inlets offering the feeling of unconstrained touch and link with nature, and full services provided on the beach.
Prevlaka (Ostrvo cvijeca - The Island of Flowers). This is a small oval-shaped island, some 300 m long. It used to be connected to the mainland by a narrow and low natural strip of land that used to be flooded at high tide and thus Prevlaka was both an island and a peninsula.
What make this island attractive historically speaking are the remnants of the Holy Archangel Michael's Monastery, which are still being excavated.
The name Island of Flowers was given to the island due to its lush vegetation and abundance of diverse flowers, alongside the olive trees, palms and other Mediterranean plants and bushes, planted at the time when this island was a tourist resort.
St Marko's Island (Stradioti). This is located to the west of the Island of Flowers. The name Stradioti comes from the Venetian times when it used to house an army camp for soldiers of Greek origin (stradiotes - a soldier). It used to have the attractive tourist settlement "Sveti Marko", and was one of the best in the Club Mediterrane chain from Paris.Today there are no tourist facilities here, but it is an interesting excursion site accessible by tourist boats.

Gornja Lastva. Further away from the sea, in the quiet of olive groves, there lies the village of Gornja Lastva offering visitors the lovely ambience of old stone houses commanding a view over Tivat Bay.
It is located in the Tivat hinterland, on the slopes of Vrmac Hill at an altitude of 300 m above sea level. This village was first mentioned in the 14th century in the Statute ofKotor, as a part of the Kotor districts. It is one of the rare living communities on the slopes of Vrmac. Some twenty stone houses are imposing in their simplicity.
