Of Montenegro’s seemingly never-ending chain of picturesque coastal towns, Budva is by far the most popular. Filled to the brim with bars, restaurants and limestone houses, its Old Town is almost as pretty as the one in nearby Kotor, and there’s plenty of fun to be had on the beaches, as well as at the seafront bars which pop up in the summer.

Budva’s focal point is the Old Town – more of a place to stroll and sip coffee than sightsee – though most travellers are here for the beaches, and there are plenty to choose from.
