Walking distance To Mogren-1 from the center of Budva – up to 1.5 km, the passage to Mogren-2 – through the tunnel.

Budva, like the rest of Montenegro, is famous for its beaches on the Adriatic Sea.

The temperature of the water and the air in the season remains at a comfortable 27 degrees above zero.

Two beaches, connected by a small cape on the south-west coast of Budva have the same name – Mogren. Due to the lack of hotels in the area of the beach Mogren distinguishes itself from the other beaches of Budva with its cleanliness and grooming. Many travelers consider it the best beach in this city.

The beach bay closer to the center of the city is Mogren-1, the next one, hidden by a rock is Mogren-2. Both beaches are very popular not only with locals, but also with tourists who come here for the summer.

Mogren beach has its own peculiarity. It is neither sandy, nor pebbly. It is something in between – either very small pebbles or very coarse sand. The beach attracts visitors with its stunningly beautiful nature. Its bays are formed by powerful rocks, where the centuries-old rock is deposited in layers. The tops of the cliffs are buried in greenery and protect the beach from any prying eyes. On all sides surrounded by mountains, and far into the sea you can see the old town and the island of St. Nicholas.

The sea here is transparent, with an unusual emerald-green hue, and among the stones it is easy to find a sea urchin or a crab, and it always says something about the purity of the water.

The beach strip of Mogren is relatively small. The first part (Mogren-1) is about 200 meters of shoreline, the second (Mogren-2) is just under 150 meters. The rock between them does not belong to this system of beaches, it is often used by nudists for recreation.

There is a thoroughfare in the rock that connects the beaches, so that the tourists can easily go from one beach to another without even getting their feet wet. This is helped by a small wooden bridge, where, by the way, get great pictures.

The beach offers deck chairs, sun umbrellas, toilets and showers with fresh water, cabins, where you can change your clothes. There is a massage salon, stores, cafes and restaurants. For those who love adrenaline here is a lot of opportunities. For example, you can become a beginner wakeboarder, ride a jet ski, scooter or catamaran, soar into the air on a parasail, go sailing.

Please note: toilets on the beach are charged at 0.5 euros.

The difference between the beaches of Mogren 1 and Mogren 2

The first beach, according to tourists, more modern and civilized, the main infrastructure is concentrated here. Vacationers are located in the lounge chairs. The sea bottom is more gentle.

The second beach is more focused on a free, “wild” rest. It is more suitable for those who do not like unnecessary costs and conventions, and is happy to sunbathe on a beach towel.

During the high season both beaches are popular and it can be difficult to find a free place to relax. Therefore experienced tourists warn: come to the beach in the early morning or close to 7 pm, when the bulk of holidaymakers have already dispersed.

Anyone can get to both beaches. The cost of renting a deck chair with umbrella is about 15-20 euros per day on the second line from the water and beyond. Sun loungers with umbrellas by the water will cost you 30 euros per day for two people. Prices may change at different times of the season. When you rent a place, be sure to let them know if you’re going to go away for a while and come back.

The entrance to the sea will please both adults and children. The coast here is shallow, which allows kids and those who are not very confident in the water, stay in shallow water. On the other hand, the depth increases pretty fast, which allows those who prefer big water to dive and swim.

Safety in Mogrena is provided by a team of lifeguards. Their work, as well as the overall quality of beach holidays here has repeatedly been confirmed by the “Blue Flag” – a well-known award in this field.

Duration of the high season on the beaches of Mogren is about four months – from May to September, and all this time it is very crowded.

In their reviews, tourists who have been here note that the prices on the beach are slightly higher than on other beaches in Budva, such as Slavic Beach.

How to get to Mogren beach

The beach can be reached on foot from the city center.

The road to Mogren is worthy of a separate mention. Taking the Old Town as a reference point, we walk along the promenade past Richards Head Beach and Avala Resort & Villas. Ducking under the canopy of the new building, we emerge on a small trail winding along the cliff. From here begins the incredible beauty, which in itself is a worthy excuse to explore the new beach. This is one of the most picturesque corners of Budva, where everyone easily becomes a great photographer. In addition to the fantastic views, you can admire along the way, for example, blooming cacti.

The whole route to the beach will take you a maximum of 20 minutes (from the city center to Mogren about 2 km). Sometimes the path becomes quite narrow and seems even dangerous – there are no barriers on it everywhere, and the steep cliffs seem to overhang as if on purpose, threatening to rockfall. However, experienced travelers say that there is actually no danger here. Just be careful, wear comfortable shoes with non-skid soles, and refrain from walking the trail in the rainy season.

If you are travelling from outlying areas of Budva, the Eco Taxi is popular in this town.

Richard’s Head beach will remain behind. Just beyond the stone cover you will see an iron gate with the inscription Mogren carved above it.

The entire length of the trail is fenced with a secure iron fence. The places where there may be a rock fall on the cliff, draped in iron nets.

At their own risk, some tourists climb over the fence and sit right on the huge boulders. The seabed in these places is often strewn with stones and is not suitable for swimming.

Mogren II is located just behind the first, it is only necessary to pass through a tunnel in the rock. There is usually a wooden bridge here, but if it’s missing or broken, you’ll have to wade past the cliff. Be extremely careful: not infrequently the planks are slippery.
