Tivat in the summer and autumn are very different. Not only the weather changes. According to feedback from tourists, in the velvet season vacationers become few, so Tivat does not resemble a seaside resort in Montenegro.

Reviews about the beaches and the sea in Tivat
At the Montenegrin resort are not wide pebble beaches or concrete platforms. Many of them belong to hotels. The entrance to the sea is steep, the depth begins close to the shore. The water is clean and clear – in shallow water you can see small fish.
According to reviews of tourists, for recreation with children in Tivat suitable fine pebble beach Belane, which is located in the center of the resort and has a convenient entrance to the water. In the suburbs of Tivat – in Donja Lastva, Selianovo and Kalardovo – there are several good places for recreation.
A little further from Tivat are the beaches of Lustica peninsula and the most beautiful sandy beach on the coast, Plavi Horizonti, which has the honorary Blue Flag.
Hope: “What a sea! It’s just gorgeous! Clean, transparent, a little invigorating, of course, but its beauty was more than offset by the coolness of the water.

The most famous attraction in Tivat is the beautiful Boko-Kotor Bay. Judging by the reviews, tourists liked the excursions to the largest in the Balkans Skadar Lake, Perast, Herceg Novi and travel through the mountain ranges of Prokletija.

Tourist reviews about Tivat. Leisure tips – 2022
Tivat in September There are few attractions in Tivat itself, so I advise to choose hotel and beaches more carefully. I advise to visit family and quiet park Zupa, and expensive and pompous Porto Montenegro is worth the money, excellent patisserie and pizza. We were looking for a hotel for a long time, but the most ideal place was Hotel Sun, in Selyanovo. It is about 3 km walk from the bus station. By the way, there is a chain supermarket Franca. I advise to buy there, including wine, a very good choice.
The bad news: beaches in Tivat
Yachting in Tivat Beach holidays in Tivat, I am not impressed. There are not bad beaches Kalardovo for example, or at the hotels Palma and Kamelia. For me, in Montenegro and in particular in Tivat from personal offers on yachting. If you are an experienced and independent in this business, I think you know all the charms. I will tell a little about yachting for “dummies”, so to speak for the first time. First of all. For the first time enough for a couple of days, with overnight stay in the cabin. (Hourly rentals are expensive and will not give the full picture).
Anna good afternoon, write your contacts, wanted to clarify from whom you chartered a yacht, if you were very pleased. Thanks in advance)
We were not sitting in one place, we went somewhere or went almost every day: Herzog Novi, Kotor, Budva, Bar, Podgorica, Petrovac, Lovcen, Skadar Lake and just along the mountains or along the coast.
And here’s what we learned from this trip: for a beach vacation, either too many people or water and beach quality repulsive, or sometimes both at the same time. In August it is so, in the fall or spring maybe
Beware of thieves in airport security! Arrived yesterday from Montenegro! This is outrageous! Robbed by airport security staff! While you go through the metal detector and then they search you. They open your bags without your supervision, go through your belongings, and if they see something stabbing you. And on the sly, they rob you! They act as if by hypnosis. And they do not take everything. Otherwise there will be a ruckus! Limitless impudence and rudeness!
It is time to expand the airport I liked, but it is probably the merit of Montenegrins working there. There are an insane number of jokes and sayings about laziness of the Montenegrins, but in fact they are very fast. As soon as the plane landed they quickly unloaded the luggage, quickly got all passengers through passport control, customs, took their luggage and voila – went to the hotel! Check-in for the return flight was pretty fast as well, but I’m sure we were lucky too. There were no delays,
Tivat was optimal! Why? First of all because of the greatest possibility of a choice. Well advertised: Budva, Igalo, Petrovac, Rafailovichi etc, are very one sided and expensive. From Tivat to all these centers to go equally close, plus Kotor, Risan, the same Dubrovnik. Secondly: there are TWO beach options near Tivat. On the shore of Boka Kotorskaya bay (the water is warmer and there are no (!) storms) and the Adriatic. These are Plavi Horizonti and Blue Lagoon. In general, there are seven beaches in Tivat area. Any – to choose from. And, third, and most importantly, Tivat is not yet a popular resort, it is not spoiled by the big prices and can find an apartment for 30 euros and a meal for two with wine for 20-th. There is a promenade boulevard with an abundance of not expensive cafes, there is a seaport with cruises in the neighborhood, there are museums and a botanical garden. In short, there’s something to see and where to relax and it’s all in a minute (!) Accessibility from the airport.

We were there from October 29 to November 5, 2013. I bought plane tickets – 24k and a 10k apartment reservation. I liked it very much. Weather our favorite – about 20-23, the sun shines, the sea rustles, a weak breeze. The town is very green, houses 2-3 storey with small gardens, grapes everywhere, but purely decorative, no one collects it. City House apartments we liked, lived on the 3rd floor, view of the mountains. It was quiet, sometimes you can hear the music school kids playing. Every hour, the bells on the bell tower rang.

Tivat airport – the way to happiness! We recently (July-August 2013) visited Montenegro! Beautiful country, but today I would like to stop at the place where it all started – the airport. Tivat airport is a small airfield, which is practically on the beach (which surprised us a lot at first). So, let’s begin. Our plane had landed and all passengers rushed to the nose gate – here began the adventure. It turns out that the airport is so small that the plane literally landed next to the entrance where

Double bull’s-eye Sharing my fresh impressions. We decided to organize our vacation on our own, not trusting the tour operators. On this site we scoured the offers, compared prices and came to the conclusion that Montenegro will be best for us in “Flower Island”, even a block away, booked tickets, contacted the hotel administrator via Skype, right in Bar we met the driver and drove to the place. It was late evening, we were fed, such a huge meal, we refreshed and went straight to bed.
