We spent 10 days on honeymoon in nearby Becici and visited Budva almost every day or night.
As much as I love getting full of beer and potato chips and lying on a sun lounger, sometimes you gotta get your ass up and take in some culture.
Budva’s Old Town (Stari Grad) is a gorgeous setting with loads of great restaurants and bars and cute, narrow cobbled streets.
It’s very small and won’t take you long to explore in full, but we took plenty of pit stops to sample local beer and the excellent local wines. We ate at quite a few restaurants in the Old Town and never had a bad experience.
Large beers go for between €2 and €3, while some places sell glasses of the fantastic local wine for €1. I shit you not, €1. Yeah, you’ll probably never want to leave.
They call Budva a mini-Dubrovnik. And the great news is Budva is only a few hours away from the remarkable Croatian city. Day trips are cheap and easy to arrange. Read our review of just such a trip right here.
We enjoyed a lovely honeymoon in Montenegro and for sure it comes highly recommended as somewhere a little bit different to bathe in superb weather and sample amazing culture and scenery. Probably the best fortnight of our lives.
