Herceg Novi

Herceg Novi: The Gateway to Montenegro's Mediterranean Coast


The city of Herceg Novi is to Montenegro what Montenegro was to Europe a decade ago: largely undiscovered, indescribably gorgeous, endearingly welcoming and practically impossible not to fall in love with on your first visit! While you might not know much about the place, or had even heard of it before now, it's truly all the best of aspects of Montenegro in one convenient package.

Covering the far southwestern corner of the country, the larger Herceg Novi municipality stretches from the international borders with Croatia and Bosnia in the west and north to the clear, turquoise waters of Boka Bay, with the rocky mountains rising dramatically from the sea and culminating in the nearly 2000m peak of Mount Orjen. To the south of the sits the Luštica peninsula, whose rustic charm has been preserved amidst the recent development of tourism.

Back on the north shore, Herceg Novi town is the centre of the action, with the narrow lanes of its ancient old town meandering down the hill towards the water, while there are a dozen or so separate settlements running along the coastline, each offering a slightly different atmosphere for guests. On the pages below you can find the best places to eat, drink, see, play and stay in greater Herceg Novi, as well as all the practical info your need to plan your trip and make the most of your stay.
