Montenegro (Black Mountains) is an amazing sailing spot on the Adriatic coast, bordering Croatia to the north and Albania to the south. Mountainous landscapes are a stunning setting for your sailing trip through the narrow bay of Kotor. From West to East: Herceg Novi, the Perast twin Islands, Tivat, Kotor, Budva and Sveti Stefan are great places to discover for sailing fanatics.
The cruise in Montenegro is divided into two parts: the Kotor Bay (a fjord divided into two basins) and the coastline (from Rose to Bar). The sailing area is very easy and is recommended for families and newcomers to sailing, or for those looking for a new destination for their vacation.
The recommended sailing season is between May and October. The weather is warm and pleasant with temperatures ranging from 22-30 degrees along the coastline. The prevailing winds are Northerly to North-Westerly. The Bora winds can occur suddenly from the Northeast, and you should keep an eye out for its sudden arrival.
