If you’ve been following along, you’ll know that we’ve just published a really in-depth Montenegro yacht charter guide—proving once and for all that this dramatically beautiful country offers more than enough to keep you occupied for a 7-day charter.
The luxury offering in Montenegro is growing at a stratospheric rate, and one of the most decadent ways to celebrate your Montenegro yacht charter is with a day at a beach club, lazing about on soft white daybeds and diving off pontoons into the blue-green sea.
Yet the Montenegro beach club scene is just as much about partying as relaxing, with DJs playing as the sun sets into the Adriatic. Whether you want to sip vintage champagne on a deckchair, long-lunch by the sparkling water, or dance on a moonlit sea terrace, a Montenegro beach club has it all.
To help you plan your Montenegro superyacht charter, here’s a list of the best beach clubs in Montenegro, organised by region. And if you’re carrying on up the coast to Croatia, you can jump in here to plan your trip with our Croatia Yachting Guide.
Beach Clubs on the Lustica Peninsula
Almara Beach Club
One of the most glamorous of all the Montenegro beach clubs, Almara is located in a perfect turquoise cove against a backdrop of pine forest and olive groves.
Almara spills over four terraced levels, with a huge deck built over the water and sloping white sand scattered with plush deckchairs, canopied daybeds, and a tiki cocktail bar.
Order a magnum of champagne to the shady lounge area or dine at a white cloth table on the top deck, where the elegant restaurant serves up refined Mediterranean cuisine with breathtaking Adriatic views. This is pure beach club bliss.
Drawing a superyacht crowd in the summer months, Almara is a must-do experience on your Montenegro yacht charter, with top DJ’s creating a party atmosphere as the day wears on.
Perhaps better described as an upscale beachside restaurant rather than a typical beach club, Ribarsko Selo’s gorgeous bathing deck with double sunbeds and shady lounge settings means it qualifies it for this list.
But it’s the seafood and sunsets that you’ll come to Ribarsko Selo for. Ribarsko Selo is located in the fishing village of the same name, and the restaurant’s chefs serve up deliciously fresh seafood delivered by the local fishermen each morning, complemented by organic produce from their herb and vegetable garden.
The restaurant setting is an Adriatic dream overlooking the entrance to the Bay of Kotor, offering what may well be the finest sunsets in the country. And in case you need further inducements, there’s a masseuse on-site for a leisurely massage in between cocktails and swims.
Beach Clubs on the Budva Riviera
Dukley Beach Lounge, Budva
If it’s jet-set glamour you’re looking for in your Budva beach club experience, get thine self to Dukley Beach Lounge in Dukley Gardens by the sea.
This exclusive Montenegro beach club hangout offers three beaches: the secluded, upscale ‘VIP Beach’, the sandy ‘Moet et Chandon’ Beach, and the tranquil ‘Lagoon Beach’. Take your pick—they’re all very, very lovely.
When it’s time to eat, take a table in the restaurant, either on its stunning cantilevered terrace hanging over the beach, or in the modern, coastal chic dining room with floor-to-ceiling glass, gauzy white curtains, and potted rosemary and lemon trees.
The chef team creates a menu of innovative ‘New Mediterranean’ cuisine that will delight you as you gaze back across the water to Budva’s Old Town. If you’re coming for dinner, there’s even an alfresco cinema down on the beach for movies by the moonlit sea.
Astoria Beach Café/Restaurant, Budva
The Astoria Beach Café is part of the boutique Astoria Hotel, and sits on the beach between the Old Town walls.
The beach at Budva is always bustling with locals and tourists enjoying the views of the sparkling sea, so take a seat on one of the soft couches under sweeping shade cloths, order yourself a café frappe or a cocktail, and soak up the atmosphere of Montenegrin life.
In keeping with Budva’s reputation as a party town, Astoria Beach Café also hosts summer day parties with DJ’s, while the view at sunset makes this a great place for a pre-dinner drink.
Torch Beach, Budva
Located on Slovenska Beach, Budva, Torch Beach is the beach club you want to go if you feel like a poolside party that goes long into the night.
Chill out by day on the white loungers on the beach or poolside, before the DJ’s take to the stage and Torch Beach becomes one of Budva’s most popular A-list nightspots.
Run by the successful UK Torch Platforms franchise that has hosted celebrity beach club events at the Cannes Film Festival and Monaco Grand Prix, Torch Beach is bringing day and night luxury to the Budva Riviera for the party crowd.
Plaza Galija, Sveti Stefan, Budva Riviera
Nestled on a breathtaking turquoise cove near Sveti Stefan, this stylish beach bar and restaurant is sheltered by red rock cliffs and fragrant Mediterranean marquis. Soft white loungers run along the shore, and a jetty stretches out into the sea, where the young at heat dive into the Adriatic and boats bob at anchor.
Considered by some to be the most beautiful beach in Montenegro, Plaza Galija is a place to lie back on a deckchair, order a cocktail, and dream.
Kamenovo Beach Bar & Restaurant, Budva Riviera
A young and cheerful beach bar with crowded day parties in the summertime, this beach club may not be as upscale as the others, but it sure is fun.
People spend long sunny days here playing waterpolo and beach volleyball and drinking funky-coloured cocktails from the bar. There’s a restaurant serving up fresh beachside food, and live bands and DJs raise the tempo as the sun sets on another unforgettable day on charter in Montenegro.
Bay of Kotor Beach Clubs
Waikiki Beach Club, Tivat, Bay of Kotor
Located on the breathtaking Bay of Kotor near Porto Montenegro, Waikiki Beach Club is a place to lie back on a deckchair, gaze up at the mountains, and paddle in the emerald water at the edge of the bay.
The VIP beach is the spot for superyacht guests with its soft white loungers and table service, or you can adjourn to the shady beach bar, where DJs play until late on summer nights.
If you get hungry, the Waikiki Seafood Restaurant welcomes you in, either to a table on its white wicker terrace or into the cool, elegant restaurant with glass windows overlooking the sea.
La Perla Beach Club, Bay of Kotor
On the waterfront of the swanky La Perla Hotel, plush canopied daybeds line the shore, rows of sunbeds line the waterfront terraces, and more deckchairs surround the spectacular pool. Order a cocktail and a wood-fired pizza, listen to the DJ lounge music…and relax. This is beach club, hotel- style.
One of the advantages of the La Perla beach club is that there’s an opulent day spa in the hotel, so you can drag yourself away from your daybed to have a massage, before returning to your spot by the sea.
Movida Beach Club, Bay of Kotor
Another Bay of Kotor beach club, Movida is based in Solila Marina, just a stone’s throw from Porto Montenegro.
At Movida, tiki umbrellas are nestled among lavender bushes and pines, and deckchairs overlook the yachts bobbing in the marina. A couple of white canopied daybeds sit on the beach, their wispy curtains blowing gently in the breeze.
This blissfully relaxing beach club is a gorgeous spot to spend an afternoon, somersaulting off the pontoon, relaxing in the VIP garden, or dancing until late to DJs. There’s also a restaurant terrace for a long lunch by the sea, enjoying the spectacular views across the Bay of Kotor.
You could easily visit a beach club a day while on charter in Montenegro and still not get to them all. Which one will be your favourite?
