The Bay of Kotor, with its rich history, literally takes you into the depths of time. Many tourists come to visit Kotor and the nearby islands, discover the Roman mosaics in Risan and enjoy a cup of coffee in the magical city of Perast. But do not forget about relaxed beach vacation. If you travel here by car, you see many road signs pointing to a beach, and every place is unique in its own way.

Beautiful beaches lay side by side around the Bay of Kotor. To get to Kostanjica, carefully follow the signs on the road.

There is no amenities or restaurants, so bring your food and drinks.
