Gently tucked into the UNESCO-protected Bay of Kotor, Porto Montenegro is the exclusive jet-set hotspot and yachting paradise that’s immersed in sparkling natural beauty. The coastal town sits within its own secluded corner of the Adriatic, surrounded by Montenegro’s outdoor grandeur and clean waters peppered with uninhabited islands, secret coves, pebble beaches and unique historical sites. Enclosed with staggering mountains and lush vegetation, the dramatic fjord-like inlet leading up to Porto Montenegro has left sailors breathless for many centuries.
Building on its enriching location, the recent transformation of a centuries-old naval shipyard into a state-of-the-art marina has injected new life into the region. Beyond the 450-berth marina and superyacht facilities, the construction of a fabulous residential village has thrusted Porto Montenegro into the Adriatic’s most bespoke luxury destination. After all, this is a place that’s been heralded as the “new Monaco” for its extravagant ambitions, as the impossibly glamorous town-within-a-town has become Europe’s most in vogue spots for elegant waterfront dining, tranquil spa days, refined shopping excursions and authentic cultural experiences.
