It was the perfect location for that first morning “kafa” in the town of Budva yesterday, enjoying the warm breeze and listening to the waves of the Adriatic Sea.
The town of Budva is only a short 40 minutes bus ride from Kotor. It sits directly on the Adriatic sea with the towering mountains on one side of the town and the turquoise sea on the other. There are miles of beaches here so it is most likely a very popular Montenegro destination in the summer. At this time of year, we practically had this one beach area to ourselves. I desperately wanted to get in that turquoise water! 🏊♀️
Maybe I can dive in from this platform??
When you google Budva you will often see a photo of this statue below. It’s become the symbol of this town but no one seems to know too much about it. Researching it on the internet didn’t bring any more clarity. Before going to Budva, we had seen pictures of this statuette so we were not surprised when we came upon it on a secluded area of the beach. On the right-hand side of the ballerina statue, there is a small path that follows along the cliffs, overlooking the sea. Let’s see where it will take us…
Budva has a small historic town that is surrounded by fortified walls similar to Kotor. It is filled with little alleyways with stone buildings, boutiques, and restaurants. Fun to get lost in this maze.
The old and wiser will take you on my son…♟ but will my cigarette hold up to the task. 😊
Before heading back to Kotor we were looking for a small bite to eat in the old town. We noticed this little spot with a nice outdoor terrace and they advertised a high rating from Trip Advisor. We would absolutely recommend Sambra for lunch, café/pizzeria in the old town.
Great sign “Sambra”. 😊
