What to do, where to go when you are in Bar
Bar is the modern, dynamic tourist place that has a rich historical background. There are lots of historical places in the vicinity and most important is the Old Town of Bar situated on about five kilometers from Center of Town on the foothills of mountain Rumija, having monuments left from many different cultures that collided and mixed in this area for over the thousand years of towns existence. Close to the old town is also a natural wonder older than the town itself, over two thousand years old olive tree in Mirovica.
There are lots of nice beaches in the vicinity, but they are usually overcrowded during the high season, which lasts until the end of August, so i will recommend two of them which are more up to my taste.
First of all Velika Plaža ( Long Beach ) near Ulcinj, with its 12 kilometer length one of biggest sandy beaches in Europe.
Beach of that size can’t be so easily overcrowded so there are lots of space for beach sports, football, volleyball, etc. Velika plaža is a most popular Kitesurfing spot at the Adriatic. Velika plaža stretches all the way to river Bojana on Montenegrin Border with Albania and in the estuary of River bojana there is a small island called Ada Bojana with three kilometers long beach and several good fish restaurants.
Second one beach to visit is Kraljičina plaža ( Queen’s beach ), situated in a small bay just after the Čanj beach. This beautiful beach with crystal clear water and surrounded by untouched nature can be accessed only by sea.
If you are in Bar, and you have enough time, we recommend to visit Virpazar and a take boat tour on Skadar Lake. Skadar Lake is one of the five National Parks in Montenegro, with plenty to see, from Old Fortresses, Churches and Monasteries on its islands to 264 bird species.
And when you are there don’t forget to taste local cuisine and some of the infamous local wines. If you love motorcycles, our Rent a Moto branch is offering the widest selection of motorcycles in Montenegro, with which you can take sightseeing tours around lake and enjoy its picturesque landscapes.
There are a few places on Earth that offer such high contrasts on such a small area as Montenegro does. This is just a small part of everything that should be seen, and it all depends on your preferences.
