Day 5: Bigova - Tivat

The Bay of Kotor in seven days

The Blue Cave (Plava Spilja)

Welcome to mystical Plava Špilja. The Blue Cave, or Plava Špilja in Montenegrin, is located on Luštica peninsular, reachable only from the side of the sea. The name of the cave speaks for itself-- the seawater and refracted sunlight bathe the whole interior in glimmering light and dark blues. The cave area is approximately 300 sq. m, and the entrance is fairly big for boats and motor boats – up to 4 meters high and 15 meters wide. When going to Plava Špilja, try to steer clear of cruise ships nearby that may be following the same route with you, otherwise you’ll have to enjoy the cave sights with a crowd. Such magic is best experienced in small groups.

Mamula Island

Mamula is a little isle six kilometers from the city of Herceg Novi. It’s interesting because of the fort built here in 1853. Together with fortifications on Prevlaka peninsular and Luštica peninsular, Mamula Island defended and secured Herceg Novi. During World War II Mamula turned into a prison island. Today yachts and tourist ferries moor by its shores every day with numerous people wishing to see the fortifications, rocky shores, and quaint beach.

Sveti Marko Island

The Island of St. Mark is where you go to beat the rush. This, the most beautiful island of the Boka Kotorska Bay, will soon be home to a fashionable resort causing prices to skyrocket. But until then, while the Island of St. Mark is open to all who wish to visit, you can fully enjoy gleaming and wild nature filled with olive groves, straight cypresses, and fragrant flowers in the quiet and solitude.


The modern, port city of Tirat often serves as the starting point for travelling over Montenegro, as the biggest airport of the country is located here. However, the city has more to offer than just convenience.

First of all, yachtsmen will be impressed by the splendid marina built in place of the old shipyard. Three enchanting islands in the Boka Kotorska Bay are included in Tivat Riviera: the Island of Flowers, the Island of St. Mark and the Island of Our Lady of Mercy. The main sight of the city itself is the medieval Mucha Palace built more than 500 years ago. A picture gallery is now located in one of the five buildings that make up the Palace.
