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.
