The Bay of Kotor lives up to everything you read about it. Dark and dramatic cliffs, medieval villages and a less affluent, more laid back lifestyle than the glitz and flashiness of neighboring Croatia. Kotor old town butts up against a steep cliff, naturally sheltered by the fjord like inlet. The city has survived centuries of would be invaders, thanks... More

We went Stand Up Paddleboarding in the Bay of Kotor - and it was beautiful. The bay has a few small islands and is surrounded by mountains.

It's like a Norwegian fjord with better weather..and much better prices. Cliffs straight into the sea. Beautiful medieval old town. Nice food. Reasonably priced, decent service. Can rent boat to go out in bay, cayac etc. No sandy beach but some pontoon for getting into the clear water.

A spectacular bay surrounded by mountains the only downside is the cruise ships that visit daily, sometimes 2 or 3 at a time.

We entered the Bay of Kotor at around 5.30 am and I made my way to the bridge of the Wind Surf, the ship we sailed on. For the next 2 hours we cruised Kotors' Fjord, a spectacular experience between the high mountains on both sides. One of the nicest approaches to any waterfront city. Sailing away at night was...

The bay is beautiful- stunning and makes you feel closer to god and nature. The outside restaurants were littered with child beggars and the waiter even tried to add an 'extra' 20% service charge... when questioned he soon backed off- it gave me an uneasy feeling about this place. I would return though but be aware of picky pocks... me... More
