Handpicked by a Montenegro Local Expert, we bring you our guide to 'Hidden Spots of Lustica Peninsula'.


The Lustica peninsula is a small holy paradise that hides many secrets rich in history, stories, and legends. It is located at the entrance to the Bay of Kotor, and due to its location is known as an ideal place for escaping from the city noise. Luštica itself covers an area of about 47 km2, while the length of its coast is about 35 km. There are 15 settlements and as many as 20 churches in that area. The peninsula alone has about 400 permanent residents, although that number increases significantly during the summer season. Roughly speaking, the territory of this peninsula is divided between the municipalities of Tivat and Herceg Novi.

One of the best attractions of the peninsula besides churches and small settlements are beaches, which vary from small and pebble to big and sandy. These are some of the hidden and magnificent places that have caught our attention.      

Arza Fortress

  Arza is a fortress built on the Luštica peninsula during the hundred-year rule of the Austro-Hungarians, in this part of the Montenegrin coast.
