Sveti Stefan PromenadeThe promenade of Sveti Stefan is one of the most beautiful in Montenegro. It offers stunning views of the Adriatic Sea and the symbol of Montenegro - Sveti Stefan hotel-peninsula.
The promenade in Budva is a popular spot for both - tourists and locals alike. This promenade runs along the Budva Riviera and offers stunning views of the sea and the old town of Budva. It is packed with restaurants, cafes, and shops, making it a great place to relax and take in the scenery.

Donji Put in KotorThe literal translation is the Lower Path, as it's located right next to the water. It offers breathtaking views of the bay and the surrounding mountains in Kotor. On hot summer nights, walking the Donji Put promenade gives you a special feeling of calmness and peace, with a recognisable Mediterranean atmosphere combining maritime and land worlds into a perfect bland.
The main walkway in Herceg Novi is called Pet Danica (Five Danica), carrying the name in honour of five women all with the same name - Danica, who died during WWII. It's the longest near-the-shore walking track in the City, connecting villages Meljine and Igalo (or better explaining - two opposite parts of the city of Herceg Novi). Cafes, restaurants, people enjoying various activities - all this you will find here.

Bar PromenadeThe promenade stretches from the port of Bar to the end of the village of Šušanj. The entire course of the promenade follows the coast and here you can find a number of the most diverse restaurants. Halfway along the promenade, you can enjoy the Željeznica River Bridge, from where you can feed the ducks and enjoy the sceneries.
Pine is one of the symbols of Tivat, where neighbours, families and friends meet and go for walks together. Watching people strolling, sitting in a cafe or chatting, you get a feel for this special lifestyle. And if you get into conversation with the locals, you realise quite quickly: no one is a stranger here. Everyone is welcome.
A pedestrian path, about 700 meters long, from the Marina Village to Oblatno Bay and Almara Beach, is a Luštica Bay attraction for all residents, guests and visitors. The path, integrated into the surroundings, has several wooden bridges over the existing bays, while a wooden path was built over the steep rocks to preserve the natural ambience and sustainable approach of the tourism development in Trašte Bay.
