“Experience the beautiful coast of Boka Bay from the boat. This tour is a definite must on any traveler’s to-do list. A little hint: you will not regret taking a break in Perast. And in case you would like to have an authentic experience, visit the mussel farm, and learn the whole process, from picking mussels to preparing beautiful meals and tasting local products in a unique ambiance.”
Ivan Vučićević, Assistant Recreation Manager
“I would recommend trying land and water activities to see the pristine beauty of Luštica Bay. Explore the unspoiled beauty of the Adriatic Sea with our thrilling kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding (SUP) tour. There's nothing quite like feeling the sun on your face and the fresh sea air in your lungs as you glide through crystal clear waters surrounded by breathtaking scenery. Then book an e-bike and explore our peninsula while enjoying stunning views.”
Andrea and Ivan made a list of tours and activities they highly recommend based on their experiences exploring the Luštica Peninsula. Check out their top picks for adventures and sightseeing below.
Boka Bay tour
Embark on an exhilarating speedboat tour that unlocks the secrets of the illustrious past of Boka Bay. Our guide will take you on a journey through the remarkable history of the bay, from its strategic importance in ancient times to the tourist hot spot it is today, highlighting the legendary UNESCO-protected sites. Visit the hidden coves, secluded beaches, and charming coastal towns while taking in the stunning views of the bay. This tour is for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of rich Montenegrin history and beauty.
Our best travel tips: Make a short stop to visit Perast and Prčanj, the two of the most charming towns in Boka Bay. Also, a tour of Boka Bay couldn't be complete without visiting the picturesque islet Our Lady of the Rocks.
A one-of-a-kind experience that allows you to discover the rich cultural heritage of Montenegro while indulging in its world-renowned seafood. Learn about the different stages of farming, from seeding to harvesting, and witness the ropes and buoys that support mussel growth. After the tour, you can taste fresh oysters from the sea and enjoy the local specialty – mussels on buzara. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to learn about sustainable seafood farming and relish the local cuisine.
Our best travel tips: The recommendation for adults is 5-8 pieces of oysters, 1-2 kg of mussels per person (150-200g of meat), with a glass of white wine. You can also find patented, naturally enriched, marked, and declared amphoras and wines from the depths of the Adriatic Sea, available for purchase.
Kayaking and SUP
Soak in the sun and the fresh sea air as you glide through the water, surrounded by breathtaking scenery and the sounds of the sea. Our tours are designed to be fun and safe, with top-quality equipment and guidance (if needed) to ensure an unforgettable experience. We’re passionate about protecting the natural beauty of Montenegro’s coastline, so you can paddle with peace of mind knowing that you’re making a positive impact on the environment.
Our best travel tips: Kayaking is a great way to see Blue Cave. This natural attraction is clean and suitable for swimming, and if you submerge below the water with goggles, you’ll see the blues with rays of sunlight shining through intensely. On the way to the Blue Cave, you will enjoy passing breathtaking landscapes and wild beaches.
Hop on an e-bike and immerse yourself in the wonders of the Luštica Peninsula. You won’t be disappointed! As you ride through stunning landscapes and take in the panoramic views of the glittering Adriatic Sea, you’ll feel your worries melt away. But it’s not just about the breathtaking scenery - the Luštica Peninsula is a treasure trove of history and culture. You’ll have the chance to explore ancient, fortified fortresses (such as Kabala and Arza), wander through groves of fragrant olive trees, and discover hidden beaches.
Our best travel tips: Luštica Peninsula has several charming villages, including Tići, Klinci, Rose, and Bjelila. You will find a couple of farms and smallholders producing their own olive oil, cheese, prosciutto, wine, and rakija from local ingredients - and you must try it! Taste some of the fresh fish that is caught daily by local fishermen. Take a swim. Have a picnic. Enjoy the Montenegrin way of life!
