The video above is from an afternoon spent biking along the in the lovely old town of Perast, Montenegro. I really loved and it’s one of those incredibly quiet spots where you forget about the stresses of the world. It’s not a large place but it’s right along the bay and it has all sorts of little restaurants on the waters edge. If you do go, I suggest you rent a bike like we did for next to nothing as it’s a great way to see the place.
Also, don’t just show up but make an afternoon or a day of it. Grab some bikes and have a backpack with what you’ll need. Go for a swim, then find something to eat at one of the restaurants along the bay or simply pack a picnic. When I brought my mom to Montenegro, this was one of the places I wanted to show her but when we first arrived it was raining and when we made it back to Montenegro we were tired and she had a long flight the next day.
Getting to Perast is easy as it’s only a few minutes by car from the town of Kotor. You can also access it by boats that leave from Kotor should one wish. If you’ve got a car you could also easily make a day trip to Perast from the Budva Riviera as it’s only a ~30 minute drive. My advice would be to make it a day trip to visit both Perast and Kotor if you have a car. If you don’t have a car and traveling around by bus, maybe spend a night or so in Kotor and spend one of the days / afternoons lounging by the bay in Perast.
Big thanks to my friends at for their hospitality, great times hanging with them.
P.S: Enjoy the video? .
