- Blue Cave is a must-see Montenegro coastal attractions
- Visit several other caves accessible only by kayak
Plava špilja - the Blue Cave - is so-named because of the brilliant blue colouration of the waters inside caused by light reflecting off the sandy bottom. Located in Boka Bay in the Adriatic Sea, it is one of the most popular visitor attractions in the area and a paradise for swimmers, snorkelers and underwater photographers. Your Montenegro gift experience begins in style, with a short but picturesque journey by minibus through the winding roads of Lustica Peninsula to Uvala Veslo. Here, at this dramatic coastal location, the kayaks are launched and you’ll hug the rocky coastline headed to the cave.
The waters of the cave vary from light to dark depending on the time of day you paddle through, but are always stunning. After around two hours exploring several caves which can only be accessed by kayak, meaning there will be fewer other people inside, you can spend some time snorkeling in the crystal-clear water, or purchase drinks and snacks back at the kayak camp, before returning to Kotor. A perfect experience for holidays in Montenegro if you enjoy getting out in nature and cooling off in the sea.
