Tivat has in recent years become one of the foremost lifestyle destinations on the Adriatic coast.
One of Tivat’s key advantages is its strategic location, just 5km from the international airport, 15 minutes by car from Kotor, 30 minutes from Budva and 15 minutes from Lustica Peninsula’s superb sandy beaches.
The town has a reputation as being one of the sunniest spots in the Bay of Tivat and features a long promenade which takes you through the spectacular Porto Montenegro Marina, with its gleaming super yachts, all the way to the ferry in Lepetane – a great place for a scenic stroll. Tivat is also known for its glitzy shopping, international fine dining restaurants and swanky bars. Thanks in part to the large number of foreigners either temporarily or permanently in Tivat, the town has a lively nightlife scene all year around.
