    The beach at Igalo doesn't look anything special. It enjoys a nice setting with a backdrop of mountains and good views out into the Bay of Kotor, but the beach itself is unremarkable; a thin strip of sand and pebbles, a few plastic sunbeds and slightly littered.

    However, the attraction of Igalo beach lies beneath the sea...and I'm not talking about the crabs that scuttle by your feet as you wade into the water!

    Igalo is famed as a health spa resort, boasting a huge institute that provides various treatments to local and foreign tourists. An important part of this treatment is the black sea mud that apparently contains healing properties. We had read that we could avoid paying for such treatments and simply make our way to the local beach where the sea mud was in abundant supply. So we did. And it was.

    We spent an hour or so in the warm shallow waters (we could walk out for hundreds of metres without the sea getting any deeper than knee height) and liberally covered ourselves in the thick mud from the seabed.

    It was good fun and, even if it didn't have any health benefits, at least it didn't cost us anything!

    Igalo beach is easily reached on foot from the town of Herceg Novi. It took us around 45 minutes to walk there along the seafront promenade of Setaliste Pet Danica. Alternatively, there are plenty of local buses that make the short journey between Herceg Novi and Igalo.

    Igalo beach – an abundant supply of free therapeutic healing mud!

    The best and cheapest way to come to Igalo from Tivat or Dubrovnik airport is to make reservation before, because if you take taxi from the airport you will pay them a lot of money. I have discovered on internet (www.intravelmontenegro.net) travel agency from Igalo, you can see the price list for transfers and make reservation by internet. Just visit a web site and you would see what I am talking about.

    Favorite thing: Favorite thing: Anointing with healing sea mud in Igalo,west of HN, is the only thing that this sea resort distinguish from the others in the region. Apply mud on your big joints and let it dry on your skin while your take sunbath for an hour or more, and then wash it up in the sea. If you have health problems such as rheumatism, you'll feel better after treatment. The seawater is very salty comparing with the same in Southern Dalmatia.
