    perast

    You can get to Perast folowing Bok Kotorska Bay coast line , it is 12 form Kotor to Herceg Novi. The road is near , but it is not much trouble to drive there and there is no much trafic. People usually use ferry to get to the other side of the bay, so that part of the bay doesnt have much traffic. if you drive you ll have the chance to get to know Montenegro coast and enjoy great view:)

    There are busses form Kotor and Herceg Novi .

    To the island Our Lady of the Rock by boat

    Our boat to the island
    1 more image

    When we walked along the waterfront, some local guys offered us to shuttle us with their boat to the island Our Lady of the Rock for a price of 4 Euro per person. We found this price quite reasonable and agreed on the service.

    The boat trip to the island took only about 5 Minutes and we spent as much time as we wanted there. On the return trip the guy even drove us along the other island called St. George, which can't be visited by the public.

    Our small boat left from somewhere near the Bujovic Palace in Perast. For me it looked like, that most of the official boats leave from near the main square (Trg Sv Nikole).

    To Perast by bus

    Typcial bus for the Bay of Kotor
    1 more image

    When we were in Kotor we spontaneously decided to take a side trip by bus to Perast. All buses from Kotor to Herceg Novi or any other places in this direction go along Perast.

    In Kotor these buses can be either caught at the main bus station or at the bus stop just outside the city wall.

    In August 2010 a ticket for this route cost between 1,00 and 1,50 Euro and the trip took less than 30 Minutes.

    We even told the driver that we wanted to get off in Perast, so the bus stopped somewhere just above Perast.

    For me it looked like the official bus stops for Perast are both at the beginning and the end of the town. That was where we then also took the bus back to Kotor.

    Nuts & Bolts

    by NickCh Written Oct 2, 2006

    The only way to do the country justice is to see it - at your own pace - by car; the flexiility it'll bring you will make it all worthwhile. Oh, and try to avoid Niksic (a major junction) - we got lost there . . . easily done, and it ain't pretty.

    Take the belt route to Perast

    Perast, Montenegro

    Most people go to Perast by car, and you will have to drive the long way around the Bay of Kotor (from Herceg Novi to Tivat). If you take the Kamenari-Lepatani ferry (the short cut across the bay), you'll miss Perast.

    We drove our smuggled rental car rented in Italy all around the Bay of Kotor, including Perast, without any mishaps. We hit Perast after participating in slava festivities in Risan, a neighboring town.

    Driving throughout Montenegro in 2004 generally wasn't as hair-raising as it was in 1986. I don't know if the Montenegrin drivers are safer, or maybe I am just more oblivious now because I have so many other things on my mind these days.

    perast

    Gospa od Skrpjela ( Lady of Rocks ) is a little artificial island near Perast.

    In order to get there , you should go to the little cafe Pirate Cafe and ask for a ride. A guy is usually there and he will take you to the island in a little boat for 2 euros per person. The ride is 10 minutes long.

    The bus conetion to Perast is very good. There are numerous buses from Kotor during the day. The same is from the Herceg Novi direction. Some of the buses are very good and some are not, but even if you take the bad one it is not a big deal becouse it is a SHORT RIDE.

    There are many locals who can ge you a boat ride from Perast to the islands of Gospa od Škrpjela and Sv.Djordje, for a very fair and cheap price, and of course, they can come back to pick you up whenever you wish.
