    Joke !

    Actually, this is not really a warning of danger but a joke. Before we came to Montenegro, I had heard a fake add that said "visit Montenegro, you car is already there". Matt (VT Matcrazy1) told me that a few years ago the same joke was heard in Germany about Poland and that now it was used in Poland as a warning for Lettonia ! Montenegro is perfectly safe, do not worry!

    The concrete beach in Stari Grad

    Ulcinj concrete beach needs to be made safer
    4 more images


    I have a daughter recently turned 12 year old,
    the age when kids love to wander off and explore
    and "do their own thing"
    Well Clara my daughter found the concrete beach which
    was situated next to where we were staying in the Stari
    Grad at 'Zuto's Apartament' which was next to his
    brothers place,the well known Antigona fish restaurant
    which has a magnificent view of the sea and rocks below
    with the sea crashing up against the rocks. I have a more
    recent fear of heights so did not dare venture down the
    rickety planks of wood with a sheer drop next to the
    exposed drop to the cove below...
    My daughter went off against my wishes several times
    down to this concrete beach and maybe with the
    knowledge I would probably not follow, feel like she
    had claimed a part of this coastline for herself,
    somewhere where Daddy would not come.
    But if your a regular climber and have no fear of heights..
    go ahead...it's probably the exact opposite to the Mala Plaza
    with it's thousands of sun umbrellas and hoards of visitors.
    The concrete beach is on the right hand side of the
    HIDEOUS,UGLY half finished totally illegal hotel that
    nobody seems to know where the Russian who
    paid for it has gone?
    So be careful if you have kids..

    Nature calls and public toilets in Ulcinj

    Ulcinj, Mala Plaza public toilet
    4 more images


    When the urge calls that you need
    to relieve yourself and find a toilet,
    then I would suggest carrying a roll
    of toilet paper at all times and either
    use the facilities of where your staying.
    The bus station has good clean free
    toilets but the public toilet costs a few € cents
    but I found it flooded with water and
    the turkish style squat style not my favourite
    kind of toilets, but there were a few Western
    style toilets too.
    Alternativly use one of the restaurant or cafe
    toilets along the Mala Plaza, maybe purchase a coffee
    or mineral water so not to abuse the free use.
    Toilet situated at southern most part of
    Mala Plaza walking away from Stari Grad

    Choose the time of your visit carefully!

    Ok as I set out in my intro, your enjoyment of Ulcinj during the low season will depend entirely on your personal tastes and preferences. If you want a lively atmosphere you are better off waiting until the summer, but if you want to explore the town without the summer crowds, Ulcinj does have a more sleepy atmosphere for the rest of the year. It can be very pleasant walking around the Old Town and along the coast during the low season, especially in April or May, when the weather is still warm but without the heat of the summer which draws thousands of holiday makers. Don’t expect the range of accommodation, dining and nightlife options so readily available during the high season and be prepared for the neglected appearance of the beachfront and road to Velika Plaza. I wasn’t expecting the place to be so quiet and it caught us a little unaware, considering the rest of Montenegro’s hotspots, while nowhere near as busy as during the summer, were starting to gear up for the season and were welcoming visitors with a full range of facilities. Visiting at this time of year has the bonus of cheaper accommodation and cheap transportation and you will have the beautiful beaches all to yourself!

    The walk to Velika Plaza (big beach)

    by Dougann Written Feb 23, 2004

    The Bradt guidebook (think it's the only one at the moment available for Montenegro) says it's easy to walk 45 minutes from the Hotel Albatros to the Big Beach in Ulcinj. It's not a particularly easy walk though - goes through woods and then over pretty dodgy looking rocks.

    Better bet is to get a taxi from the centre of Ulcinj - it cost us about 2 euros each way.

    Private apartments could lie in their ads!

    by feseal Written Jun 23, 2010

    Be careful with private apartments because they could lie in their advertisement!
    When we arrived to Ulcinj, we were very angry because our booked apartment was more expensive than on the internet, weren't included breakfast, towels, etc...
    So try to choose an apartment with some review and english speaking owner...
