Lustica Peninsula is life the way it used to be in Montenegro... and it's breathtaking.Lustica Peninsula shows you Montenegrin life they way it used to be... and it's breathtaking

Usually you can't see this stunning part of Montenegro without a rental car, because Lustica Peninsula isn't serviced by public transport. Because it's a bit cut off from the main centres like that, it's like a different world to the rest of coastal Montenegro.

Compared to the rest of the coast, Lustica Peninsula is undeveloped and wild and you can really get a feel for what authentic Montenegro culture and lifestyle is all about. 

But it won't stay this way for too much longer. There's already a lot of development in the works and much more planned. So our advice is to go and see this treasure before the olive groves and wilderness are lost to more villas and apartments.

The great thing is Lustica Peninsula is just a 15 minute drive from Tivat and Kotor - so you don't even have to travel far to see this breathtaking part of the country.
