Budva Riviera is a rich tapestry of the most exquisite beaches that you can come across in all of Montenegro. Not too far from the city itself is Kamenovo Beach, a great example of how stunning and clean this coastline is.
Find out all you need to know about what it means to spend a day at this beach and what you can do to make it worthwhile. Most of all, figure out how to get to this remote paradise and what it is that drives the tourists in its embrace.
Getting to Kamenovo
Despite sitting along a major highway leading to southern reaches of the Montenegrin coastline and places such as Sveti Stefan, Petrovac, and Bar, Kamenovo feels awkwardly out of the way.
That makes getting to it a bit tough, but you’ll manage. We have to assume that you’ll be staying in one of the nearby towns, most likely Budva, as it is the biggest one around. If you’re looking for Kamenovo Beach, it’s also possible you’re staying in Przno. Either way, you need to reach Budva first, and considering the fact that Tivat airport is the nearest one, we’ll navigate you from there.
Taking a taxi directly from Tivat airport to towns around Budva should cost somewhere between €15 and €20. There are 12 miles (20 kilometers) from the airport to Budva, and then about 2 more miles to Przno. Kamenovo is located much closer to the latter, and won’t be trouble to be reached from there. Another option is a bus from Tivat station, so you could grab a taxi at the airport, get to the station, and then go on a bus ride to Budva. It will take about 45 minutes to get to your destination, and cost no less than €3. Finally, you can always rent a car and get all the problems out of your way.
If you’re on foot and heading from the direction of Budva, you can just go along the coast, eventually coming across a manmade tunnel. Head right through it and you’re at Kamenovo. Those driving will want to proceed along the highway, passing by the beach and leaving it behind them, before turning right at the parking lot. Parking here costs €5 for the day.
At the Beach
Rolling hills, lush greenery, and rogue shrubs here and there surround this amazing beach in Montenegro. If it were not for the highway passing right above it, you could mistake the entire area as being dislodged from the modern world, forgotten is some far-flung corner of the world.
We think that’s plenty of praise for the backdrop of Kamenovo, but that’s not what interest beach-goers the most. No, it’s the quality of the beach itself that is the most important, and the cleanliness of it all. In that regard, you’ll be happy to hear about all the positive aspects of this beach, which are many.

First of all, it’s composed of fine sand that most of the people prefer. However, strewn about the beach are pebbles and rocks and you can come upon them by accident. It’s not the greatest feeling in the world, being lulled into a false sense of security by all the gorgeous sand and then stepping on a sharp rock. You might want to consider wearing sandals if you’re too sensitive about that kind of stuff. If you want to avoid lying on them even more, there are sun lounger available for hire, usually for €10. They occupy only a small portion of this 1,080 feet (330 meters) long beach, meaning there’s enough room remaining for people bringing their own beach equipment.
Unfortunately, Kamenovo often gets overcrowded, which is unusual for a beach of its relative remoteness, so that is something you’ll have to deal with. Luckily, its size often allows people to find at least some portions of the beach that remain unoccupied. As far as amenities are concerned, there’s a restaurant that also offers a beach bar, a grill where you can get some delicious local food, and an ice cream parlor. Showers and changing room are available, the latter of which has a reputation for being unsanitary. You can even find a small playground for children to enjoy during your day at the beach.

The Adriatic Sea around these parts is something else altogether. The incredible azure color of the water around Kamenovo has become a symbol of this beach. Its incredible color combined with the pristine condition it is in, explain the willingness of crowds to find their way to Kamenovo, despite it being so well hidden. There are no sudden drops, the sea is shallow for quite a distance, and the decline is not so steep at all. With water temperature ususally staying between 23°C and 26°C during summer months, it’s quite easy to see why Kamenovo is so amazing for families with children. Each year, it is awarded with the Blue Flag status, showing its commitment to being pristine. A true azure paradise indeed!
Not everything is so heavenly, though. Buoys are placed quite close, giving far more space to jet skis and boats than swimmers. Since you can rent them here, there will always be several of them buzzing close by, annoying people trying to enjoy the sounds of the sea and also polluting the sea bed, making underwater exploration that less interesting. Also, the proximity of the highway can be unnerving at times, and it makes you feel not as comfortable and clean as you could be. Other than that, everything else is pretty much perfect and exactly what you need for a day at the beach.
Have no doubt about it – Kamenovo Beach is an azure paradise, simply stunning and clean for the most part. Between the playground, sand, and shallow sea, you can count on your kids having a blast here. Moreover, all the amenities you could need are right there, and even if there’s something you can’t find, Budva is quite close so you can get what you want there. Discover Kamenovo for yourself and you probably won’t look for any other Montenegrin beaches further.
