Video: Biking Along Bay of Kotor in Perast, Montenegro


The video above is from an afternoon spent biking along the Bay of Kotor in the lovely old town of Perast, Montenegro. I really loved Perast and it’s one of those incredibly quiet spots where you forget about the stresses of the world. It’s not a large place but it’s right along the bay and it has all sorts of little restaurants on the waters edge. If you do go, I suggest you rent a bike like we did for next to nothing as it’s a great way to see the place.

Also, don’t just show up but make an afternoon or a day of it. Grab some bikes and have a backpack with what you’ll need. Go for a swim, then find something to eat at one of the restaurants along the bay or simply pack a picnic. When I brought my mom to Montenegro, this was one of the places I wanted to show her but when we first arrived it was raining and when we made it back to Montenegro we were tired and she had a long flight the next day.


Getting to Perast is easy as it’s only a few minutes by car from the town of Kotor. You can also access it by boats that leave from Kotor should one wish. If you’ve got a car you could also easily make a day trip to Perast from the Budva Riviera as it’s only a ~30 minute drive. My advice would be to make it a day trip to visit both Perast and Kotor if you have a car. If you don’t have a car and traveling around by bus, maybe spend a night or so in Kotor and spend one of the days / afternoons lounging by the bay in Perast.

Big thanks to my friends at Budva Travel for their hospitality, great times hanging with them.

Tips hat,

  1. Love that scenery over there Rob. Looks bloody fantastic! And liking the videos you’re making, too. A nice hint of comedy in there to make it more than just a good scene.

    This is exactly what I’ll be doing in a few weeks up and over Singaraja. Bikes is the best way to get a good look on everything at a steady place 🙂

    Cheers Rob, giving it a tweet,


    1. Indeed, I’m enjoying the whole process of making the videos as well; they just take so long to edit! That said, with practice everything gets easier.

      Thanks for the tweet & feedback and looking forward to seeing some of your videos in the coming weeks. Bikes are great for a few reasons including the fact you can get some smooth footage instead of the walking wobble.
