May, 2011.

The world's newest country has a lot to offer tourists, and time is running out if you want to get there before the rush really begins.


With 270km of Adriatic coast, Montenegro represents one of the most unique visitor opportunities in the world - a place where the country's early history is still being written, close enough to be a viable holiday destination for Europeans, and a safe place to visit.

This week, the World Travel and Tourism Council predicted that it will be the fastest-growing tourism economy in the world, with hotel projects already underway from Banyan Tree, Kempinski and Hilton International.

Air Berlin also announced a new connection to the country this week, and both EasyJet and Ryanair are said to be considering the idea, adding competition to the routes already offered by Montenegro Airlines (http://www.montenegroairlines.com/) - so if you want to get there before the rush, here's what to do in this surprising country.

See the mountains. Most visitors currently visit the country for the beaches, but activities such as hiking, biking, water rafting and trekking are rapidly gaining in popularity.

Mingle with the wealthy. The new Porto Montenegro 'integrated resort' and marina is an attempt to brand Montenegro the new Monaco - Russian oligarchs, models and politicians party here both on and off their yachts.

Sunbathe. The beaches of Budva are popular with sunseekers - the peninsula boasts 21 km of coastline with 17 beaches on the Adriatic Sea.

Visit the lakes. Forget England's Lake District - Montenegro's lakes offer stunning views and an impressive collection of wildlife, including several species endemic to the country.

Visit a World Heritage Site. Kotor made UNESCO's exclusive list for a reason. It's one of the best preserved medieval towns in the region and contains plenty of historical artifacts for the history-loving visitor to appreciate.

Sample Loza. Montenegro's national drink is "Loza" brandy, a chilled form of Grappa which makes a delicious aperitif (although it's very strong).

Porto Montenegro Marina is located in the bay of Kotor in Montenegro, the largest natural harbor in the Adriatic, the Marina is also just a few miles from Tivat International Airport. It’s interesting to note that it was home to a Communist-era naval base, and that Kotor is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with a walled city. The Porto Montenegro developers included modern-day facilities such as pool decks in the courtyards of the residences however also kept the historic elements of the architecture in mind.

The new marina includes the Porto Montenegro Yacht Club and some reminders of the region’s history such as an old dockyard crane was restored, that now sits at the edge of the main jetty. A maritime museum will be added in the future, showcasing other finds.

183 berths in the marina are available so far, including 89 for megayachts. Eventually there will be more than 600 spaces for yachts and superyachts, with about 25 percent devoted to superyachts alone. The largest yacht that can be accommodated: 100 meters (328 feet).
