I could see the light creeping in from around my sleep mask. It was a sunny day. I even awakened an hour before my alarm. I prepared breakfast in my kitchenette and decided on a plan.

I decided to head south to Lake Skodra near the border with Albania. There was a different Montenegro to see in this place. From there I would see where the day would take me.

Near Sveti Stefan, there is a village, Milocer, that I was unable to reach the other day so, today, I tried again. I was successful in finding a place to park near the highway so that I could climb down to the beach and still be able to easily leave, when ready.  

Once it was just a sleepy fishing village, now a crescent of heaven with a view of Budva across the water and Sveti Stefan to the south.

I found a stairway that lead down through some olive trees. Along the path, there were 2 donkeys tied up and not so happy about it. I continued down the path and found the beach. What a cute place. The crescent cove was filled with turquoise water and even a tiny island with ancient ruins. I walked along the beach and enjoyed the view which stretched all the way to Budva, I then continued on.

I stopped at the same scenic overlook to view Sveti Stefan. It was even more fascinating on this sunny day.

Near Petrovac, I headed inland and up into the mountains, saying goodbye to the coastal road. On the way inland, I did stop several times at scenic spots to catch more of Montenegro’s sculptured coastline. The beach at Buljarica looked amazing with its massive wall of mountain to one side and a tiny little pyramid of an island just off its tip. It is still an untouched gem of the Adriatic coast with its unique sandy beach stretching for more than 2,250m.
