Book now for an Adriatic summer beach holiday in unspoiled Montenegro.

The best way of getting to Montenegro is via its more upbeat neighbour Croatia. Fly to Dunbrovnik and pick up a rental car. Thomson Airways (0871 231 4787, www.thomson.co.uk/flights) offers flights direct to Dubrovnik from London Gatwick, Manchester and Birmingham throughout the summer, with return fares from just £179, reports the Daily Mail, and you can check out Gulliver Travel (www.gulliver.hr) for car hire.

Head for the Gulf of Kotor, a 15-mile-long fjord with white limestone walls rising to 6,000ft at their highest point. It’s the jewel of Montenegro’s coast. Kotor itself, is a small walled Venetian-Gothic city, with pavement bars and restaurants and a beautiful Byzantine cathedral which dates back to the 9th Century.

Or go south to Przno where the beaches are some of the best you will find and its harbor is picturesque and home to some tempting waterside restaurants. The nearby island of Sveti Stefan with its impressive Venetian architecture, attached to the mainland by a causeway and Bar Stari Grad, a semi-ruined Ottoman city, are also well worth a visit.
