Employees in the Public Utility Inspectorate “Morsko Dobro” visit the sea area of all six coastal municipalities on a daily basis, recording any irregularities and then forwarding them to the Inspection Directorate.

June 4, 2018 - Representatives of “Morsko Dobro” stated that during the summer season, tourists could register an appeal or irregularity by calling 08000 1300 or the number for the Call Center of the National Tourism Organization (NTO).

"According to the report on activities by 'Morsko Dobro' during the tourist season last year, during the peak season at the Montenegrin beaches in July and August, the complaints were mostly related to the non-compliance of beaches with the accessories and the installation and use of scooters in the immediate vicinity of the beach," said “Morsko dobro”.

The lessees, regarding the preparation for the new season, are obliged to prepare the beaches and enable their use from 1st May, according to the contract signed with “Morsko dobro”. "A large number of Lessees have done it, and those who did not do this have received a written warning," they added. 

As far as beach and coastal infrastructure are concerned, they said that, in the spirit of socially responsible business and care for the swimmers, Pizana beach was recently restructured as an unrented part of the Montenegrin coast, where rescue services, shelves, and waste bins were installed.

"Also, through the cooperation between 'Morsko dobro' and the Municipality of Bar, in late April, construction of the Žukotrlica Promenade in Bar was continued, as well as the installation of concrete slabs and the environmental arrangement of this coastal settlement," they said. “Morsko dobro”, in accordance with the stipulated conditions and the decision of the Agency for protection of Nature and Environment, and for the purpose of making the best possible preparations for the summer tourist season, completed the action of sandy covering in the beaches of Herceg Novi in the amount of 250 cubic meters.

"The process of maintaining the sand beaches in Kotor, in the amount of 162 meters cubic, is ongoing, after which the same activities will take place in Tivat, in the amount of 100 cubic meters," they specified.

“Morsko Dobro” said that this company and the Institute of Marine Biology from Kotor realized the first activities of collection and selection of waste from the sea on the selected beaches in May, which was done within the project Welcome, INTERREG IPA cross-border cooperation program for Italy, Albania and Montenegro.

"Actions for collecting and sorting waste are carried out by predefined transitions on the parts of Velika plaza in Ulcinj, Bečići beach in Budva and Igalo beach in Herceg Novi, which represent the first ones in a series of actions to be realized six times during the realization of the project," “Morsko dobro” concluded.

The waste from these beaches, as added, are picked selectively to allow for the recycling of materials such as wood, plastic, glass, and aluminum.

In coordination with “Morsko dobro”, the non-governmental organizations (NGOs) Porat Budva and the lessor of Luka Budva, organized an action on May 26th to clean the sea bottom in the port and around the town's basin near Pizana.
