Beach “Galija”, located on St. Stefan in Budva and considered to be one of the most exclusive on the Montenegrin coast, has been hit for the second time in the last half-year by a severe weather storm, which has caused enormous damage.
Damages is over € 100,000
“Galija's” executive director, Nikola Novakovic, said the damage was estimated at more than 100,000 euros. He added that many owners of beaches on the Montenegrin coast are in a similar situation.
"Most importantly, no one was hurt. We tried to save some of the inventory, but unfortunately, we failed. The damage is huge," Novakovic said.
Devastated Beach bar
As he points out, this is the second time in the last six months that such an accident has hit them, and the fifth one in the last few years.
"The enormous amount of hard work and effort, as well as the huge financial resources that have been invested in making the beach one of the most elite, both in Budva and on the entire Montenegrin coast, has been destroyed. I hope that the Municipality of Budva and JP Morsko dobro will support us and that there is an emergency fund for situations, such as this one," Novakovic points out.
New toilets destroyed
He adds that the damage will be repaired and that next season, their guests will be greeted as they are used to and how they deserve.
"It will take a long time for the damage caused to be adequately repaired and the beach returned to its original condition. We were unable to secure the inventory, because the insurance companies do not insure the facilities near the sea, and I hope that the state will support not only me but everyone who is affected by this storm, "he concludes.
Although the most popular beach in Budva is almost destroyed, Novakovic assures all fans of Galija who express their concern these days that they will do their best to enable them to enjoy this ambience next season with the same quality as before.

The wind farm’s capacity is46 MW and is worth €90 million. Ministers agreed that this act was a confirmation of stable cooperation between the two countries.
“The fact that mostly state-owned energy company, from the EU member state, has recognized the potential of this project is the best confirmation that we created a favorable environment. When prudent investors come to Montenegro, we don’t need another promotion”, said Ms Sekulić.
Her Maltese counterpart said that his Government “recognized energy sector as of key pillars of the economy”.
“Construction of this mega-project took three years. The project encompasses 8,5 km of newly-built roads. Challenges were numerous but we managed to overcome them all. This project brought our countries closer to one another”, said Mr Mizzi.
Both ministers pointed out the importance of the fact that this energy is green.
Montenegro’s minister said that Mozura confirmed that further development in green energy was possible and, in fact, more favorable.
“Mozura gives us cause for optimism. It is particularly important for Montenegro’s energy sector and economy in general that this project was completed shortly after its construction stagnated for several years thanks to Enemalte involvement”, said Ms Sekulić.
Ms Sekulić wished investors successful work and good wind.
Mozura wind farm is a production facility with 46 MW of production power capacity. It consists of 23 individual windmills (2 MW of power).
The investment was implemented by Enemalta, Maltese state company and Malta Montenegro wind Park company, headquartered in Malta.
The second-largest wind farm in Montenegro will produce 120 GWH of energy annually.
By virtue of the amendments to the regulation on ways of promoting renewable energy resources, the functioning of Mozura won’t affect electricity bills in Montenegro.
