April 27, 2018 - Unseen from the road, this lovely beach is a favorite summer place of Kotor citizens. The beach is located on the way from Kotor to Perast right at the Drazin Vrt village. Slow down while driving as not to miss a small 17th-century tower surrounded by a laurel grove. This is Bajova kula – Bajo’s tower – built by the legendary Montenegrin hero Bajo Pivljanin for a short but peaceful rest and recovery between the many battles against the Ottoman army.

The gravel beach is about 60m long and is amazingly clean and well-conditioned. For last five years, the beach management improved the tiny resort, adding comfortable sunbeds with reasonable distance from a tree-covered terrace overlooking the sea. At the time of the rush hour, there is an option to relax with some refreshing drinks at the beach bar's shadowed terrace while you wait for a free sunbed.

The sea here has a specific feature and remains colder than the average in the bay, even in the hottest time of the summer. This is because the sources of the nearby mountains mix with the coastal waters, refreshing them constantly. A convenient beach location facing south allows the guests at Bajova Kula to avoid sunburns from an afternoon swim.

The restaurant located in the historical tower offers a small but smart Mediterranean menu and local wines. Tree crowns divide the beach zone from the dining terrace, bringing peace and a soft shadow.

In addition to pontoons, you can also berth a boat and take a trip around the bay.

Two important tips: in the peak season, book the sunbed in advance and if you’re not planning on an early morning swim, be ready for few parking options!
