Known as the Budva Riviera, Becici beach is home to the majority of the Montenegrin hotels that can be seen in travel brochures: The Queen of Montenegro, Hotel Mediteran, Hotel Montenegro, The Palace and the Ibérostar Bellevue. The most popular beach in the area, there is nothing really special about it, except for the fact that it is one comprised of sand and not pebbles, like most of the others. However, the sand is of the coarse yellow-brown variety rather than fine white powder. Well-maintained in summer, Becici beach is pleasant and equipped with plastic deckchairs (which, apart from certain hotels which have a private space, you have to pay to use) and parasols. The water here is a beautiful turquoise blue. Unfortunately, this 1.2 mile-long beach is not the most private or peaceful one on the coast; you'll just have to accept the fact that you will be sharing it with a few hundred other tourists who come here to enjoy the sea. Visitors to the area will have the opportunity to try their hand at kayaking, parasailing and pedalo boating. Far off to the left, you can see Sveti Stefan; an islet and a resort, it is one of the symbols of Montenegro. For a bit of trivia, in 1935 Paris awarded Becici the gold award for being the most beautiful beach in Europe, which is of course no longer the case today!
