This village, located just a few minutes from Stevi Stefan, is popular among French tourists and has retained a quaint sort of charm. Venetian stone houses overlook this pretty little fishing harbour, which is surrounded by pine trees and cypresses. The setting here is typical of the fishing villages of the Adriatic coast.
The beach of Petrovac is lined with a promenade that is great for some lovely walks. The setting is enchanting, with a bay surrounded by mountains, a mysterious island off the coast, and a Venetian castle on the western end of the beach. The pedestrian promenade is full of bars, restaurants, terraces and typical stone houses.

Petrovac is ideally located for an excursion to visit Albania, which is less than an hour away. To go for a swim or just relax, head to the beach club at the far end of the beach. Here you will find deckchairs and parasols on a stone terrace. The snack bar, built against the cliff, offers stunning views of the sea and the coast that runs towards Albania on one side and the bay of Petrovac on the other. You can rent paddle boats.
The quality of the sand at the Petrovac beach leaves a lot to be desired, as it consists mostly of orange-coloured gravel and pebbles. We recommend you wear sandals on the beach. This beach is not great for swimming either, due to the waves, the current, and the lack of a lifeguard or even a flag. Even though beach is very long, the distance between the promenade and the water is limited so there isn't much space for laying out towels, which is an issue in July and August when the beach is packed.
The Oliva restaurant at the Rivijera hotel proposes gourmet Mediterranean cuisine prepared by one of the most famous chefs in Montenegro.
