Rivijera of Ulcinj

This small islet is of circular shape, and is 200m in diameter. It is 3.4 nautical miles (6.3 km) away from Herceg Novi. While the fort has deteriorated the island is still visited by boats, mainly from Herceg Novi, and is a popular one-day trip destination. The island beaches are very pleasant.
