At Porto Montenegro, we believe that a place is made by its people. At the water’s edge, our village is filled with the laughter and activity of a community united in their pursuit of a life less ordinary. Here are found the explorers, the creatives, the visionaries, the tycoons, the literati, the entrepreneurs, the artists and the muses. Here are the Portonians.
Described best as ‘liveaboards’, digital nomads and keen adventurers, Vu and Bella are both from Seattle in the USA and have been visiting Porto Montenegro for four years. Last year, they made the decision to call our marina their winter home.
- How long have you been visiting Porto Montenegro?
We’ve visited Montenegro and Porto Montenegro off and on for 4 years, but only in the last year have we made Porto Montenegro the home base for our boat.
- How long do you stay here at a time?
Our boat is in Porto Montenegro in the off-season, which usually means about 7 months, and we try to stay on board for that duration, except for some trips to visit family and friends, but generally a little less than 6 months a year and usually the winter season.
- In your view, what is the most extraordinary thing about Porto Montenegro?
It is hard to pick one thing. Porto Montenegro is a beautiful marina that is impeccably run at a high standard with a village filled with great retail and excellent restaurants and bars, but really if there is one thing, it is the people who call Porto Montenegro and the community around it home.
- What is your favorite thing to do at Porto Montenegro?
We have many places we enjoy in Porto Montenegro. We love sitting in the sun with friends on the waterfront enjoying a morning latte or brunch, especially at places like Gourmet Corner, Ma Cherie, or Kafeteria. Although we find ourselves hanging out at Clubhouse or Blue Room just as much in the evening with a cocktail enjoying the music and occasionally a game of billiards or foosball.
