Bečići is a town within the municipality of Budva. It is located south-east of Budva in a picturesque bay, surrounded by a coniferous forest and beautiful mountains and has 771 permanent residents (2003 census). It has a 1,950m long sandy beach, which is among the most beautiful beaches in Montenegro and the southern Adriatic. In 1935 it won the Grand Prix in Paris as the most beautiful beach in Europe.
Several sections of the beach are private and are only accessible to the hotel guests. In contrast to Budva’s large number of private housing units, Bečići town mostly consists of medium and large hotels. Some of them, such as the Mediteran, Iberostar Bellevue and Queen of Montenegro have been extensively refurbished, while the most significant greenfield addition was the Hotel Splendid, a luxurious five-star resort that cost 70 million euros to build.
“I have seen scenic beauties on all continents, but sunshine such as this I have seen nowhere.”
It was the choice of The Rolling Stones and Madonna as well as Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie during their stay in Montenegro.
Since Bečići is only 2 km from the Old Town of Budva, it is possible to reach Bečići from Budva by walking along the seaside promenade. During tourist season a small “auto-train” goes there until a late hour. The minibuses also stops in Bečići on their way from Budva to Petrovac and Sveti Stefan. Walking out of Bečići in the other direction, you reach the old fishing village of Rafailovići, with its pleasant cafes and restaurants.
