Features of the weather
If we proceed from weather conditions, you can confidently say that the official holiday season begins in May. But not everything is as simple as it may seem.

To come to Sutomore itself from the airport or get somewhere, it is worth using regular buses or a train (from Podgorica). A number of routes connecting the main centers of the country and coastal resorts are laid through Sutomore. Taxi services are also in demand, although they are more expensive.
Judging by estimates of holidaymakers, a visit to Sutomore is great for family leisure. Airborne transfer does not exceed 30 or 40 minutes even with strong roads. The path runs almost on the shore. Therefore, children will distract an excellent view that opens from the windows of the car.
Important! Rent apartments on the first line is very expensive – bets start from 35 euros. Since in the peak of the Sutomore season is crowded, we advise you to attend the beaches on the outskirts of the city.
On the main urban beach, you will be able to “take a position”, only if you set up “no light zarya, that is, about 8 am. Note that it is not recommended to sunbathe between 11 and 16 hours – then the sun is the most dangerous, especially for children.

For lovers long swim better ride in Sutomore in July-August. The rest of the time the water is a little colder. But the evening weather at the end of the summer is characterized as suitable for walking along the embankments and to visit the coastal bar. Note that the bathing is recommended to use special durable shoes, as the bottom, as a rule, is stony, and there is a possibility to step on the sea hedgehog.
The beaches and the surroundings of the coastal town are pretty clean. Travelers noted that the sutomore restaurants correspond only by the lower level by European standards. It is worth considering that the beaches and embankments are located downstairs, and all housing – at high places. Therefore, getting to the hotel from the sea is not too comfortable, if you still have to move the stroller with children.
It is worth considering that the beaches where the music played, rent inventory at higher prices than the “quiet” sites.
Powered in Sutomore at a very high level. The difference in quality and prices in individual institutions is almost absent. Especially good estimates are given to the restaurant “Reliv”, from where you can see the sea. Ride the resort after September 15, which is understandable, not recommended.
Reviews noted that the weather is often unpredictable at this time.
If a big family is going in Sutomore with children, it is more profitable for her and practical to stop at the hotel, but in the apartment. From entertainment for children’s rest is good for the moon park near the embankment. Youth audience will be satisfied with water entertainment, travel on scooter and excursions. Experts advise visit local open-air discos. The resort is recommended for solid people, and for the elderly holidaymakers in need of measured leisure.
Important! It is worth being prepared for the fact that beach accessories (for example, towels) will not give any beaches or in hotels.Therefore, it is necessary or carrying them with you or buying on the spot.
Summing up, you can say so: Sutomore is a resort for those who do not want to overpay. Conditions are rather similar to the Black Sea coast. What is important, the locals in their mass speak Russian, especially those who work in tourism.
