Pakistani travelers and adventure seekers now have the chance to experience an unusual life in the heart of Europe. As the world’s first marina with platinum status, Porto Montenegro is the perfect destination for this winter. With its idyllic location on the Adriatic Sea in the UNESCO-protected Bay of Kotor, proximity to three international airports, 450 marinas, pristine mountains for skiing and year-round sunshine, it appeals to residents, boat owners, charterers and guests alike during the off-season months.
Porto Montenegro welcomes the yachting community and fills them with a variety of berth benefits during the winter. The award-winning marina offers access to some of the best sailing spots in the Mediterranean, such as the Croatian archipelago and Greece, with average highs of 21 ° in October – which only drop to an average of 13 ° in December – and more, with 280 days of sunshine a year, it is the ideal Place to enjoy Europe’s most impressive natural beauties all year round. A three-hour drive from Boka Bay is Tara Canyon, the second deepest canyon in the world, as well as Lake Skadar on the border between Montenegro and Albania, the largest lake in southern Europe and an untouched wilderness that is often overlooked on the tourist trail.
In Porto Montenegro itself there are many restaurants and international shops to discover. A new venue, Onyx Bar & Garden by Beluga, recently opened in Regent Porto Montenegro – a five-star hotel with over 120 luxurious suites and apartments. For gourmets, Forza Porto offers authentic Boka delicacies with a modern and sophisticated touch, while the sister restaurants Marea in the village of Town Quay and Panorama by the PMYC Pool combine traditional Mediterranean cuisine with a mix of northern Montenegrin-inspired culinary specialties and meat dishes, and specially curated wines. Shopping highlights include a Dior flagship and a Five Star fashion boutique that houses luxury brands such as Ralph Lauren, La Martina and Gant.
In the heart of Porto Montenegro’s sailing scene is the Porto Montenegro Yacht Club (PMYC), where members can enjoy a members lounge and five-star hospitality, with an on-site restaurant and bar, night club, sailing and rowing facilities, gym and tennis courts as well as a 64m PMYC pool.
Porto Montenegro achieved worldwide recognition for the first time for its first-class superyacht marina, which is designed for the advanced needs of all yachts, their owners, guests and crews – with a specific infrastructure for the largest yachts on the water. With flexible berth packages and tax-free fuel among the many advantages, the marina offers the most modern facilities and infrastructures paired with excellent service. A new shipyard will be opened shortly, offering repair and conversion options for superyachts, which increases the attractiveness of the marina as a great winter berth.
The choice for both life and work in Porto Montenegro offers an unparalleled lifestyle and financial opportunity against the backdrop of sun, sky and azure seas. Investing in a hotel-run unit in the new Boka Place district enables owners to acquire Montenegrin citizenship. Aside from being a great vacation destination in the heart of Europe, other benefits of Montenegrin citizenship include global mobility with visa-free access to 124 nations, no obligation to give up current citizenship (unless requested by the country of origin); in addition, the country is already a NATO member and a candidate country for future EU enlargement, which is expected by 2025. And as if that wasn’t enough – those working in Montenegro benefit from one of the lowest personal, corporate and capital gains tax rates in Europe, euro currency and avoidance of double taxation through agreements with over 40 countries.
