Ulcinj (Cyillic: Улцињ, Albanian: Ulqin or Ulqini) is the most southern coastal town of Montenegro.
Ulcinj is the southern most major town along the Montenegrin coast before reaching the border with Albania. Well over a majority of the population of Ulcinj is ethnic Albanian. Together with the town of Tuzi it is one of the two major population centers of Albanians in Montenegro. Due to the town's nice location on the coast it is a major tourist destination of much of the Albanian population of Kosovo.
Ulcinj is a small city, you will have no problem getting around by foot. The bus station is a good 40 minute walk from the old town of Ulcinj by the coast.

There is an old castle overlooking the sea. Stari grad (old town) is worth a visit though sadly destroyed and not fully restored since a large earthquake in 1979.
Ulcinj is a splendid central location for exploring Montenegro's South Coast region (from Bar to Skader Lake to Ada Bojana) and parts of Albania. The Ulcinj South Coast region boasts some of the most interesting adventure, historic and eco tours, and vacation beach stays in all of the Adriatic.
There are good beach spots in the area, including some rocky ones in the southern part of town. The longest sandy beach in Montenegro, Velika Plaza, is located near by. At the Southern end of this 14km-long beach there is Ada Bojana , a triangular island with very nice beaches, formed where the Bojana river meets the Adriatic Sea. The island is a favourite spot for kitesurfers and windsurfers and it has a large a nudist beach for those so inclined. There are minibuses that take you from the market on Skenderbeu Ave in Ulcinj to Velika Plaza and even to Ada Bojana (if there are at least 3 people going there).
Near the beach stalls sell kebab and hamburgers.
Note that the fish restaurants calculate the price per 1 kg of raw fish. Example: One raw fish is about 500-600 grams, but when cleaned and cooked, it's around 200 grams. You get charged for 500-600 grams.
Accommodation are plentiful in Ulcinj, ranging from resort hotels to private accommodations. The resort hotels in Ulcinj are each in the process of renovation and reconstruction, as most have been recently privatized from former government agencies. Lodging costs range from full-service rooms at 50 EUR per person (or more) down to the many unlicensed/unregulated private accommodations costing in the range of 10-25 EUR.
There are at least twice-daily departures to Shkodra in Albania, making a stop at the border and at the furgon station of Shkodra, before making it to the city centre. In the furgon station by the Shkodra bridge and castle, furgons for Tirana and Durres will be waiting.
