Blue Horizon beach

Our favourite beach is on the Lustica penninsula - a golden horseshoe of sand with the cleanest, clearest, shallowest sea imaginable. There was a Soviet era hotel behind the beach which long ago fell into disrepair. Now a Qatari hotel group is developing a luxury resort there, marking the end to the olive tree studded backdrop to the beach. Montenegro is understandably eager to capitalise on its gorgeous natural settings - but one can't help but hope so much building work doesn't ruin its charm.
