With its circular shape, solid rocks and its high walls fortified with bars and strong doors, Mamula discouraged any attempt of escape from the island. Its beauty from the inside covers what was hidden on the inside, a concentration camp ful of fear and terror

Mamula(also known as Lastavica, eng: Swallow) is an uninhabited islet in the Adriatic Sea, within the southwestern Montenegrin municipality of Herceg Novi. It was built in 1853 by Austro-Hungarian general Lazar Mamula.
Mamula is located between Prevlaka and Luštica peninsulas at the entrance to the Boka Kotorska bay. This small islet is of circular shape, and has 200m in diameter. It is 3.4 nautical miles (6.3 km) away from Herceg Novi. The islet resembles Alcatraz in San Francisco (USA) and the it very much had the same role in the past. The beauty of the island is intoxicating. The warm air, the clear waters surrounding the islet and the relievo under the water surface and the structure of the Fort on Mamula make this islet a must see for every visitor of Montenegro.

How to get to Mamula?

The only way to Mamula is to take a tour boat from any of the towns in Boka Bay (Bay of Kotor).
There are also tour boats from farther places like Budva as well but for now we have no information
regarding how often you can get a boat from Budva to Mamula.
From either direction, Herceg Novi or Budva, Mamula is onlz one stop on the way to the famous beach Žanjic.
All boats take tourists from the boarding location to the beach Žanjic and make a round trip to the fort Mamula
and the blue cave.

Price:
Herceg Novi – Žanjic 5-7€/Person – Round trip
Herceg Novi – Žanjic 3-4€/Person – One direction

Mamula is a beautiful islet and its terrain is very convenient for recreational diving or hiking. The outside ring of rocks can be fun to walk on but there are some rough spots and it is not advised to make a round walk around the islet after midday because the sun radiation is to high and there is a great risk of sunburn.
