My girlfriend & I are taking a short trip to Montenegro in June for seven days. We are staying at Hotel Sato in Sutomore and really want to experience as much of Montenegro as possible in the short time we're there.
Budget is irrelevant, as if it is worth doing then we shall do it!
Ideally we want to relax as much as possible and truly switch off, but not by just laying on the beach all the time! Walking, excursions & must see's are what we're looking for + local tips etc.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, I'd love to hear your thoughts.
Thank you in advance.
Montenegro is a beautiful part of the world, you guys will have a blast.
We passed through Montenegro on a road trip through the Balkans last September. We started at Plitvice Lakes National Park in north Croatia and stopped in Mostar on our way into Montenegro. We stayed overnight in Kotor Old Town (Kotor Stari Grad), which I highly recommend. It's a beautiful bay and has some swimming spots nearby.

We also stopped off in Bar for lunch, but we found it to be very touristy.
Friends we know stayed in Kamp Grad in Grab. They loved it and said "the staff are awesome, its in the middle of nowhere, the surroundings are the best".
We didn't stay long in Montenegro, but we did spend three days at a camp site in Lake Skadar in north Albania. It was plenty of fun and quite off the beaten track if you are in to that thing.
I hope this helps :)
