The Red Beach – Montenegro, Europe


TheRed Beach is situated in an inlet between Sutomore and Bar. It was named afterthe extreme red colour of the sand or stone pebbles which cover the beach andthe sea bottom. It is 1,000 m long with a dense pine forest in its background.It is very distinctive because of the unusual harmony of the colors of the sea,red sand and pine forest. It is a favorite bathing beach of the local people.There is a legend which says, that the nymphs of Nereida used to gather at thetop of the high cliff over the beach and comb their hair with coral combs.Their laughter and singing could be heard far away from there, but nobody couldtalk about it, because if they did, they would become mute.
