Montenegro is a country you do not hear much about for kiteboarding yet it’s a frequented spot for those who seek new kiting destinations. Overall it is quite a small country with more inland land than coast. Filled with mountain ranges, medieval towns, rivers, wild animals and strips of coastal beaches which some of them are within kiting conditions.
If you want to visit a new destination that has interesting activities off the water as it has on between the months of May and October - consider Montenegro. Specifically Ulcinj which is the main kite town in Montenegro with 13km strip of beach and various kiteboarding centers.
