Budva Riviera Summer Beach Makeover

When we arrived in Montenegro in March, the beaches of the Budva Riviera looked a lot like this.

Beginning in April, the beaches went through a transformation befitting of its own Extreme Beach Makeover reality show. Adam and I would walk miles of beach everyday and watch people hard at work – removing litter and rocks, building platforms and lifeguard towers, varnishing beach chairs and side tables, setting up swim lanes, changing stations and showers – transforming the beaches from gorgeous and serene – but neglected – to shiny, busting beach resorts.

I took hundreds of pictures of this transformation in April and May and want to share some of my favorites:

By early June, things started coming together and the beaches we had known months before were now unrecognizable.

 Here are a couple of before/after shots – one of a beach and the other a beach side restaurant:

 As we won’t be in Montenegro for the summer we’ll miss the final phase of this makeover. It’s for the best though – we’ve always been more partial to beaches like this anyway:
