All About Mussels
How about a nice boat trip to a private pier for some fresh mussels, and wine? This is an authentic, small mussels farm on the bay with a little pier perfect for some down time on the water. Have a swim, relax or learn how to make mussels the local way.
After visit to a magnificent Our Lady of the Rocks church/island, your main stop will be a private little mussels farm on the south facing end of the bay, where you will have opportunity to learn about mussel harvest, see how they get cleaned and learn how to cook them, the montenegrin way. Local red or white wine, along with your fresh meal, will make this unique lunch experience one you will fondly remember for years to come.
