The customs quay at Zelenika from W

Zelenika is the first port of entry for a yacht entering Montenegro from N, lying in the outer bay, the Hercegnovski Zaliv, of the Gulf of Kotor, around 1.5 miles E of the harbour of Herceg Novi. The customs quay here is open 24 hours a day during the summer and daily from 0700 to 1900 outside the season. All formalities can be completed here, including purchasing a vignette (cruising permit). The quay is high and fendered with big black fenders and is not a place to linger, especially in bad weather. In strong southerly winds, the quay is actually dangerous, and in such conditions the harbour authorities should be contacted by telephone (382 31 6782760) for permission to clear in at Kotor or Porto Montenegro instead.
