Bar – At the beginning of the century for this swimming resort people used to tell that its is a Bar reply to Dubrovnik Skaline. Rocky beach on Utjeha in the meantime has not just established itself in a recognizable and original swimming resort on Bar Riviera, but it has also become a trademark of the Cave of olives whose unusual beauty through numerous videos it promotes all over the planet.
By opening for tourists a new direction on our coast between Bar and Ulcinj, on whose middle it is located, Rocky beach welcomes summer 2007 in new appearance. Hard working owner Dragan Medo Djurovic gave his best to improve the offer of the swimming resort, so the central terrace of 730 square meters, in whose center the pool is located, has been decorated with the co-called Bo night which to the renewed pool gives and unusual contrast glow. Starting from this summer the pool enables night swimming. For this season below Rocky beach they have made a new sandy beach with bringing of over 1.000 cubes of sand, and the beach will have a rescuer.
Special attention of the host was given to green areas. Gardens of Rocky beach are rarely nice and maintained which with the series of plaque was confirmed by Tourist organization of Bar.
– We have proven with that that on the non-water area, on the foam of the sea you can make something beautiful as this. All of that, with our entire offer, has become recognizable all over the world, and our greatest satisfaction is that from year to year same guests are coming back here bringing their friends with them. That at the same time is the greatest possible advertising, our visitors know that they are welcome here and that they will come across a great communication with our stuff, in a real friendly environment – says the owner of the restaurant.
Since 2001 the specialty of Rocky beach, beside the architectonic milieu is the quality of the service for the guests. Trademark of the swimming resort is waiter duo Zajo and Sejo who, no matter the youth, already have experience and reputation which their colleagues in renowned Mediterranean facilities of similar type would want to have in. Two of them receive, serve and escort each guest with smile no matter the temper of the guest.
– The season for sure will be great, the best in the decade, you can freely write that down. Situation is steaming from the fifth of July, Americans are arriving in the middle of July, but here there are a lot of guests from Germany, Serbia, Russia, and of course our people from Bar. It is hard to say who are the best guests, owners like to say that those are the ones who spend the most, and here everyone likes to show off! Most of work we have in the rush hours from 13 to 18h, at that time we don’t have space on the tearrce for a towel, and an easy chair is more asked for in the afternoon – says Zajo Kolar, who is on Rocky Beach from the first day when it was opened.
His colleague too Sejo Zudjelovic is expecting a full season:
– Majority of work is usually at the end of July and at the beginning of August, and at that time here it is most beautiful. We have a lot of old guests who come back here gladly, we already know who wants what, we serve also down on the beach. Everyone likes it best around the pool, and the most gallant guests are foreigners and our people from Bar – says Sejo adding that the real crowd will start in about “twenty days”.
Everything is already ready on “Rocky beach”. Easy chairs on leased 30 meters of the beach of Utjeha are exclusively made of natural material, parasols are next to easy chairs and they are located on all terraces. Central bar is complemented with new contents and it follows the demands of the guests; kitchen has been enriched; in the shadow of the woods on tables guests can play cards, domino or chess. Kids for this summer along with the children swimming pool also got a playground with entire equipment, and in the children section we have a teacher so parents can relax.
– Those are all novelties, and only prices remained same as last year.
We now have the offer for staying from dusk till dawn, but about 20 guests from here go in the facilities where they are accommodated, outside of Utjeha. A twist in this filed can bring an adopted plan of “Morsko dobro” which for Utjeha, which has been recognized among seven tourist destinations, announces accommodation capacities in the shape of several new hotels. Except for that, we hope that in two three years we will round up our offer with accommodation and real sea cuisine. The real Mediterranean cooking program on the coast should finally win the primacy in the menu against kebab and hamburgers, and at the moment we are not yet in that position – says Djurovic.
The yelling of cheerful kids who are enjoying in the pool encircles his story. Little children from Bar Jelena, Stefan, Luka, and Jasmin in unison say “Great” when asked what’s the fun like here?
Their swimming with miles is observed by Tom from Detroit, a born American who with his girl Anne is visiting the east coast of the Adriatic.
I have shown the boys how to jump. Here it s really nice, I haven’t expected something like this – says Tom.
A bit further from him, at the lowest level are Milena and Pavle from Podgorica who are enjoying in peace before, as they say, July crowd.
Beside them on easy chairs are spouses our people who live in Switzerland, youth from Bar, Russians…
– The swimming resort is made in such way that not even in the high season a guest can feel that the place is too crowded. Our special quality is a great parking lot, from the turning pint from the highway to the entrance in the sea or visitors don’t need more than three to four minutes, because there can’t be problems with the parking. As the electrification of the nearby Veliki pijesak began, we hope that that action in accordance with the local authorities they will continue towards Utjeha. Else, in May we were visited by people from regional waterworks, and there are announcements that until 2020 we can expect that Utjeha will get a waterworks system, because the water now is brought in cisterns – concluded Djurovic.
CONNCETED RUSSIANS AND AMERICANS
For Djurovic they say that he has made a unique achievement – in one place in Montenegro he connected the Russians and the Americans. With that people allude on the fact that the guests of Rocky beach are both numerous Russians who in the past year have bought a lot of houses in the surrounding, and our Americans, people from Mrkojevici whop live and work in Chicago, New York, and Detorit, and they spend their vacation at home.
THIS YEAR TOO STARTS OF EX YU
With renowned disc jockeys entertaining life of Rocky beach this summer too will be enriched with gigs of numerous stars from Ex Yu areas, and Rocky beach will give its contribution to new “Nights of Utjeha” at the beginning of August. The swimming resort for two years in a row was the winner of gold medals in its category at the international fair of tourism in Novi Sad, and the videos about Rocky beach were emitted also on the Tourism fair in Moscow.
