Ulcinj is the southernmost town on the Montenegrin coast. It has the longest sandy beach of the country (Velika Plaza or "Long beach", 12 km)  and several other smaller beaches, including Mala Plaza or "Little Beach". There is a medieval castle in Ulcinj's old town. With a 3 km sandy beach, seafood restaurants, a nudist camp, and kitesurfing sports, Ada Bojana, is another popular tourist attraction of the area. It is an island formed by the delta of Bojana River near Ulcinj,

The Spanish writer Miguel de Cervantes who wrote the novel "Don Quixote " was a captive in Ulcinj for 5 years. As the town was then called Cita di Dolcinio, Cervantes gave his hero of "Don Quixote" a lover Dulcinea who was named after the city. A square in the city where slaves were traded is known as
Cervantes Square.
