Driving, public and private transport
Lustica is not all that well served by public transport and a car is almost a necessity. It is advisable to drive slowly on the Lustica peninsula. While on the main roads it is also advisable to drive slowly and observe speed limits, pedestrian crossings and such things. The police are often around checking speeds, and ensuring proper road rules are observed. Breaking the local driving laws can often mean an on the spot fine, or a tiresome trip to the police station.
There are also some interesting transport possibilities that do not involve using your car. There is a bus that passes the village a couple of times a day going to Rosa, which a thrice daily small boat crosses to Herzeg Novi for about 3 euro per person. Herzeg Novi is the main administrative centre for the western part of Lustica. Going by boat can be more convenient, interesting and relaxing than driving. It is a lot quicker too. Herzeg Novi is a very interesting town with castles, houses and other features from Turkish, Spanish, French, Italian and Austro Hungarian occupations. There is also a fresh food market there. If you miss the boat, a private one can be hired for about 15E to make the short crossing. Boats can also be taken from Mirista and Zanicje beaches to Herzeg Novi, Igalo, Tivat and Budva- day trips using boat transport can be mush more enjoyable then driving. Just make sure to ask what time the boat is returning !! Small boat trips to the island can also be arranged locally. Worth seeing are the impressive Austro Hungarian sea fort of Mamula, (where there are nice beaches as well) or closer by Island Church of our Lady; the famous blue cave, (Spilje Plava) as well as to some restaurants and secluded beaches that can only be accessed by boat.
