Ada Bojana (pronounced [ǎːda bɔ̌jana]; Island Bojana) is an island in the Ulcinj Municipality in Montenegro. The name Ada means island in Turkish.

The island is created by a river delta of the Bojana River. Legend says it was formed by gathering river sand around a ship sunk at the mouth of Bojana river, but it is more likely to be a delta in formation. It is located on the southernmost tip of Montenegro, with only the Bojana river separating it from Pulaj and Velipojë in the Albanian territory.

The island is of triangular shape, bordered from two sides by the Bojana river, and by the Adriatic Sea from the south-west. It has an area of 4.8 square km.

It is a popular tourist destination, with 3 kilometres (2 miles) long sandy beach with traditional seafood restaurants. Ada Bojana is one of the premier kitesurfing and windsurfing locations on the Adriatic Coast with strong cross onshore winds during summer afternoons. Ada Bojana's main income is from Camping

The New York Times included Ada Bojana and Montenegro's South Coast (including Velika Plaza and Hotel Mediteran) in a ranking of top travel destinations for 2010 - "Top Places to Go in 2010".[1]

Nudist Island of Bojana (Buna) is located 15 km away from Ulcinj, a heavenly island, famous for its nudist camp and untouched nature. Although in regions that are near Mediterranean parts, Ada dominates with subtropical climate. It is decorated by an extraordinary ecosystem and breathless sunset.[2]

Kitesurfing spot[edit]

Velika plaza beach, near Ulcinj in Montenegro is the premier kiteboarding location on the Adriatic Coast. Fourteen kilometres strip of petty sand beach with strong cross onshore winds almost every day during summer afternoons makes it ideal for safe learning. Set in a protected natural area, surrounded by dunes and hidden by alluvial forests you will find the perfect spot to spend summer holidays on your own, with friends or your family.

It is hard to find better and safer surrounding to learn kiteboarding than here. Shallow, warm water and constant thermal wind make learning here a pure joy. No obstacles in or out of the water. Tides don’t affect riding or safety. Current is not that strong to present any significant danger. During the summer average temperature is 34 °C, water temperature average is 23 °C. Wetsuit is a preference. Along the beach you can ride superb chop and wave conditions most of the time. Flat water spot is located at the southeast end of the beach, inside the river mouth.

There are a number of kitesurfing schools along the beach.
