Igalo (Игало) is a town next to Herceg-Novi which is accessible via the E65/E80 North headed to Dubrovnik, Croatia and 570km from Sokobanja. According to the 2003 Census, it has a population of 3,754. Igalo and Herceg Novi are only administratively divided, as there is no clear division between the towns.
Located on the slopes of Mount Orjen, Igalo is regionally famous for the "DR Simo Milošević" Institute, a Mediterranean themed health spa which formerly attracted many tourists. Architect Aleksandar Đorđevic built this Institute. The institute is one of the unique hospitals and spas in the Balkans. Though the effects of the Yugoslav Wars limited Igalo's attractiveness as a tourist destination, it nonetheless remains a popular resort for tourists from the surrounding region.
Former Yugoslav leader Tito had his summer villa in this town. This villa was subsequently used to host the last Milošević-Tuđman meeting in September 1991.
