Between the lovely view of the Piva lake and canyon, you have a very narrow road with unfinished tunnels that add to the charm. Next to one was a lovely picnic table with a sun roof. We were on a van coming back from rafting the Tara so could not stop. But if you are planning a stop, that would be an amazing view point. The lake is kind of low right now.

Thoroughly enjoyed our day out. We travelled 2 hours at least from Kotor bay to visit the waterfall Rafting centre but it was worth it. The web site is a little tricky to understand when placing a booking. But the staff were very helpful via email and very welcoming on the day.
Breakfast and lunch is included and does the job!
We had a great day on the river which is a mixture of fast rapids and smooth flowing parts. There is an opportunity to jump into the lagoon from a large rock too.
Well worth the trip.

If you're arriving from the Montenegro side, I highly recommend doing the spectacular Pluzine to Scepan Polje drive in the morning when the morning light strikes the Mountains and cobalt waters from the east (particularly if you're a photographer).
This drive, for me, is one of the highlights of Montenegro. The light in the afternoon is very different - the water and Mountains visible from the road are in shadow. Also the final 10km to the camp is on a low-quality road - not advisable in the dark!
Now to Camp Grab and the rafting. Everything about this operation is very competently managed, from the answers to emails and phone calls to the signposts on the way in, to their staff greeting and explanation and finally their rafting guides. A fun, well co-ordinated team take you down the Piva Canyon, jumping off rocks, visiting Waterfalls and swimming along the way.
A very tasty slow-roast lamb buffet lunch follows the half-day package (which was the perfect length for us - beware the waters are chilly, even in Summer wearing the provided wetsuit). You will get wet! But that's part of the fun.

Rating down the Tara river is really something special, from adventurous experience to real 'widl beauty' which you see on your way. You may freely drink water from the river on your way.
Though the most important is to have good equipment, and a good skipper.
I've read Isabella's review, and am very sad to realize that it is still possible to find some of the rafter leaders who don't pay enough attention to safety.
We went there twice, honestly 9 years ago. - that's why I believed safety is not a question any more. We went with the rafters form the Bosnian side. First time it was perfect, real fun, but skipper was a great guy, joking when possible but yelling when dangerous (you really must take an active part in rowing down the river and listen to skipper carefullly). From equipment we only had special shoes-boots (which don't have that significant role.
We passed it with great excitement and pleasure. Therefore next year we decided to go for it again.
Fortunately this time we had shoes-boots and life jackets! But we had a poor skipper (he was like a shy guy who doesn't know that he should command more strictly). We turned upside down twice, got bitten all over the body from kicking the rocks under the water on our way through the wild water part to a more slow one. Life jacket really helped pulling me out at the very last moment of diving letting me take a small breath before water pulled me in again.
As we were told, the only way out of the canyon is to go on, we had to finish it with the boat, but at the end, being pretty traumatized and full of blue kicked spots on our body, we didn't want to go for the second part which was supposed to be along Drina river, but could hardly wait to reach land and calm ourselves.
Therefore I'd probably never go for it again, though I'd highly recommend it if you are provided a good equipment, and very well checked skippers.
