Explore Sveti Stefan
This small fortified island, today is one of the most romantic getaways in Europe. Sveti Stefan is an unusual place that came into existence in a unique way. It stands on the cliff of a rocky island and a sand isthmus looking like a stem connects it with the land.
The island has a 2-kilometre (1.2 miles) coast line located in the central part of Montenegro’s Adriatic coastline. It is situated to the south of Budva between Pržno and Sveti Stefan villages. The pink sandy beaches of St. Stefan, Milocer and Queen’s Beach are part of the coast line.
St. Stefan is also the name of the township that’s sprung up onshore. From its steep slopes, you can admire the iconic island. Of all the sights along the Adriatic shoreline, St. Stefan is the most extraordinary. That’s why it has unsurprisingly been named as Montenegro’s most photographed site.
Just think – you, the sound of the wind and a few seabirds for company and somewhere in these wild thoughts, smell of the morning coffee on the very same island.

It was named after the hill located above, made of red rocks. It offers a beautiful view of the old town of St. Stefan, the island of St. Nikola and the open sea.
The old fishing village of Przno, stone houses, a sandy beach 260 meters long, fishing boats in the bay, and the island of Krsic, only 50 meters away from the village, create an authentic ambience that exudes tradition and antiquity.
