Sveti Stefan Montenegró - the Island for the Rich and Famous
The island of Sveti Stefan Montenegró on the Adriatic coast south of Budva in Montenegro is a holiday resort for the rich and famous. The place consists of the island, whose buildings from the 15th Century are a luxury resort today, which offers suites for well-to-do guests: minimum price 750 Euro, maximum price 3000 Euro per night. Among the guests of the island on the Montenegro coast were stars such as Sylvester Stallone or Sophia Loren, Claudia Schiffer or the world chess champion Bobby Fischer. Political greats such as Willy Brandt, Helmut Kohl and Silvio Berlusconi were also guests on the holiday island of Sveti Stefan. For normal mortals, the island is not accessible. You can access the beach in front only, if you are not among the guests of the luxury island. That is only possible, if you pay high daily rental rates for a deck chair. Nevertheless, trips to the island of Sveti Stefan are not just something for the super-rich.
Enjoy the Luxury Resort for a reasonable Price
You do not have to belong to the rich and powerful to enjoy the beauty of the island. Holiday in Sveti Stefan can also be reasonably priced. If you drive past the main street above the modern district, you will see the island from the restaurant's terrace of the Hotel Adrovic * at the southern entrance to the village. While savoring salad, grilled octopus and a glass of local wine, we enjoy the view of the island as the breeze from the sea cools us down and the umbrellas flutter wildly over our heads. The deep blue sea, the bay of Budva and the hotel island below us turn this moment into a perfect holiday moment. Incidentally, you can not only eat very well at reasonable prices in this hotel. You can stay overnight at affordable prices with a great view of the luxury island from the rooms.
You need this for a stay in Sveti Stefan
- A sun hatbecause the sun shines intensively on the coast of Montenegro.
- Wear Sunglasses with UV protection *which also helps in strong sunlight.
- Light summer shirts *that are comfortable to wear in the heat.
- Sunscreen with high sun protection factor *that protects against sunburn.
- A swimsuit* and swimming trunks* for a refreshing swim in the sea or in the pool.

We get closer to the Montenegro island, as we enter the village via the southern entrance. Halfway up the slope - where the village road leads back up to the main road - there is a beautiful view of the former fishing village. Although there is no lookout bay, the road is so wide at this point, that we can stop for a quick photo.
At the Beach
If you want to approach the island at sea level, you can do so by driving down the rest of the slope. There is a parking lot (for a fee) and a small sandy beach, from which you have the island right in front of you. We don't have time for sunbathing and a cooling bath in the turquoise colored Adriatic. Also, that would be - frankly - too expensive. The daily rental price (!) for a deck chair is 80, - Euro. Our whirlwind tour along the Adriatic coast leaves us no time for that anyway. Nonetheless, Sveti Stefan leaves a deep impression, and we plan to spend several days here in the future. Not on the resort, mind you. But in a hotel with a view. The view of the island is undoubtedly one of the highlights on our trip along the Adriatic and worth more than just a short lunch break. Kayla has a three day itinerary of Montenegro for such a stay.
Sveti Stefan accommodation
You do not necessarily have to stay overnight on the exclusive and expensive island. This is possible at more reasonable prices either in the hotels that you can book via the above link. Alternatively, you can stay at the Sveti Stefan Budva Riviera.
