Types of Transportation in Sveti Stefan

This city offers plenty of transportation options for visitors and locals. Some modes of transportation require more travel time, but just about anyone who wants to get around here can.

  • Taxi – One way to move from one place to another fast in this city is by hiring a taxi driver. For instance, it’s possible to take a taxi from Budva to Sveti Stefan for 7 Euros. The taxi trip is about 45 minutes faster than a bus, depending where you want to go. It costs more than taking a bus, but it sure beats standing in the rain.
  • Bus – A trip from Budva to Sveti Stefan and vice-versa would cost less than it does to take a taxi at only 2 Euros per person. However, riding the bus could actually cost your group more depending how many people are accompanying you. Furthermore, you might be stuck waiting for the bus to arrive. The entire trip would could take up to 45-60 minutes including walking time. If you are traveling alone, however, a bus might be more economical and would provide you a tour of the area.
  • Airplane – It only takes two hours to arrive to Sveti Stefan from the Dubrovnik Airport. This is ideal if you want to minimize your travel time and maximize your sightseeing time. It does, however, take away from the chance to view scenery and area attractions that comes with driving or riding.
  • Boat – The boat ride from Buda to Sveti Stefan is excellent. This trip could be expensive, however you might be able to bargain a fair travel price if you are swift enough when a boater makes you an offer for their transportation service. You will probably enjoy the view of the landscape against the water using this form of transportation. “Water taxis” is another term for boaters who offer frequent trips to and from Budva. Fares for all watercraft trips vary.
