Taxis between Sveti Stefan and Budva
We caught a taxi from Sveti Stefan to Budva during a day trip to the region in May 2012.
Earlier in the day, we had caught a bus from Budva to Sveti Stefan at a cost of 2 Euros per person (journey time 20 minutes).
Ordinarily, we'd have caught the bus back to Budva as well, but on this occasion we decided to take a taxi in order to maximise our free time in the area.
We'd actually walked a little way along the coast from Sveti Stefan to the village of Przno when we located a bus stop for Budva. We noted that the next bus was in 10-15 minutes time and it was starting to rain. If we'd caught a bus back to Budva bus station, we'd have then faced a 20 minute walk to Stari Grad where we intended to go.
As we were studying the bus timetable, a taxi driver pulled up and asked if we wanted to go to Budva. We asked him how much it would cost to go to Stari Grad and he replied 7 Euros. That was only 1.50 Euros each more expensive than the bus and it would save us around 45 minutes in waiting, travelling and walking time, so we accepted.
10 minutes later, after a journey in torrential rain, the taxi driver dropped us off on Slovenska Obala, just a couple of minutes walk from the entrance to the walls of Stari Grad. It was worth paying a little extra for the convenience compared to the local bus.
Bus from Budva to Sveti Stefan
We caught a bus from Budva to Sveti Stefan during a daytrip to the Budva Riviera in May 2012.
We had arrived at Budva bus station at 10am on a Saturday morning after a 1 hour and 50 minute bus ride from Herceg Novi. We immediately set about finding a connecting bus to Sveti Stefan.
A quick enquiry at the ticket office told us that the next bus to Sveti Stefan was at 10:30am and we should purchase tickets there rather than on the bus. We paid 2 Euros each for the tickets.
We grabbed a late breakfast in one of the station's cafes and made our way to the departure bays just before 10:30am. There were a couple of buses parked up, but neither looked to be ours. They were both full sized coaches and had various towns listed on the boards in their windscreens. We were expecting a local minibus for the short journey to Sveti Stefan.
Fortunately, we asked a member of staff and he pointed us in the direction of one of the buses. It was in fact our bus; its final destination was Herceg Novi, but it would be taking a route that went via Sveti Stefan.
We later saw bus stops closer to the town centre that displayed timetables for the "Mediteran Express" and advertised buses "every 20 minutes" between Budva and Sveti Stefan. It seems that these local buses call at various stops along the route between Budva and Sveti Stefan, but don't go via the central bus station.
The journey to Sveti Stefan took 20 minutes and we were dropped off at a bus stop on the main road high above the sea. We almost missed our stop as we were busy taking photos of the famous islet of Sveti Stefan through the window; thankfully the driver shouted out to inform us that this was our stop. From there, it was a steep 10-15 minute walk down to the beach. I wouldn't have fancied walking back up to the bus stop (we caught a taxi back to Budva from the nearby village of Przno after having walked there along the coast).
The route between Budva and Sveti Stefan is a scenic one with some fantastic panoramic coastline views.

Sveti Stefan by boat
I reached Sveti Stefan by boat from Budva. You can agree about the price before to leave (do not accept the first price, they use to ask you more than they expect) for the travel and the waiting while you visit Sveti Stefan.
I think its the best and nicest way to reach Sveti Stefan.
The best way to travel to Sveti Stefan is by water taxi. There are a couple of larger boats that provide a fairly regular service to Budva at about 5 euros per person. There are also several other boats where you can negotiate the price so if there is a group of you can probably get a better deal. We got a taxi for 4 for 15 euros.
