Welcome to Sveti Stefan


Sveti Stefan is also the name of the township that’s sprung up onshore. From its steep slopes, you can admire the iconic island to your heart’s content. On the downside, parking is difficult, there are lots of steps and there's little in the way of shops. Families will be delighted to discover an excellent (and free) playground near the Olive restaurant.
