Montenegro: Sveti Stefan Island
Sveti Stefan is really a fairy tale – a beautiful castle on a tiny island in the open sea connected by a beautiful coarse sand beach to the shore. It’s stunning in every possible dimension…. But that’s where the good part ends – it’s a super exclusive 50-room resort hotel by Aman Hotels and you can’t get to the island. The closest I got was by renting a 30-euro beach lounge on its beach. This little islet was the playground of rich and famous for years – many celebrities stayed here (Orson Welles, Elizabeth Taylor, Sophia Loren, Princess Margaret, Carlo Ponti, Ingemar Stenmark, Kirk Douglas, etc.). See the room pricing attached….
