We paddled around this beautiful island and saw it’s wonder. It’s a very chic and beautiful island with restaurants on it. There are boat tours from Budva everyday if you wanna go there. Only costs 3 Euro.

We looked for the €3 ferry that goes every half-hour but it doesn't start until next week when it gets busier. You can access it but it would cost a bit more that €3 return.

You will be charged €10 for the loungers and umbrellas so bear that in mind. The beach to the left is nice but the guy is really really rude and sarcastic so avoid it. Urchins in the sea so wear swim shoes
