WWe went and it was all closed. Thats not the reason for the average review. Its scruffy, rubbish everywhere, half made buildings. Tyres all over. Just a tip really.

Driving into Budva the Island of St. Nicholas (the largest in Montenegro) dominates your view out into the Adriatic. The two-kilometre island is uninhabited except in the summer when it is the destination for swimming, lying on the rocky beaches or escaping from the throngs of people on the beaches of Budva. During high season numerous boats provide round-trip service from town. At low tide, it is possible to wade to the mainland via a small and narrow isthmus.
We only viewed the island as it was October, on a tight schedule, and I don't do rocky beaches.

There is a small uninhabited island in the Adriatic sea near Budva called Montenegro Hawaii - Island of St.Nicholas. It's the great place to enjoy amazing views of the Budva Riviera and absolutely clear water of the Adriatic sea. But mind the rocks! It would be hard without swim shoes.
And the best thing in the trip to the island is the way itself! You can take a "fast" ticket (3 euros) and just to the island on boat straight from the Budva's shores and it takes about 15 minutes. Another option is boat trip alongside the Riviera to the Island of St.Stefan and then to the Island of St. Nicholas. It costs only 4 euros but believe me you'll get a lot of pleausre and have a chance to see quite this private and beautiful island!

Enjoy beautiful 10-15 minutes boat trip from Slovenska plaza to the island of St Nicholas, which is popular as Hawaii among the locals. Then choose one of a few beaches on the island and relax in some of casual bars there. It may be interesting to explore underwater world around the island, or hike a little bit if you are adventurous one.

Amazing small island with some beaches where the most famous one called Hawai Beach.
You can get to the island by boat from Slovenske beach centre Budva for 3 € round trip boats come goes all 30 minutes, be sure you go on Magic Stars because they don’t stop coming go all 30 min until 19pm
The beaches are total of stones everywhere if you cannot pay 10€ for 2 chairs parasol you can lay free on stones. There are some secret beach behind the island that you can get there by taxi boat for 20€ ride.
In island there are 2 nice Bar and Restaurants that you can have best BBQ seafood cheap also under trees.
The water is magical total Cristal clear that people use to be in water for hours.
Is possible jump from Rocks in island too

3 Euro taxi boat transfer. Beach sunbeds nicely spread out. Snack bar ok but whole island appears unfinished. Not worth a trip and no idea why locals refer to it as Hawai !!

This is one of the most recognizable landmark of the coast of Budva. It is not situated far away from shore, and you can reach it by boat. It is rich in extraordinary plants and interesting wildlife. Despite it is not settled there is a nice beach where you can rent deck chairs and sunshades.

Took a 3 Euro boat ride to the island for a beach day. Very nice. The boat fare is return so keep your ticket. The beach is really stony. You need shoes or flip flops otherwise it’s really painful on your feet. Good bar and restaurant but they play music all day. If you want peace and quiet go to another beach.

For 3€ each return this island is definately worth a visit. Far more relaxed and much cleaner than the hectic crazy beaches on Budva. You pay €10 for 2 beds and a parasol, and can bring your own drinks & food unlike on main beach. The beds are also comfy and are a nice distance apart so it doesn't feel too crowded. We sat on the beds right by the walkway as you get of the boat (ones with the green/white Heineken parasols) and we had a lovely 2 days. I recommend you bring some shoes for the sea as there are big rocks/pebbles as your get in plus we noticed a few sea urchins on the sea bed which are painful and sharp if you accidentally stand on them. There are a couple of huts on the island for snacks (pancakes & pastries) and there is a guy that walks up and down the beach from the bar taking drinks orders if you felt lazy and fancied a cold beer or a soft drink. We recommend a trip here whilst in Budva if you want to get away from the crazy crowds and mad music!

In a peek of tourist season while almost all beaches in Budva are like dirty garbages we really hoped that this place should be cleaner and better as it takes some time to go there also you need to pay 3 euro for the ship and people are lazy. So we bet it will be the way to escape this hive but we were wrong. Beach is same dirty, also the entrance to the water is just worst you could ever imagine, big slimy stones where you can break your feet. Don’t ever go there with small children you will have no possibility to walk on a water around them to keep them safe. Swimming is only possible you jump in a water and swim fast where is deeper.

Don’t recommend this place as a beach if only you want to make some photos
