Either way, Podgorica, the capital and main road junction in Montenegro, is around 60 km away. Budva is connected to the rest of the coastal towns of Montenegro by the Adriatic Highway, which extends from Herceg Novi in the north, and Ulcinj in the far south.


Tivat Airport is 20 km (12 mi) away. There are regular flights to Moscow and Belgrade throughout the year, and dozens of seasonal and charter flights land daily at the airport during the summer season. Podgorica Airport is 65 km (40 mi) away, and it has regular flights to a number of European destinations throughout the year.


Urban transport consists of Mediteran Express buses, which operate between Budva city center and Sveti Stefan. This line services a large portion of the Budva urban core, as well as some small towns between Budva and Sveti Stefan. The frequency of this line is high during the summer months, and it is very popular among tourists.


The closest train station is Sutomore on Belgrade-Bar railway about 30 km away from Budva city center.
