Photographer's Note

Sveti Stefan (Saint Stephen) is once again a luxury 5 star resort in the Adriatic Sea between Croatia and Albania. It lost popularity with celebrities during the 1990's because of the civil war in former Yugoslavia, and did not reopen until 2007. I am staying in more modest accommodation overlooking the beach. It reminds me of Mont Saint-Michel in France. From Wikitravel. "Sveti Stefan, in the 1970's, was popular among celebrities, and among its guests were Marilyn Monroe, Willy Brandt, Bobby Fischer, Boris Spassky, Sophia Loren and Carlo Ponti, Monica Vitti, Ingemar Stenmark, Kirk Douglas, Jonathan Miller and Claudia Schiffer.
It remained the most exclusive resort on the Montenegro's coast until the 1990's, when it fell into decline during the breakup of the former Yugoslav federation.
In early 2007, Amanresorts, a Singapore based luxury resort operator won a contract to lease Sveti Stefan, along with the Miločer and Kraljičina beach resorts for a 30 year period. The island is now closed to non-resort guests."
