Most visitors to Budva prefer to stay at the seaside, and Budva itself is indeed a good place to spend some time. However, for the more energetic, a little hike up an escaprment to a small old church, with fantastic views to Sveti Stefan and the coastline up and down, is the right thing to do.

From the car park, walk along the Monastry and enter the cemetery. Leave the cemetary at the back end, through a gate, and you will find a well made path, constructed by a monk over the period of ten years. It leads you to the first view point (with a well). From there, follow the asphalt road for a few hundred meters, then turn right (a new road appeared to be under construction, but the project looked abandonned). One at Ogradenica church (with water, but otherwise no facilities), turn around shaprly to find the path leading to the edge and down the escarpment. 

The last part of the hike returns along the coastal road, which is somewhat an annoyance - but you might be able to catch a bus. Alternatively, once you have reached the village Tudorovici on your way back from the escarpment, follow the road to Sveti Sava, a little church on a hill that you will have seen form where you started. Unfortunately, at the time we were there, there was no clear path down to the Monastry.
