A large, crescent-shaped bay surrounds Petrovac, Montenegro, a pretty and stylish resort 5 mi/8 km south of Sveti Stefan. Its long beach of reddish gravelly sand and seaside promenade lined with restaurants and shops make it popular with families. A tiny picturesque harbor is at the north end of the bay guarded by a 16th-century Venetian fortress.
Just south of the town is the sandy beach of Buljarica, whose neighboring wetlands are a haven for migrating and rare birds. Overlooking Buljarica are the three churches that comprise the Gradiste Monastery, which is set in attractive olive and citrus groves. St. Nicholas church is the only one open for viewing, and visitors can admire its 17th-century interior and frescoes.
