Very pretty and nice activity for hot days

The island is very nice and not too far from most beaches. Renting a boat or anything else to reach it is simple. I even swam back to shore.

If you are happy to row yourself this is the much quicker and cheaper way to get to the island. It will take about 15 minutes. Otherwise you have to wait for a 'pletna' boat to fill up before it goes. Island definitely worth a visit (although inevitably quite 'touristy').

After a relaxing 25 minute pletna ride we arrived at the island in the scorching sun. The views from here are fantastic and the water colour is absolutely stunning on a clear, sunny day. You only get 30 minutes before your pletna departs, but we found it long enough to take in the views and relax. Well worth a visit.

Our group took the pletna (adults) and then a kayak (teens) out to the island. The church is pretty, but if you aren't up for the stairs on a hot day, just strolling around the island or sitting on a bench and watching the canoes and kayaks and people is also pleasant. Views of the castle from out on the... More

Well the family and I got to the island by taking a little 30 minute boat ride out there. It has a nice little scenic walkway around it. Up the stairs on either side is a little cafe and souvenir and gift shop. It was a nice little trip.

Let me start by saying that if you can swim to the island, do it. When you take a gondola ride they only give you about 30 minutes to view the island. The tickets are cheap to enter the attractions, but you simply feel rushed. Other than that the place is beautiful and has cheap ice cream. Make sure you... More

Looks much better than it is. Not worth paying the extra to ring the bell however, you will probably only ever be here once.....

Such an adorable lake this is. The view where the alps is in the back ground is breath taking. We took a bike all the way around the lake, about 3 or so kilometers. The color of the water is unbelievable and clear. The little island in the center is beautiful and worth going to. Just the boat ride there... More

The island is too small to accommodate all the visitors all trying to take photos at the same time. If you have been to the castle you really can not improve on the view you have already seen. It costs 12 euros to take a boat there and then if you want to see the church, they charge you again.... More
