Literally a breath of fresh air to visit this beautiful island with such history in the middle of beautiful Lake Bled. to walk the steps pilgrims walked hundreds of years ago in their dedication to God is uplifting, especially on such an inspiring little island with its beautiful little church. What a wonderful secret not yet overrun by the rest... More

true romantic spot in the middle of the lake and worth the boat trip to row out there. a wedding was going on at the time so that increased the atmosphere. great views. very peaceful despite being busy with other tourists.

Really nice setting for a coffee in the middle of the lake but costs are rocketing now averaging €15 to cross and €6 to ring the bell (up from €2 recently). Well worth a visit but try and hire a boat from the lido so you set your own agenda.

To get to Bled Island, get a little passenger boat, paddle boarding, or hire rowing boats (hand made by a local) then cross to the Island and eat some of the best cake , coffee, ice-cream you can imagine. You can also ring the bell of the ancient church tower on this tiny ancient island in the middle of this... More

I had a good time being in this beautiful island and the city itself. One day was not enough to see everything around, but it gives me a good thoughts of how to organize my trip to this great city.

Get the boat over to the island and have a wander. You only need to stay about half an hour but it's well worth a visit. There is a place to buy ice creams and a cafe to have a drink/go to the loo and a nice quality gift shop.

An amazing little church in the middle of the lake accessed by the PLENTA boats or if you're feeling fit some people swim out to it, I believe there are about 100 steps to climb to get to the church - well worth it

Don't miss Bled if you are in Slovenia. It's simply an amazing place to visit, besides the lake, the island in the middle (to which one can visit by hiring a boat - we were six and cost us 20 euros....check about the prices first - it took us one hour - continuous rowing!! - to the island and back)....

We hired a small boat and rowed to the island (it cost us 10E (you need to price these up as some charged 15E!), which was great fun! It was a beautiful hot day and so my little girl was able to swim off the jetty when we arrived too. We didn't pay to go in as it was tiny,... More

If you don't have time to explore the island, don't make it a huge priority. The church is less impressive than the one on the shore, and ringing the bell is anticlimactic. The tower doesn't offer a view either.
