The island looks really picturesque from the main shore so we decided to take a boat trip out. We waited for over 20 minutes for the boat to leave - the excuse being the boatman was waiting for a mother and four - he never did get them, but he filled the boat to what appeared to be the maximum,...

I have been to Bled before and my Wife many times as a child, however neither of us had been to the BEautiful Island before, we paid to be taken out in a boat with our son and had 30 minutes on the Island, this is enough time to take in and explore the beauty of the place. An added... More

Took a row boat from just by the lido beneath the castle. It's a fair row from there to the island so budget for an extra hour or little time actually there. Well worth the effort and it has a nice little cafe where you can get drinks and snacks

We used a row boat to get to the Island it was a wonderful trip filled with great views and plenty of opportunities for pics. The Island itself was very nice although we did not go inside the church or the tower. We hung out eating gelato in the sun while dipping our feet in the water. Definitely worth a... More

We rowed across on a hired rowing boat which was fun. Various access points to moor your boat (or take a gondola if you prefer to join a group and someone else to row but be prepared to wait for the boat to fill up before the Gondaleer moves off). Quite a few steps up no matter which way you... More

Sad to report that my spouse did not carry me up all 99 steps. Enjoyed the views and the fishy posters telling you about the critters in the water. Least favorite thing was the chocolate - almond cake - It must be some sort of acquired taste - very dry, crumbly and lacking in flavor.

Actually there is a netting around the bell tower to keep the birds out so spoils the photos but still worth the effort. It's just a lovely gondolier ride and great views to see. A must if you are at the lake.

This was well worth doing. 12 Euro per person to be taken by boat to the Island where you have half an hour. There is a cafe etc and a church where you can ring a bell for good luck. The charge to enter the tiny church was 6 Euros per person. A little steep in my opinion but I... More

Me and my two sons have visited Bled lake together. It was an amazing experience since the island, the lake, and its surroundings provided a perfect scenery. We have rented a boat and rowed to the island ourselves; we have landed to the island, rowed around the island, and jumped into the lake from the boat which all together became... More
