It is very pleasant to be rowed over to the island in a local boat. However, you only have 30 minutes to see everything, as you must return with the same boatman. There are 99 steps up from the boat and this would be a problem for someone with mobility problems. Make sure you ring the bell in the lovely... More

Oct 3 Matjaz from Hotel Vila Bled, where we stayed the night, booked a private pletna to take us from the hotel dock to Bled (Otok) Island at 5:00. With Janez at the helm, the crossing took just minutes. On the return he treated us to a round-the-island bonus since we were his last customers for the day. Plus, he... More

You have looked at it every day, you have to visit. The boat trip is fun and good value for money and the views are panoramic.

Nice way to spend an hour at Lake Bled. Very pretty if brief trip to and from the island. There is a gift shop and snack shop. You only have 30 minutes to visit everything on the island which is too little to do it justice.

You must travel by boat to the island, then it is up a steep incline of 99 steps to get to the church. The grounds are beautiful and the navel of the church is quite pretty also, providing com great views of the lake in a different perspective. You can also climb the church tower for a few additinal Euros,... More

Bled Island and the lake are the main reason why we visited Slovenia. Therefore it was the first thing we planned to do during our stay. We had the most beautiful views of the island from our hotel room and with the changing light and time of the day, it amazed us with its beauty. Our hotel Toplice offered some... More

Visiting the Island is a must for Bled, the church is lovely and we had a very intersting guide. The views are fantastic and the lake is so clean and still. The Plenta boats are a great way to get to the island.

You can take a boat, what I will do next time! Boat renting is 15e/hour and possible 10-18. It takes maybe 20minutes to island, but many recommends to take 2 hours if you are like me (dreamer). There is also jazzhostel in bled where you can get discountcoupons to boatrenting if you take room from there, hehehe.
