Relaxing boat ride

very nice to watch the lake whilst going to the island. Lovely view from top. Half an hour in more than enough on the island.

We rented a boat for an hour to row out to the island. The experience on the boat was more fun than the island itself. You have to pay to go into the church and that is the only attraction on the island. It does provide a beautiful view though.

The church at the island is amazingly beautiful and depicts true catholic traditions. However, paying to go up the stairs to see the view was not worth it. Be fit as there are numerous flights of stairs to get through.

the island is charming , very little to do on it. Stroll or visit a little church , grab a coffee. If you come with the touristic boat you'll have only 30 min, but it' s enough to have a view over this charming site.

Hike to the top of the tower at the church, not very hard. The views are incredible. You'll need to take a boat to get there, the men are on shore to get you there. They are charming and strong. You'll be in good hands. The lake is pristine and perfect. We had a lovely time. The gift shop at... More

A visit to Bled is incomplete unless you make a trip to the island. While hire boats are available, renting a roat boat is a worthwhile experience. A 20 minute row will bring you to the base of the Assumption of Mary Church. An additional 20 minutes is all you need to climb the bell tower, ring the church bell... More

There's nothing on the island of particular interest or beauty, but the sight itself is iconic, so definitely worth a visit. We chose to rent a row boat from our BnB, and make our own way across, and just got the timing right before the weather set in. The views approaching the island from the lake are breathtaking, and once... More

So romantic, so beautiful. Taking a boat ride over lake… then climbing stairs (90 of them : ) ) , then having a coffee break in a small café, beautiful church…bell tower, walk along the small island… just dreamy

Being rowed over to the island was a lovely experience to savour the views all around us, we paid extra to go inside the church (ring the bell!) and up the tower for views. Recommend this especially with children.

Ship there with a man-driven small boat, nice trip. The best is if the driver can tell you some things about the surroundings too :) Newly renovated church, nice area. Worth to visit to tower (mechanical clock). You have to pay 6 EUR to enter the church.
