Don't know how we missed the path the first time which is well signed from the car park but did get a good view of the monastery from the wrong path. On the second attempt a... read more

Don't know how we missed the path the first time which is well signed from the car park but did get a good view of the monastery from the wrong path. On the second attempt a slippery 35 minute climb down was rewarded with being greeted by hordes of people arriving from a boat trip below. The organisation for going... More

The monastery Blaca was a hiding place for some monks, and it really looks like that, it's hidden between some cliffs. It has some stunning work of old fashion stone house engineering. The museum part was closed but never the less we enjoyed it. But heads up it is a bit hard walk to get to it, would not suggest... More

We decided to go and see following all the reviews on the tripadvisor. I should say in advance I am a countryside person and a hunter so I enjoy long walks but this was horrible. We used a car as far as we could on a not so bad dirt road (5,5 km). Then we had to walk downhill on... More

The history of the priests education and self sufficiency living in place is amazing. There is a fee to get a talking tour through but worth it.

Went on the Blaca trip yesterday. Could have been a good morning but they packed so many on the boat we had to wait in the blistering heat for 1hour 30 mins before getting into Monastery. Which was fairly interesting . 40 mins walk along possibly dangerous crumbly rocky path, tough going for many. Not suitable for little kids or... More

Booked the tour from Bol Frane excursion which advertises breakfast - 1 slice of bread and ham . The boat trip gives great views of the coast . The walk can be strenuous but it depends on the pace and your fitness . There is a lot if waiting time - 30min -,for the tour of the monastery because they... More

This is a very special place. It takes a bit of getting to by foot but it is well worth it when you get there.

So we did not go into the Monastery - the man we woke as we stumbled through the gate told us we needed to wait 10 mins and the tour we could hear was in German so given we are English and only speak English we opted to keep walking to the beach. However the walk is amazing - it's... More

We arrived at the monastery about half an hour after closing time so I can't comment about what's inside. We knew it closed quite early (unfortunately) but wanted to avoid walking in the afternoon heat. Nevertheless, we enjoyed finding our way in a map along the macadam road leading through the forests and then walking from the little improvised parking... More
