Well worth the climb

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

This place is mentiont in every guide as if it was something really special. I don't know, it's just a house in the middle of rocks. But my parents liked it. You can't access it by car, so you have to walk for about 2 hours - the walk was more interesting than the old monastery.

This place is almost dream like. It looks like it just came out of a Hobbit kingdom of Elves. But be prepared. It takes a while to reach it and it's exclusively by foot. If you're aiming to descend all the way to the beach, it will take you a day of walking there and back. But it's a day... More

Dont be a fool like me, didn't check it wasn't open on Monday (might be open for groups, but not for "normal public"). We hiked up from the beach nearby (we were dropped off by the boat from Bol) and rather annoyed man(I presume his was a guide for a pre booked tourist group) slammed a door on my face... More
