Well worth a vist as the location is stunning and the monastery itself is fascinating. Be warned though if you come by boat it's a tough steep walk not made any easier by the heat.

If you arrive by car or bike, be prepared for a long ride down a long dirt road to get to the parking area. Just follow the signs. From the parking area you have a 2.5 km walk. If by boat, you will have a 30 minute walk from the port. It is worth it.

Beautifuk and interesting and one should definately pay for a tour round the building. But be aware of the walk to Blaca, it is a hard walk back for especially children when it is hot. Bring lots of water. It is a shame that there is no cafe or restaurant there. It would be nice if you could buy a... More

We took the boat from Bol harbour and really enjoyed the half hour hike up to the monastery. When we were there we had to wait about an hour for our tour but it was worth the wait, Facsinating insight into local history. Although you can buy water at the monastery it is worth taking your own refreshments,

After a 20 min approach walk from a car park that was 3km down a dirt road, you approach a high rocky gorge, and on the left side wall is the old convent, full of history and intrigue. For 40 kn you get a guided tour too see the many books, telescopes, the old school, and a grand piano! All... More

a great hike from Bol (7 hours at least), which can be shortened if you take the car to Murvica (-1 hr) or to Farska (-2hrs). From Farska to Blaca u walk through the woods and by the sea, there are a couple of bays you pass and in the third bay you go up to the monastery (45minutes). I... More

Having read that the site of Blaca was worth the trip on the boat from Bol from 9am to 2pm and seeing that all other trips with this tour boat were from 9am to 6pm, I decided to take it. For little children a whole day on a boat in summer can be too much. Friendly cashier but no real... More
