Loved the island
Sep 2021
Spent 40 minutes here after being taken on the Pletna boats, great place, bell tower is a rip off though 12 euros to go up the tower. Great walk around the island and great photo opportunities

More the view OF the thing than the thing itself
Sep 2021
It's hard to separate the view from the rest of this.

The view as you approach is beautiful for sure. The wide steps leading up are impressive and a nice photo op. The interior of the church is impressive as far as churches go, I suppose, but churches aren't my thing.

This was all included as part of a tour we're doing so I don't have a reference point for value. The boat ride was one price and then getting into the church or tower is yet another. I could see this being considered a tourist trap

Various ways to get there
Aug 2021
I'm not really sure how an island can be a scam (see one review down)...so with that out of the way, the island is lovely--both in and of itself, and from elsewhere on or around the lake. You can get there by boat (with someone else rowing), or you can hire your own boat, or SUP, or kayak. I suppose you could swim out there if you're feeling froggish (or fish-like, I guess).

There's even a café on the island (of course, this is Europe after all), so fret not if you're hankering for a beverage of some type.

Biggest SCAM of Slovenia
Jul 2021
The biggest scam in Slovenia. DO NOT GO.
If the price of the boat seems okay, expect it to double just to see anything inside a building on the island. Otherwise, the island is so small and pointless that it's boring and frustrating. Nobody left happy.

A must see
Jun 2021 • Family
Definitely a must if you visit Slovenia. Only 50km from Ljubljana. You should tale a taxi boat and visit the lake island and Bled castle.

Beautiful Island in picturesque landscape
Jan 2020
It is a beautiful island in the middle of a like between beautiful mountains. You can walk around the island and visit a little church on the top of a hill. You usually go there with a boat tour. Unfortunately, our boat didn't give us enough time (nearly one hour), what in my opinion was not enough to enjoy this beautiful island. Eveyone nearby should go there.

A small and wonderful island
Nov 2019 • Family
There are several options to get to the island in Lake Bled.
We chose to rent a boat and arrive independently.
It took us about 45 minutes and we reached the small and magical island.
After a not particularly difficult ascent, we reached the church.
After a short visit, we went into the cafe on the spot and ate some excellent ice cream.
The view in every direction was amazing.
Overall a nice trip for the whole family, in my opinion not suitable with small children.

Beautiful day to paddle out to the island
Jul 2020
Rent a row boat and head out! Easy and comfortable 15-20 minute ride out to the beautiful island. Get yourself some locally made ice cream, and ring the bell while you are there!
