The boat ride to the little island and walk around admiring the beautiful views on all sides of the little island was a high light of my trop to Bled.

One may have to wait some time for the boat to fill for the excursion to Bled island, advertised at 14 euros. About 20 of us were rowed across (half-an-hour each way) in a gondola time boat and given 35 minutes on the island, where there's a beautiful church, and a welcoming cafeteria/souvenier shop. The scam came whe the oatman was collecting the fares, and charged many people double on the basis that 14 euros was the one-way fare! Those of us who were savvy enough to dispute this just got a big grin and were permitted to pay just the advertised fare.

The water, the mountains and everything about it. We stayed at the Hotel Grand Toplice which is the oldest hotel that has been updated. Lovely view and great location.

The church is charming with it's story and the opportunity to enhance your luck by ringing the church bell 3 times. The views are stunning. The boat trip over (from Vila Bled location) was so fun as you pass over crystal clear water. We were lucky enough to be there on a beautiful day and the whole experience was wonderful.

We rented a paddle boat and rowed out to explore this island. Surrounded the the more remarkably blue, clear and warm water, the island houses an old church. You can swim from the island and there are places (the main staircase) to sit and dry off while soaking in the incredible surroundings. Go here. It is the absolute best experience.
