From the harbour close to the centre of Ohrid, a boat leaves in the morning (around 10.00 h) for St Naum at the south-east site of the lake. In the afternoon (around 15.00 h) the boat returns to Ohrid. The boat trip takes about 1 hour. Especially with clear weather this trip is very enjoyable.

2012 prices: 600 denars or 10 euro for a return ticket.

You have time to visit St Naum, and to stroll along the people offering -often religious- merchandise along the beach.

If you go by car to St Naum, you might be able to get somebody to take you to St Naum by boat from the parking place, for 100 Denar (less than 2 euro) per person. It is very nice to approach St Naum from the water, as it is located on the cliffs above the lake.

After visiting the monastery of St Naum, you can for instance do a boat trip to the springs or go to Lake Prespa, see my other tips.

If you have already seen enough after the devastating St Naum site, just enjoy the beach and the crystal clear water (that gets warmer the further you are from the springs).
