One of my little rules in life is that I never have a beer until I've done something either constructive, productive or energetic and taking the camera for a walk ticks all three boxes for me.

For a pleasant wander you can either walk along the lakeside boardwalk or follow the clifftop after Tsar Samouil's fortress to the picture postcard worth Church of St Jovan at Kaneo. But you needn't stop there. If you continue north there are footpaths through the woods and along the clifftop which offer some equally stunning views of the various bays further along the lake.

Then of course you can return the way you came and enjoy that well deserved Skopsko at one (or all) of the little lakeside bars!
