There are various accommodation possibilities, like hotels, private houses to rent, and camping places. Although the potential of Vlasina lake is great, those who like fancier active vacations will find it without grand events. Lakeshore is wild, but there is possibility to rent a boat. Lake’s water is crystalline and pure, and those who wish to run away from the civilization at least for a while, here can find their peace.

Vlasina is rich with fish as minnow, trout, barbell, carp and others.

Cultural and historical monuments nearby are monasteries and churches in villages Palja, Božica and Crna Trava.

Major part of the roads to Vlasina has been improved in 2008. There are two roads, one that goes toward Vlasotince and Crna Trava, and the other way is the road to Vladicin Han-Surdulica, which is slightly longer, but one part of it is highway.
