Today, the island of Lošinj is mostly covered in forests. However, it has not always been like this. In the past, it was predominantly covered in deforested, rocky grasslands as elsewhere in the Cres-Lošinj archipelago. Through the activities of the Society for Forestation and Beautification of Mali Lošinj, this part of the island underwent considerable change. Since then, it boasts a lush Aleppo pine forest. The pines provide shade for tourists in search of relaxation and a clean sea, and their needles and the evaporation of their resin fragrance the air.
