This uninhabited island was declared a special reserve for its many special natural features, in particular, its rare flora and fauna that can be found in no other location in the Adriatic, and its utterly extraordinary, almost unreal and seemingly barren rocky landscapes battered by gale-force bora winds and salty water. Some naturalists are even of the opinion that this island deserves the status of a national park in the Kvarner archipelago!
