Some of the most remarkable plant communities of the Mediterranean climate are visible here on a small surface, due to which the island has been proclaimed as a Special Reserve of Forest Vegetation. The forested part of the island is covered with an interweaving network of trails that rise and descend through the cool shade of old pine trees, evergreen oaks, and groves of laurel trees. Botanical gardens house collections of eucalyptus, cactus, and succulents from all ends of the earth and some of the trees in the Olive Grove are more than 300 years old.

Very popular are spectacular peacocks, the symbol of Lokrum, and adorable rabbits wandering around to keep you company. The magic continues at places like Dead Sea Lake, Charlotte’s well, a complex of Benedictine Monastery, the church of Annunciation, or when you walk up The Path of Paradise to Royal Fortress on top of the island and visit Lazaret or the Cross of Triton. Lokrum is also the island of many legends of which most popular are The Lokrum Curse and Richard the Lionheart shipwreck.
