A Floristically Extremely Valuable Area
Upper Kamenjak is situated between Premantura and Volme. It is an area of exceptional landscape value which includes a variety of habitats. From pastures of sage and garrigue, to holm oak maquis and Allepo pine forests, this area offers unforgettable views. Since 1996, Upper Kamenjak has been protected as a significant landscape, and research has shown that the area is floristically extremely valuable. As many as 487 different plant species have been recorded at Upper Kamenjak. Such a large number of plant species in a relatively small area indicates a high degree of biological diversity. At Upper Kamenjak, an annual grass species Catapodium pauciflorum was recorded for the first time for the flora of Croatia in 2012.
