Salina is the second largest of the Aeolian Islands, recognised for having two inactive volcanoes, Monte Fossa delle Felci and Monte dei Porri. Due to its natural environment with more than 400 types of plant species and its fascinating geography, it has been included on the World Heritage list.
To protect this incredible treasure, Salina established a nature reserve where ferns, poplers, capers and several variety of orchards and vineyards are all protected. Different from the animated life of Lipari, Salina is an ideal place to find peace and serenity, getting a taste for original old Sicilian traditions.
Beaches here are simply wonderful thanks to the alternation of rocks and sandy bays, in particular the bay of Pollara is a place you shouldn’t miss.
This beautiful island is also known for being the set of Il Postino (1995) a popular Italian film that tells the story of a postman who loves Pablo Neruda’s poems.
