Rinella Guide

The small village of Rinella is located on the island of Salina, or Santa Marina Salina to give it its full name. Forming one of the Aeolian islands, it is around 140 km to the north east of Palermo and 70 km to the north west of Messina. Known for its caves and black beaches, and its square which was a filming location for the movie "Volcano", Rinella is also home to the island's second port.

The island is divided into three regions/towns. Santa Marina is on the eastern coast, Malfa is to the north and Leni is in the south west of the island. Rinella is located down towards the sea from Leni. Located above the village of Leni is Valdichiesa in the island's centre. Other villages on the island include Capo Faro, Pollara and Lingua.

Ferry services from the small harbour depart to Palermo and Milazzo on the island of Sicily.

Salina Guide

The Italian island of Salina is one of the Aeolian Islands and is a destination of nature lovers who will fall in love with the island's beautiful landscape that is made up of volcanic rocks and slopes of olive trees and capers. The island is less crowded that Lipari and is the greenest and most fertile of all the Aeolian Archipelago islands and is known for its charming villages where the progress of time seems to have stopped. For example, in Rinella, there is a lovely small harbour which is the perfect place to watch the beautiful sunsets and the way the locals decorate their houses always seems to catch the attention of tourists. In the east of the island is the village of Pollara where if you take the winding stairway down to the sea you will find the famous coastline where the famous Italian film director Massimo Troisi filmed the movie Il Postino (The Postman). This is Salina's most beautiful beach where visitors will find shallow, warm, clear waters filled with sponges, Moray Eels and Groupers. this is also a good spot for scuba diving and has some excellent underwater photography opportunities.

The island can be reached by hydrofoil and SNAV ferry from Messina on the island of Sicily.
