Ginostra Guide

Ginostra Ferry Port

The cliff-top village of Ginostra is set within a naturally formed amphitheatre on the western coast of Stromboli, a tiny, mountainous isle found off the northern coast of Scilly in Italy. It’s a sparsely populated settlement of white stucco buildings that overlook a craggy coast of black rocks. The entire village is surrounded by steep, verdant hills covered in olive trees and prickly pears that rise towards the hulking form of the active Mount Stromboli volcano at the island’s heart. The port of Ginostra, locally known as Pertuso harbour, is found at the foot of a precipitous cliff to the south-east of the village. It can be reached via a set of zig-zagging stairs that lead from the elevated suburbs to a small concrete platform, upon which sit a miscellany of row-boats. A ferry terminal is located at the end of the curved pier that extends from the edge of the harbour. There are no facilities here, not even a ticket office, with the pier consisting of little more than a docking zone for ferries. Due to the island’s lack of roads and absence of any rail routes, travelling to and from the port can only be achieved on foot. There are no motorised vehicles at all in Ginostra, a consequence of the narrow twisting lanes that meander between the quaint cluster of houses, and public transportation is non-existent. Two ferry lines run from the port of Ginostra, travelling to a number of different destinations across the Tyrrhenian Sea throughout the week. A Siremar service makes the long journey north to the major port-city of Napoli on the mainland of Italy, while others head south to the island of Panarea, the towns of Salina and Rinella on the island of Salina, the islands of Lipari and Vulcano, and the port-town of Milazzo on the northern coast of Scilly. Routes to Lipari, Milazzo, Panarea, Salina and Vulcano are also serviced by Liberty Lines ferries.
