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.


Filicudi Guide

The Italian island of Filicudi is one of the Aeolian Islands and lies off the north east coast of Sicily and is popular with scuba divers. A large part of the volcanic island is now designated as the "Natural Reserve of Filicudi Island". The island is made up of several layers of lava with oldest being located in the sea in front of 'Fil di Sciacca' with the largest being 'Fossa delle felci' and the most recent being 'Montagnola'. The island's slopes tend to be steep and rocky with houses located around the "Porto Pecorini" and "Valdichiesa" where the Church of St. Stephen, the island's patron saint, can be found.

To the north of the island is the spectacular “Punta Zucco Grande” (with ten layers of lava) with the eastern side of the island being a less harsh environment. Perhaps the most beautiful landscapes on the island are the “Punta Perciato” and the giant boulders of the “Rupi delle Sciare” ["Cliffs of the ‘Sciara’”], which are steep vertical cliffs overlooking the sea.
