For its population and surface it is the second island of the archipelago, 27 km of surface, 7 km long, far from Lipari only 2 miles. Here the volcanic nature is well visible from the 2 twins volcanos: Monte dei Porri and Fossa delle Felci. The name Salina derives from a lake of salt water, on the south side of the island, one time used to make eating salt. But, at the same time, this is the only one island
which has fresh water. For this reason, when you arrive from the sea, the island appears you as a mountain of emerald green leaves, also Salina is very famous for the vineyards. In fact the precious wine Malvasia comes from here. Who affirms that Pollara is the only suggestive area to visit here, is wrong. With 13 miles of coast around Salina there are alternatively fishing towns, caves, shores all to discover, among the most beautiful Rinella and Leni, with their colours changing from blue of the sea to the green of plants.
