Salina Island is the second largest island in the Aeolian Islands volcanic archipelago, which lies to the north of Sicily off the coast of southern Italy in the Tyrrhenian Sea, around 270 kilometers northeast of Palermo and 500 kilometers south of Rome. Settled since the 4th century BCE, today this picturesque region has become a popular destination for boating and yachting enthusiasts from around the world, thanks in part to the fantastic Mediterranean climate and the wide variety of historical attractions located throughout the region.

 

A number of marinas can be found along Salina’s coastline, including a port in the town of Santa Marina, and another in Rinella that are frequented by visitors from Naples, Palermo and Messina. Volcanic activity here has been dormant for more than 10,000 years, although thermal springs and post-volcanic ‘gurgling’ activity still exists on the island. While here, be sure to sample the local wine, which is crafted from local Malvasia grapes.
