The Aeolian archipelago, with its 7 islands, is the emerging part of a huge submarine volcanic arc which extends for around 200 km.
The Aeolian Islands are the result of a submarine volcanic activity.
They emerged from the sea 2 million years ago. Geologists found some rocks dating back to 1 million 300 thousand years ago and lavas dating back to 500 thousand
Panarea, Lipari, Filicudi and Alicudi are the most ancient volcanoes. In Panarea and Lipari there are still fumaroles and thermal springs, while in Alicudi,
Filicudi and Salina the volcanic activity has completely disappeared. Vulcano and Stromboli are the only active volcanoes.
The island was defined in ancient times as the “Lighthouse of the Tyrrhenian Sea”. Its glares flashing every 20 minutes can be seen even from a great distance.
The Mediterranean vegetation characterizes all islands: oleanders, myrtles, rockroses, heaths together with rosemary, thymes, heliotropes and mastic trees
are the most common plants.
Two woody plants can also be found in almost all Aeolian islands: grape-vines and olive trees. The landscape is characterised by cultures of olive trees and
grape-vines, bushes and pioneer vegetation.
The most important products that are exported from these islands are capers and “malvasia”, a dessert wine produced mainly in the island of Salina using
The rich and varied fauna includes vertebrate animals like birds and lizards and invertebrate species like coleopterans and gastropod seashells.
The sea is full of life: anchovies, sardines, mackerels, molluscs and crustaceans are the most common ones.
Even though they are being abandoned, tuna and swordfish fishing are traditional activities carried out at the end of spring in the islands of Lipari and Stromboli.
The weather in the Aeolian Archipelago is very arid, due to the scarce rain. The temperature is mild during winter and not too high during summer,
thanks to the marine breeze.
The average temperatures are 13° C. during winter (January), 20° C. during spring (May), 27° C. during summer (July) and 21° C. in autumn (October).
The yearly average temperature fluctuates between 20° and 16° C. The predominant winds are the Mistral (north-west wind) and the Scirocco (south-east wind).
ABOUT SALINA ISLAND= The island of Salina has a surface of 26.8 Km2. Its name derives from an old little lake once used to produce salt.
It is characterised by two volcanoes and in ancient times its name was “Dydime”, “the double”, due to the similar shape of the two mountains forming the island:
Monte Fossa delle Felci (elevation 962 metres - 3,155 ft.) and Monte dei Porri (elevation 860 metres - 2,821 ft.). The island is rich in Mediterranean vegetation.
Viticulture is extremely important for the production of the famous Malvasia, a valuable grape wine produced from grapes withered on the vine. The sweet and
aromatic taste make it a very good dessert wine, which is the result of the traditional care for the land and for the product handed down from one generation to
Another typical fruit of this island is the caper, which is exported all over the world and is used for flavouring many dishes.
This island is also special from the administrative point of view: it is the only one in the archipelago that does not depend on the municipality of Lipari.
The island itself is divided into three autonomous municipalities: Malfa, Leni and Santa Marina Salina. There are two ports: Santa Maria Salina and the small Rinella.
The most important beaches are: Lingua, which is located next to the small and picturesque salty lake, and the romantic beach of Pollara, dominated by
a huge white vertical cliff, which is part of an ancient crater.
In the volcanic cone of the highest mountain there is a wonderful tree fern forest (Fossa delle Felci), which is today a protected natural reserve and can
be reached through a track. It takes around 2 hours to get there on foot and the starting point is the Sanctuary of the Madonna del Terzito in Valdichiesa.
There is also another track starting from Santa Marina Salina. To better enjoy the natural beauty of the island of Salina, we suggest you to rent a car or
a scooter; for these services, please contact our booking office.
