Salina is the greenest of the island. It is famous for its natural preserve, known as the Riserva Naturale del Fossa delle Felci e dei Porri that occupies the greater part of the territory, namely the ancient Didyme (twin). The name comes from the twin-peacked shape of the island: two mountains separated by a valley.
The first one, Monte Fossa delle Felci, which stands 962 meters above sea level, is the highest peak. It is covered by ferns. The second one, Monte Porri, 860 meters of heights, is the home of the Queen’s Hawk. Salina is full of amazing places, such as: Rinella, with its black caves, used as boats’ refuge; Pollara, full of fishermen’s deserted houses.
In Santa Marina you can find the modern and touristic port, with a fee-paying berth, equipped with several services, like: water, electricity and bathrooms
