Salina is one of the Aeolian Islands which are beautifully placed off of the northeast coast of Sicily. Salina is known for "it's simplicity without any status symbols, just going deep into life." Arriving here does take some planning, time and know how.. Whether you arrive by ferry , hydrofoil or jet you will appreciate the journey. It is an oasis of beauty, calm and solitude. You will understand that just being present in it's beauty is enough. The movie Il Postino was filmed here in Pollara which is on the west side of the island.
