Salina is the second largest island in the archipelago. From a distance Salina looks entirely green and it features two twin inactive volcanoes. More than 400 different types of plants grow here. Gastronomically, Salina is best known for three products: fish, capers and a sweet dessert wine called Malvasia delle Lipari. The water is extremely clean and home to a wide variety of sea animals, plants, caves and submerged volcanic craters.
Panarea is the second smallest of the eight Aeolian Islands. Panarea is the most fashionable of the Aeolians. There are thermal springs on the island located near villages. Scuba diving is a popular excursion, and you can even swim to a shipwreck. Panarea and the entire Aeolian chain were declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2000.
