Rinella is a village in the municipality of Leni, on the Aeolian Island of Salina. The village is basically a tiny hamlet on the coast towards the south of Leni.
Rinella is Salina’s second port after Santa Marina on the eastern coast. The port is served by regular hydrofoils and ferry services to and from Lipari, Messina, Alicudi, Filicudi, Milazzo, Palermo, Panarea, Stromboli and Vulcano.
The history of Rinella dates back to as far as 5000 BC. Nowadays, the port is actually also a busy tourist hub especially in the summer months. At the port you will see some pastel coloured houses huddling around the waterfront. Unlike most pebbled beaches in Salina, Rinella offers a sandy beach just by the village centre.
