Isola Lunga

“As the sun goes down, the atmosphere on the island is transformed….
the sun illuminates the saline pools, flooding them with a thousand shades of pink, providing a natural spectacle so strong it takes your breath away.”

L’ISOLA GRANDE

The Oriented Nature Reserve “Isole dello Stagnone Marsala” includes the four islands: Mothia, Santa Maria, Schola and Isola Grande and, in the pre-reservation area, also the Ettore and Infersa Salt Pans. Isola Grande, better known as Isola Lunga, is the largest of the four. It is a nature oasis, entirely walkable. Phytogeographically, it hosts a large number of protected or endangered species such as Maritime Marigold L., Cynomorium coccineum L. and many other halophytic plants. The fauna is rich in resident and migratory birds and other small animals that make it unique and full of charm.

SALITURISMO AND SALT RESORT

Saliturismo (salt & tourism) developed on Isola Lunga starting in 2005, expanding the concept of experiential tourism conceived at the Ettore and Infersa salt pans over 10 years earlier: exclusive and innovative experiences related to salt and salt pans, designed and dedicated to our guests.
Saliturismo, that we created represents together: hospitality, nature trails, food and wine events, and sensory moments related to unique places in the reserve and our sea salt. In the middle of the Reserve and in an unspoiled and uninhabited area, you will be welcomed into our Salt Resort, created by comfortably restored an existing structure on the island. Where we promote, with full respect for Nature, strictly eco-friendly tourism: plastic use and water waste reduced to a minimum.

THE TRAVEL

The Island is reached by an approximately 20-minute crossing on special lagoon boats. And it is already a unique experience: you sail inside the very shallow waters of the Stagnone of Marsala, passing by the islands of Mothia and Schola. At the Island pier you will be greeted by our staff and the rushing chirping of cicadas.

NATURE TRAILS

An itinerary through pine forests, mills and salt ponds in a true kaleidoscope of colors; during the route-independent or guided-you can admire the very rich and often unique flora along with an equally varied and interesting fauna.

Wellbeing Salt Program

Within the Fra Giovanni saltworks right on the Big Island, the collection of food-grade sea salt is no longer carried out. However, the hydraulic circuit of the salt pans is kept in full operation, with water flows designed and managed in such a way as to give our guests the opportunity to dive inside salt pans with waters of different and increasing salt concentration or even lie on the salt crust. A unique experience and entirely dedicated to well-being, of body and mind. The tour is fully guided from arrival on the island to the salt pans. The duration of the route is about 60 minutes, however, it is possible to repeat it and stay in the facility until 6 p.m. We have locker room, bathrooms and solar shower.
