Megalos Roukounas is actually the most popular beach in Anafi island, Cyclades. This is a long beach of about 400 meters, with soft sand and fantastic waters. A nice tavern is found there as well as some Anafi beach hotels in a walking distance from the water. In high season, the beach of Megalos Roukounas in Anafi is a
frequent spot for free campers, although free camping is officially not allowed by the Greek State.
One side of the beach and small neighboring bays are used by naturists. Next to the beach of Megalos (Large) Roukounas is the bay of Mikros (Small Roukounas). This region can be accessed by bus from Chora or by foot, as this is the ending point of a nice hiking path in Anafi island.
