Anafi is among the smallest and most secluded islands in the Aegean Sea. Administratively it belongs to the Cyclades group and it is located east of Santorini island. A place with few permanent inhabitants (about 250), Anafi island is truly authentic and an ideal place to get away from daily stress. The only village of Anafi is Chora, a traditional settlement with Cycladic architecture and breathtaking view to the Aegean Sea.
Most beaches in Anafi are found on the southern side of the island. The most popular beach is Megalos Roukounas, but also Klissidi and Agios Nikolaos are frequented. Some cozy Anafi beach hotels are found along these three beaches. Due to the few visitors and the large size, Anafi beaches are secluded and perfect for privacy. Some are actually naturist beaches.
Here are the most famous villages and beaches of Anafi. Each location is presented with detailed text, map and occasionally photos and close sightseeing.
