ANAFI ISLAND
 
Anafi island in Cyclades - Greece.

Area 38 sq. km. Distance from Pireas Port: 145 nautical miles.
From a distance, Anafi, in the south-east corner of Cyclades, looks like no more than an isolated rock in the ocean.

According to the myths, the Argonauts sought refuge from a storm in the island.

Archaeological finds have demonstrated that Anafi was inhabited in antiquity. A road leads from the pictures que harbour of Agios Nikolaos up to Hora, the only settlement of any size, built on a naturally amphitheatrical site in the centre of the island.

The monastery of Our Lady 'Kalamiotissa' (18th century, standing in the precinct of a temple of Apollo Aegletus), the Venetian castle near Hora, and the church of St. Athanasius are among the special sights.

The beaches of Anafi, whether sandy or pebbly, are lapped by crystal-clear water. The local religious feasts are very lively, and so are the island dances.

A few rooms are available for rent on the island for those who enjoy quiet holidays close to nature. There are infrequent ferry sailing from Piraeus.
