Anafi is an isolated rocky island at the south east of Cyclades with few
inhabitants. According to mythology Anafi emerged from the sea, at the command
of Apollon, to save the Argonauts from a storm that broke out and give them
shelter. You can stay at the pictureque harbour of the island, Agios Nikolaos, or you can move on, by bus or on foot using the only road to Hora which is built in the centre of the island at an amphitheatrical site.
Near Hora is the Venetian Castle and the church of Agios Athanasios. On
the east side of the island is the village of Kastelli with ancient Greek
and Roman Era ruins and not far away the monastrey of Our Lady "Kalamiotissa". At the crystal clear water of Katsouni, Monastiri, Megas Potamos and Flamarou
you can enjoy a relaxing swim. Anafi is a place for holidays close to nature
and away from the crowds.
