According to the myth, the island of Anafi emerged from the depths of the Aegean Sea by the command of God Apollo to host the Argonauts, when they needed shelter. Located east of Santorini, this is an island still untouched by mass tourism. As a result, landscapes of unspoiled natural beauty await you. Among them, the finest Anafi beaches that will make your heart beat faster!
If you really love watching the sunset on the beach, then choose Klisidi beach on the island of Anafi. It is found on the southern part of the island and features golden sand and azure waters. It can be reached on foot from the port, in about 20 minutes. Tamarisk trees offer the sweetest shade and protection against the sun. Nearby, you can find rooms to let and a few fish taverns. Then, for those seeking a beach really close to the port, Agios Nikolaos is just the place to be. In fact, this is the name of the island’s main port and the beach is sandy, with a few options for coffee and drinks within short distance. So this is a wonderful choice for quick dives.
Moving on with the best Anafi beaches to visit, we find Flamourou. This is a remote little cove on the southern part of the island, just like Katsouni beach. These are both perfect for travelers, who value their privacy a great deal and do not wish to compromise it, for the sake of pleasure. Isolated yet mesmerizing, they should be added to your “must-see” list. And for those that enjoy a good camping site, Roukounas beach definitely ranks at the top. This is one of the largest beaches on the island and there is also a place for nudists to indulge in swimming. And again, few tamarisk trees provide natural shade.
Other Anafi beaches include Megas Potamos and Kameni Lagkada, Agios Ioannis and Agioi Anargyroi, Prasa and Agios Spiridon. Enjoy!
