Anafi travel, tourism info

Greek Mythology has it that Anáfi, a paradise of pristine beauty and “exotic” beaches washed by crystal clear waters, had emerged from the bottom of the Aegean sea to give shelter to the Argonauts. Upon entering the bay of Ayios Nikolaos, the only port of the island, you can see a marvellous Hóra unfolding as in an amphitheatre. Built on the ruins of a Venetian castle, Hóra is a picturesque image of whitewashed dome-roofed houses and narrow stone-paved alleys.
Nearby islands are Santorini and Amorgos.
Anafi is a place for holidays close to nature and away from the crowds.

DRAKONDOSPILO: The celebrated Drakondospilo (Dragon's Cave) stands on Kalamos hill, near the monastery of Panagia Kalamiotissa on the south-eastern side of Anafi.
