Anafi is a small island, located to the east of Santorini. Its shape is triangular and its land is mostly rocky. This island, because of its size, hasn't been too much developed in tourism so it is a great destination for peace and quiet seekers. According to the myth, Anafi rose from the sea to provide shelter for the Argonatus and to protect them from the wild sea. It has got a semi-mountainous structure with Vigla, Kalamos and Agios Ioannis Theologos being their highest peaks. Anafi is also provided with a number of beaches, most of them with fine soft sand and some others pebbled.

The port of Agios Nikolaos is the busiest part of Anafi. It is provided with the basic facilities a tourist would need, such as taverns and rooms to let. From there, some small tour boats begin to make the round of the island and make some stops to beaches. Otherwise, the island can be crossed on foot or on mule back. There is one local bus but the itineraries are rather rare. Chora village, the capital of Anafi, is built on a natural amphitheatrical site at the centre of the island. It is located 2 km from the port. Chora is characterized by a number of small churches, its white houses and paved roads. A lot of sightseeing can be done on Anafi. The 18th century Monastery of Panagia Kalamiotissa is an important religious center for the island.
