Traveling to Greece: the Cycladic island of Anafi near Santorini

HAPPY SEPTEMBER FROM ANAFI!

We thought this would be the perfect place to kick off September - Anafi, a small island near Santorini, but without an airport and without the crowds!! Anafi has the volcanic landscape, traditional Cycladic whitewashed churches, and sandy beaches that make it such a hidden gem.

Looming over the island is the rock of Kalamos - at over 1400 feet, it's second only to the Rock of Gibraltar in the Mediterranean! Try hiking around to see the spectacular views. There are only three villages on the island - the port of Agios Nikolaos, the main town of Chora up the hill, and the small village of Kleisidi, above the beach of the same name.
