Due to the small size and lack of attractions, the village of Hora can be covered by foot in less than two hours. It is also possible to rent motorbikes for a small fee, but make sure you have enough petrol to get around without having to top up at the one petrol station.
Anafi is like an unkempt haircut – little effort has been made to enhance its appearance, but the shabby, rustic look has become defiantly attractive. The rugged landscape and simplistic architecture have remained untouched by the relentless demands of modern day tourism, you can browse the small independent outlets at your own leisure without swarms of people looking over your shoulder.
As beautiful as a myriad of colour looks on the lenses, the stark contrast of the whitewashed houses standing proud amid the muddy brown earth is strikingly beautiful – especially when the Mediterranean moonlight reflects off the pristine white walls. The Church of Panagia Kalamiotissa is the standout building, emanating a powerful religious aura from its sleek curves and stern spires.
Anafi is a Greek island belonging to the Cyclades archipelago, located in the Aegean sea, resting between Greece and Turkey. The ferry routes departing the port are to neighbouring islands, as well as to Piraeus on the west coast of the Greek mainland.
