So far on our list of amazing Greek islands you’ve probably never visited, we’ve spoken about places that have been off the beaten track and unspoilt by commercial tourism. They’ve all had their own unique charm and personal plus points.
But if what you’re looking for in a Greek island is total seclusion, then the island of Anafi will be right up your street. With hardly any tourist trade, this remote island is the perfect place for switching off from the stresses and strains of modern life. The journey here by ferry from the mainland is long, but completely worth it for uninterrupted peace and tranquillity. Anafi is one of the furthest islands from the mainland, and its landscape is barren and windswept.
But don’t let that put you off, many liken this island to the far fancier Santorini, without the throngs of holiday makers and commercialised hotels and tourist hot spots. Many firmly believe that the beaches here are far nicer than those on Santorini, too. With only one village on the entire island, which you’ll find teetering atop a volcanic hill, when you visit, you truly will feel like you’re on top of the world!
