How To Get To Anafi

Getting to Anafi is fun and adventure. There are two ways to get there.

1. Fly into Athens. (see below for recommendations for Athens.) From Athens, take the ferry to Santorini. You might want to spend a night or two in Santorini. (see below for some suggestions.) From Santorini, book a ferry to Anafi.

2. Fly into Santorini. You might want to spend a night or two in Santorini. (see below for some suggestions.) From Santorini, book a ferry to Anafi.

Things to consider:

1.Transportation during the retreat is covered! I’ll be providing a comfortable vehicle to shuttle us to our daily excursions and evening meals in town.

For added exploration: If you’d like the freedom to explore Anafi beyond the retreat schedule, consider renting a car. I’m happy to assist you with the rental process, just let me know! Just a heads-up, you’ll need an international driver’s license to rent a car in Greece, but they’re easy to obtain beforehand.

2. Please bring a yoga mat, if you wish to practice on one.

3. There will be an opportunity to purchase snacks and food items in Anafi. However, if you do get the opportunity to visit a market in Athens or one of the other islands, please take it.

My Personal Suggestions

1. Unveil the magic of Athens! This captivating city is a must-see, and I always extend my stays there whenever possible. For a truly immersive experience, consider basing yourself in Plaka, the heart of Athens. Plaka boasts a central location, making self-guided walking tours a breeze. Incredible restaurants, rooftop bars, and historical sites all reside within walking distance, allowing you to explore the city at your own pace and immerse yourself in rich tapestry of Athenian culture. If you’re looking for a culinary adventure, I highly recommend checking out the Ergon House, my favorite restaurant. Not only does it serve delicious food, but they also offer cooking classes, a perfect way to take a piece of Greece home with you.

2. Santorini’s stunning scenery comes with crowds, so be prepared! But in my opinion, it is well worth to spend a few days there.

Budget-friendly Option: If you’re looking for a convenient and affordable stay, consider the Grand View Hotel (https://www.grandview.gr/), located close to the ferry with shuttle service.

Luxury in Oia: For a luxurious experience, Oia is the place to be. While generally more expensive, you might find occasional deals on AirBNB. Here are some unforgettable activities if you choose Oia:

• Indulge in a winery tasting and pairing menu.
• Explore the island by boat tour – a truly magical experience!
• Embark on the scenic hike from Oia to Finikia (start early to avoid heat).
• Sip cocktails and watch the breathtaking sunset from a rooftop bar.
• Greet the sunrise in peaceful tranquility before the crowds arrive.

Wherever you decide to stay, please look at google maps and do a distance check. Santorini is a huge island, and it does take some time to get around. (Check out my Greece map below.)

3. I highly recommend visit other islands. Some that are easily accessible before our retreat, or after are: Santorni, Folengros, Milos, and my personal fav, Koufonisia. Koufonisia is one of the Aegean’s hidden gem! This tiny Cycladic island charms with crystal-clear waters lapping at pristine beaches and whitewashed villages basking in the sun. Despite being the smallest inhabited island in the group, Koufonisia boasts a relaxed atmosphere and untouched beauty, perfect for unwinding and reconnecting with yourself. Try to spend a few days on this island if you can. It won’t disappoint.

4. If you need some other recommendations, message me, and/or check out my map from my own travels in Greece. https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=1iQWQqO3hN13GvGKxn3htoCovU6olQiBo&usp=sharing

5. If you are just coming for the retreat, give yourself some travel space on either side, so you don’t have to worry about missing flights.Keep in mind that we are on a remote island in the Aegean Sea. 😎
