Megalos Roukounas BeachRoukounas Beach is located on the south coast of Anfi, a good hour's walk east of the harbour. The approximately 500 meters long, quite wide, fine sandy beach is a dream. The water is for walking in and the beach is absolutely quiet. Fortunately, neither umbrellas nor sunbeds are rented out. Shadows can be found under some trees, unless beach sleepers camp there.
Roukounas Beach on Anafi is, like Klissidi Beach in former times, firmly in the hands of beach dormers, who have set up camp in large numbers on the beach under the trees. Despite the size of the beach, the beach sleepers sometimes disturb. For a long time the access to the beach was very unpleasant, especially in the east of the beach, contaminated by faeces. Luckily, in winter the rain washed most of it away. Meanwhile there are public toilets and showers at the central access to the beach. This has led to a noticeable improvement in hygiene, but has also increased popularity among (long-term) beach sleepers.
