Anafi The apiculture in Anafi

The dry and warm climate and the winds of Anafi favored the development of low vegetation, which contributed to the development of apiculture since ancient times. Coins from the Hellenistic period which were found on the island bear the insect on one side. Nowadays a rural apicultural cooperative operates on the island which produces and distributes the renowned flower honey and thyme honey of the island.
