||The quality and importance of the site result from the following elements: 1) The site is naturally protected in the area of Kalamos peninsula, because of the steep rocks and cliffs and of the lack of roads that make the area difficult to access. 2) It is an area of both great aesthetic value (especially the area of Kalamos peninsula) and archaeological importance (especially the area of Monastiri). 3) There are a lot of unexplored caves. 4) The site as a whole (and particularly Kalamos peninsula) is very important for the avifauna and for the mammals, due to its geomorphology and the presence of many refuges/shelters. The mammals populations are in excellent condition. 5) Its flora is rich in common species and endemic species; the later are of great interest, as many of them are rare aegean endemic species. For example, Anafi is the only locality where Erysimum candicum ssp. candicum is found outside Crete. Its fauna is also rich in local endemic invertebrates; the snails Mastus anafiensis and Albinaria brevicolis are endemic species to the island and Albinaria brevicolis contraria and Zonites anafiensis are local endemics to the site. 6) The sand dunes are very important for the conservation of the endemic flora.
