Ananes (Greek: Ανάνες) (sometimes called the Ananes Rocks[1]) is a group of 7 small uninhabited.[2] islets in Greece's Aegean Sea, on the outskirts of the Cyclades island group. They are arranged in a crescent-like shape from southwest to due north, and comprise the south-westernmost islands of the Cyclades. The nearest islands are Milos and Antimilos to the northeast and Falkonera to the northwest.
