Othoni

It is the Westernmost part of Greece; it is a small heavenly place, with  scattered settlements, a few rented houses, a couple of taverna's around the port, relics of Venetian fortresses and a sensation of absolute serenity. Othoni is the biggest of the isles to the north of Corfu.

You can wander in the cobbled streets with the traditional houses, the old churches, the relics of the Venetian fortress and enjoy the enchanting view. The scenery with hills up to 393 meters offers endless possibilities for trekking. Rent a boat for the beach with the emerald water and the sea cave where, as myth has it, nymph Kalypso had imprisoned Ulysses.

On the island there is a police station and a port authority office, as well as a local GP.
