tiny, welcoming, simple and beautiful

Seven miles off Corfu and seventy from Italy, it awaits your visit. Mathraki’s harbours, tavernas, beaches, pine woods, stunning views, delightful flowers, fish, pheasants, and discourse are poised to refresh you..

Mathraki Island – Corfu or New York

Mathraki Island’s visible population of 30-40 residents is the portal to a diaspora of perhaps 1,000 further citizens, of several generations, in New York ! In Greece up to five times weekly the clatter of the ferries in the windy waters accompanies goods, residents, materials, vehicles, friendships. Different from its larger, more Corfiot neighbours, Othoni and Erikousa, Mathraki Island emits its own singular message – simplicity, humour, empathy, change.…and a dash of Magus.

What can you do for Mathraki Island?

Accept the invitation of its plain hospitality; walk its 2km sandy beach or the “fiendlie westside rockies blakke” of the Northwest, journey the paths through its pine clad hills; be a friend.
