Mathraki is a secluded island located north of Corfu. It is accessible by boat from Agios Stefanos port in Corfu and receives very few tourists, even during the high season.

What’s interesting about the island is that there are no buses and almost no cars, so a boat and a motorbike are the most commonly used means of transportation. Alternatively, you can explore the island on foot!

Since Mathraki is mainly a free-camping destination, don’t expect to find any luxurious hotels and special facilities. There are only a few rooms to let around the port.

The only village in Mathraki is Chorio, on the southern side of the island. This village is nestled in a verdant area and boasts a wonderful view of the sea!

The majority of the island's beaches, such as Apidies, Arvanitiko, and Fyki are pebbled. The only sandy beach in Mathraki is Portello, a beautiful long seashore on the eastern coast of the island, with enticing waters and surrounded by lush greenery.

Mathraki is the perfect destination for relaxing holidays!!
