Basic description of Erikoussa Island
Erikoussa, a small green paradise almost untouched by tourism and hasty civilization, lies in the Othoni archipelago, also known as the Diapont islands, formed by three islands – the smallest Mathraki, the middle one, Erikoussa, and the largest Othoni island, in the north direction from another popular tourist resort, Corfu. Island. You can get to the Erikoussa Island comfortably with a regular boat line from Sidari, or Agios Stefanos, two popular Corfu. resorts. Given its small distance from Corfu, Erikoussa preserves a very similar landscape. The sea is turquoise blue, with green hills full of olive and cypress trees. The highest peak, Santadro, has more than 130 m, and the eye of an experienced viewer will see as far as to the shores of Albania.
