Pontikonissi is one of the world-renowned attractions in Corfu, meaning the island of mice in Greek. It is a place of amazing natural beauty and a destination filled with rich flora and fauna, certainly worth visiting during your stay on the island. Located at the lagoon of Chalikiopoulos just opposite the airport of the island, visitors are encouraged to embark on small boats and take a trip to this natural marvel. It is called the island of mice due to the small size it boasts, while there is only one building on the island (the Byzantine Church of Pantokrator). It is also worth noting that Pontikonissi is only free to reach on the day the monastery is celebrated, which is August 6 every year. This is when people are allowed to access the whole islet and not just admire it from afar. On other days, only a small part of Pontikonissi is offered for exploration.
