Pontikonisi Island in the background with the Vlaheraina Monastery in the foreground. The shuttle boats that ferry people to and from Pontikonisi can be seen moored in the marina near the Monastery. Pontikonisi is home of the monastery of Pantokrator (Μοναστήρι του Παντοκράτορος). It is the white stone staircase of the Monastery of Pantokrator that when viewed from afar gives the impression of a (mouse) tail that gave the island its name: Mouse island.

Corfu Greece, is the most popular of the Ionian Islands. It is a very green island and a mixture of the civilizations that have passed through at various times.
The town of Corfu (Kerkyra) impresses and charms the visitor with its two forts, narrow streets, tall houses, arcades, Venetian-built Town Hall, church to Saint Spyridon, the corfu island's patron saint, flower-filled gardens, and balconies with their superb wrought-iron fences. Flooded with sights, Corfu is a small paradise on Earth. From
Paleokastritsa to Kanoni, from the Achillion to Pontikonissi  and  the Corfu's northern  coast,  one will  find crystal water scenic coves greenery and vegetation that 'sinks' into the deep blue sea.
