Othoni is the third island of the Diapontian Islands and is the westernmost point of the Ionian and of Greece. It is in fact the largest island of this complex.

A characteristic element of the island is the Venetian air that dominates the architecture of the island with the traditional houses and the Venetian castle, which is also one of the most famous attractions of the island.

The history of Othon begins in antiquity where references to the island have been found in Hesychios from the 3rd century BC. After the Naval Battle of Nafpaktos, the island began to be inhabited normally. Its special geographical position due to its proximity to Italy had made the island an important point of communication with the Eastern provinces of the Roman empire.

Another notable sight of the island is a white cross in the eponymous area of ​​the island as a kind of monument commemorating the great massacre of many islanders by the infamous pirate Barbarossa in 1537.

The physiognomy of the island is similar to that of Corfu. Othoni are characterized by rich vegetation which, when combined with the sea, creates beautiful green beaches and coves. In fact, there are beaches such as Aspri Ammos which offers you ideal isolation due to its unique access from the sea.

Finally, hiking enthusiasts will find on the island an important network of paths around the rich vegetation, ideal for leisurely walks as well as vigorous hiking around the island.
