Description

Mathraki is a remote island in Greece and an incredible location for a swimming holiday. The Diapontia Islands (off the north west coast of Corfu) provide a range of distances, from bay swims all the way up to a 6km swim. This tour is ideal for anyone looking to lose themselves in a more relaxed way of life for a week. Mathraki provides a fantastic base from which to explore the surrounding archipelago and the extraordinary Kravia rock formations. Expect basic but comfortable accommodation on this quirky island, fantastic swimming, delicious home cooked food, and unbeatable Greek hospitality from the Argyros family.
