Mathraki is an island and a former community of the Ionian Islands, Greece. Since the 2011 local government reform it is part of the municipality Corfu, of which it is a municipal unit. Population 297 (2001). Mathraki is a 45 minute boat ride off the coast of Corfu (4 NM from Cape Arilas). It has three restaurants that double as general stores, villas and “rooms to let”. Mathraki is a quiet island that manages to stay clear of tourists except for the occasional hikers that brave the rocky coastline. While the population on the record is high, inclement weather prevents all but 19 villagers from staying on the island year round many of them to the United States. Communally it includes three nearby islets including Diakopo, Diaplo and Tracheia.
