I’m currently planning a trip to Corfu, and I’ve been intrigued by the pictures and mentions of Kanoni and the iconic Mouse Island (Pontikonisi). The views look absolutely mesmerizing, and it seems like a must-visit spot. However, I’d love to get some firsthand insights and advice from anyone who has visited or has local knowledge of the area.

However, I've heard that there's more to Kanoni and Mouse Island than just the views, and I'd love to get some insider tips to make the most of my visit. I'm reaching out to this community because I believe firsthand experiences are far more valuable than any guidebook. If anyone has been, can you guide me on how to get the most of my time there?
 
Visiting Kanoni and Mouse Island in Corfu offers a picturesque experience. Start at Kanoni for its iconic view of Mouse Island and the Vlacherna Monastery. Access Mouse Island by boat from Kanoni or walk across the causeway. Explore the tiny island, home to the 13th-century Byzantine church of Panagia Vlacherna. Enjoy the serene atmosphere and stunning views of the Ionian Sea. Don't miss the chance to take photos of the charming surroundings. Consider visiting during the late afternoon for beautiful sunset views over the sea, adding to the enchantment of this must-see destination in Corfu.
