Othonoi (Greek: Οθωνοί, Italian: Fanò) 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. It is located northwest of Corfu. Population 663 (2001). In the 19th century the island used to be the capital of the Diapontia Islands Municipality, which consisted of the islands of Fano, Marlera and Mathrachi. Most of the island's inhabitants can trace their origins to Paxoi Island as people from Paxoi were settled in Fano beginning in the 1570’s by Venice.
Othoni is the westernmost settlement and island in Greece. The main yacht port of the island, Ammos, offers good protection only from N winds. Anchor off either inside or outside the quay. Fuel, water, provisions, ATM, tavernas, bars, medical center and post office.

During the last years the island is being slowly discovered by tourists for its crystal clear blue waters, sandy beaches and exotic caves. On the western part of the island, one can visit the cave of Kalypso , near the popular Aspros Ammos (white sands) beach is traditionally believed to have been the place where Calypso kept Ulysses captive. Another attraction on the E of the island, is the historic lighthouse built in 1872 ( N 39° 51' 48" E 19° 26' 06").
The island has four beautiful churches of Byzantine architecture.
