Europa Island is nowhere near Europe. It is a small atoll off East Africa, about halfway between southern Madagascar and southern Mozambique.

There is an unpaved airstrip on the island.
There are no ports or harbours, but anchorage is possible offshore.
There is no economic activity on Europa Island.
There is no public accommodation on Europa Island.
There's no way this little rock was going to get the .eu TLD. It's nominally part of France's .fr domain.
