Hydra has been loved by many foreign writers, poets and actors for its beauty and elegance.
Rich, amphitheatric, with excellent neoclassical architecture it is definitely one of the most
romantic spots in Greece. As Hydra is completely car and motorbike-free, charming strolls in the
beautiful narrow streets are a must. Mules, horse carriages, bicycles and water taxis are also
there to help you move around.
Beaches in Hydra are located away from the town and are mostly pebble or rocky with beautiful
clear waters. Located very close to the mainland (Peloponese), one can combine a vacation in
Hydra with various cultural activities, or visits to close by Spetses, Porto Heli or Poros.
