Travel Tips for Hydra Island

monastery of Panagias Faneromenis

by MITNIC

At the port you can visit the old monastery of Panagias Faneromenis build 1643 with a marvels bell tower and a big clock. Witch now is also a religious museum. If you really like walking uphill - two an half hour- you can visit Zourvas monastery (I did not) with a fantastic view to east and west as thy told me…

Miaoulia festival in late June

by hydronetta

Miaoulia is a week long festival, dedicated to Admiral Miaoulis's military action during the Greek War of Independence (1821-1827). It takes place every year towards the end of June and it is a part of the Nautical Week celebrations.

Admiral Miaoulis is a favourite hero of Hydra: he was born in Hydra in 1769. He was 16 years old when he took in command the Ship his father owned and during the Napoleon War he broke many times the blockade of the English and earned many money from the sea commerce.In 1822 he stopped the replenishment of the Ottoman Turks in the place Nauplio and he managed to break the Turkish blockage and give food and water to the people in the place Mesologi. In 1823 he won the turks in the place Artemisio and in 1824 in Geronta. In 1825 he stopped the replenishment of Imbraim in Peloponnesus and damaged the Egyptian fleet in the place Methoni. He died in Athens in 1835.

Boat races, swimming contents, road races, torch-hold races and folk dances are part of the Miaoulia Festival that reaches its climax with the re-construction of the destruction of the Ottoman flagship (see additional pics)

Miaoulia festival (4)

by hydronetta

After the fireworks there is a concert held at the centre of the harbor and the municipality lays on food and refreshments for anyone who wants to have some while they watch the musicians and dancers.
On Sunday morning at around 10:00, there are processions and parades in full costume and uniforms, wreaths are laid at the statue of Miaoulis by local authorities

Lack of water

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

Although the island takes its name from ancient springs, it is now dry. While Hydra previously had wells, these were closed by seismic activity around the mid-20th century.

Today the island's water is imported by boat from the Greek mainland.

Porto Fino

by mindcrime about Porto Fino

Porto Fino is the third café we tried in front of the port, actually it’s the first one you see as you exit the hydrofoil. I guess this is the reason they charge 4 euro for a chocolate or a beer.

The service was bad/rude and definitely they had the most expensive prices in the row of cafes with nothing special to offer.
