Travel Tips for Hydra Island

Hydra Gulf and Island

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

Hydra is one of the most impressive Saronic Islands of Greece. It is located in the Aegean Sea between the Saronic Gulf and the Argolic Gulf. It is separated from the Peloponnese by the narrow Hydra Gulf.

Hydra Island is one of the most un-spoiled and interesting of the Greek islands, is a small rocky island in the Argo Saronic Gulf, south east out of the Athens port of Piraeus and within sight of the southern Peloponnese mainland.

Nowadays it's very cosmopolitan, safe and one of the easiest of the Greek islands to get to. Best of all, the entire island is a preserved national monument and has retained all its XVIIth and XVIIIth century charm and quaintness.

I visited Hydra with cruise over the Saronic Gulf and its Islands. That was one of the strongest impressions upon me during this trip.

You may watch my high resolution photos of Hydra Bay on Google Earth according to the following coordinates 37º 21' 8.47" N 23º 27' 54.60" E or on my Google Earth Panoramio Photo 1, Photo 2, Photo 3.

Miaoulia festival (2)

by hydronetta

The Saturday night around 24-26th of June (exact dates each year is adviced to know well before) is without doubt one of the best events hosted by Hydra: Miaoulia festival’s highlight: the burning of the Ottoman flagship. From late afternoon onwards, tables at cafes with prime viewing space are reserved. By the time the celebration starts (at around 9pm) there isn't a square meter of space left along either side of the harbour. Many people choose (wisely thinking) to get into boats and watch the whole event from off shore. The whole point of the evening is the re-enactment of the destruction of the Ottoman flagship (as it happened during the war of Indepedence). Of course nowadays apart from honouring Admiral Miaoulis it’s the finest occasion to get hordes of tourists on the island.

Relax on the Beach

by iancoles

Vlichos Beach is a 5 minute water-taxi ride from Hydra Town. In fact there is a regular shuttle ferry that charges EUR 1.50 per person that departs from the harbour and also you can take a private water taxi for 10 EUR each way.

The beach is shingle / pebble and there\are 2 tavernas nearby for great Greek Salad and fresh fish. Highly recommended.

From Marina Zea on the east side of Pireaus, the hydrofoils rumble forth out onto the Argo-Saronic Gulf. They take you away from the bustle and noise of Athens to Hydra in about an hour and a half. Other destinations include Spetses, Poros, Aegina and points south. The Dolphins are on the south side of Zea - about 150 meters from where the MS Nicholas docks.
