What To Expect
Enjoy the scenery and sea air on your journey, admiring the Greek coast and islands along the way. As you approach Hydra Town, take in the natural amphitheater of the harbor, where the quayside is ringed with pastel-colored houses and mansions from the 18th and 19th centuries.
Then, step ashore and enjoy hours to explore and relax as you wish. All your activities on the island, including meals, drinks, boat trips, and sightseeing are at your own expense.
A favorite haunt of artists and musicians in the 1960s and 70s, this picturesque island offers a timeless Greek atmosphere tinged with a cosmopolitan vibe. No motor vehicles are allowed — apart from garbage trucks — with the only transportation provided by bicycle, donkeys, and water taxis — adding to the slow pace.
Perhaps start by watching the boats come and go over coffee, and then delve into Hydra’s quaint, paved lanes. Admire the stone houses and flower-filled gardens, and browse the chic shops and boutiques before enjoying lunch (additional cost) in a taverna or café.
If you wish, seek out some of the pretty beaches. Hydra has many swimming spots and bays, some on the edges of Hydra Town, and some in more remote locations, accessible by boat (additional cost).
As the day draws to a close, perhaps finish at one of Hydra Town’s popular bars. Cocktail lounges and music clubs can be found all around town.
Then, relax on your ferry journey back to Piraeus, where your trip ends with a drop-off at your hotel.
