About Hydra

Hydra, also known as Ydra, is a small Greek island located in the Aegean Sea, approximately 70 kilometers southwest of Athens. Hydra is known for its picturesque charm, rich history, and absence of motor vehicles, making it a unique and tranquil destination. One of the distinct features of Hydra is its ban on motorized vehicles, including cars, motorcycles, and even bicycles. The primary modes of transportation on Hydra are donkeys, water taxis, and walking. The absence of vehicles enhances the island’s charm and allows visitors to enjoy peaceful strolls through its beautiful streets. The island’s natural beauty is another prominent feature of Hydra. It is characterized by rugged coastlines, crystal-clear waters, and rocky hillsides covered in lush vegetation. There are numerous secluded coves and beaches, such as Vlychos, Mandraki, and Kamini, where visitors can relax and enjoy the tranquility of the surroundings. The place attracts a mix of tourists seeking relaxation, history, and natural beauty. It is a popular day trip destination from Athens, with regular ferry services connecting the two. However, many visitors choose to spend several days on Hydra to fully immerse themselves in its unique atmosphere.
