Hydra is a very beautiful island, a real historical gem and is steeped in a seafaring tradition of a bygone age.  The entire island is a preserved national monument and has retained all its 17th and 18th Century charm and quaintness.  Hydra's spectacular attractive harbour remains hidden from sea view, until just before you enter the port.  A beautiful horsehoe of white painted, red tiled houses and huge mansions that cascade down to the harbour, packed with cruise ships, fishing boats, yachts and water-taxis, making Hydra one of the most photographed, filmed and painted harbours in the whole of Greece.

A short 20 minute coastal walk from the harbour, will take you along a paved pathway to the traditional fishing hamlet of Kamini.  A small walk-through taverna on the way to Kamini offers wonderful fresh food with picturesque views of the sea and passing boats. A 30 minute coastal walk from the harbour, in the opposite direction (North-East) will bring you to the popular Mandraki beach, offering a clean sandy beach with many sunbeds and shade.  Close by there is a small authentic taverna next to the sea.
