Hydra Island Travel Guide: 201 reviews and 601 photos


Hydra is in the heart of the Saronic Gulf.
My trip to Hydra was a very special one. At the end of my trip to Greece I was very charged and stress emotionally and mentally.
Maybe because I live in London I am always running and in a rush. I needed to get lost, to be free of responsabilities. Hydra was just what the doctor recommended.

My hydra was not only the visual beauty. It was a combination of senses that came together in my stay. Smells, noises, images that brought out a lot of memories. It was the right balance.

    Great poetic page. But the cat licking the leaking water is not a guy but a lady - only female cats have three colours.

    I felt like I was walking with you though this story. It looks like a beautiful location. I may check it out when I travel to Athens in June.
