Hydra is a small rocky island of the Saronic Golf with 3,000 inhabitants just 1.30 hrs away from Athens by hydrofoil.
It differs a lot in style from the other greek islands, the local architecture is distinctive and strictly preserved and NO private vehicles are allowed on the island, just mules and donkeys.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:solitude, unique architecture
  • Cons:walking the only option, bit pricey

    Your island looks beautiful. I was just in Greece in June and had a wonderful time. I have been watching the terrible fires in Greece in the news. So sad.
