Where is it?
Hydra is a famous island of great architectural and cultural significance. Made famous in the 1960s when various films where made here and international artists such as Leonard Cohen lived here, the island still attracts many artists and dignitaries. There are only around 20 small hotels/guests houses on the island which adds to it's uniqueness.
Apart from a few municipality vehicles, it is car free. Transportation of goods is mostly by mules and people walk everywhere. Sea taxis operate to various places around the island and across the short distance to the mainland Peloponnese.
There are 6 organised beaches on the island with umbrellas and sunbeds available for hire for a small fee, plus many swimming coves some easily accessible and some remote. Beaches are mostly pebbles, except for Mandraki to the north of the town and Aghios Nicholas on the southern tip.
Hydra is an ideal base to enjoy tranquil and a pollution free environment, whilst being able to tour and visit many historical sites such as Athens, Nafplion, Mycanae, Edpidavros. As well as nearby islands of Spetses and Poros.
Car Hire is available on the mainland opposite at Ermioni for around 70 Euros a day and is a good option to tour round the Peloponnese.
Hydra is a very dry island with not much rainfall. Months of June,July and August are very hot. March, May, September, October, November and early December are temperate. January and February are the coldest and wettest months.
