Hydra

Hydra is the favourite spot of many painters, authors and other artists who seek inspiration in these serene surroundings.

The buildings are in traditional style; decorated with wooden painted ceilings, marble fountains and furniture that brings you far in the past.

There are beautiful places for swimming, fishing, snorkelling, diving, windsurfing, water skiing, as well as walking and climbing.

Places to visit are old monasteries, old mansions, the Historical Archives Museum, the local branch of the school of fine arts and the merchant marine Academy.

A big festival takes place in Hydra the weekend closest to the 21st of June under the name Miaoulia.

On holy Friday though an old custom takes place in a location called Agia Paraskevi, where the Epitaph immerses into the sea to bless the water. And every year in July the international puppet festival.

Hydra's role in the Greek War of Independence has earned it a secure place in the Greek history books. It's extraordinary harbour piled with tall elegant mansions of sea captains serves as a model to artists that inhabit the island these days.

Passenger ships connect Hydra with Piraeus, 35 miles away as well as the other Saronic islands and ports several times a day.

Several hydrofoils a day from Zea Marina (Piraeus), some going to Hydra in about 1 1/2 hours.

Frequent hydrofoil connections to Poros and Spetses, and Nafplion, Porto Heli and Ermioni, in the Peloponnese, less frequently to other Peloponnese ports and Kythera.

Hydra can be visited as part of a one day cruise starting from Piraeus, visiting Poros and Aegina on its way.

This is a very popular place on summer months. It is absolutely impossible to come to Hydra in the summer months and expect to find accommodation without reservation.
