We came, we saw, we were conquered …by Hydra!
The Saronic Grand Dame with its exceptional light and aristocratic beauty, stole our hearts from the first moment we set foot here. Thanks to the easy access (only one hour away from the port of Piraeus), and the affordable ferry tickets to Hydra by one of the many trips that you can find through Let’s Ferry, this island is ideal either for a romantic getaway weekend or for family vacations.
The picturesque port of Hydra
The cinematic scenery at the Port, where small boats anchor, and at the cobbled streets with the flowery mansions. Be sure you indulge in some amygdalota (Hydra’s traditional macaroon version).
Traditional small boats in Hydra island
The Andreas Miaoulis Monument, a panoramic natural “balcony” with a breathtaking view of the Saronic Gulf and the main town of Hydra just ahead of you.

Experience Hydra’s Nature
Once the hot sun has set, a walk across the island is a must. We suggest you start from Limanaki, go through the church of Agios Konstantinos and reach Kaminia, the picturesque fishing port of the island. Remember that cars are not allowed in Hydra, so you can travel on foot, by bicycle and by sea taxi.
The statue of Miaoulis
Visit one of Hydra’s Diving Centers and discover the island’s rich bottom (if you are new to this sport, some very experienced instructors can help you).
Tip: If you are on the island on Good Friday, visit Kaminia, the only place where the Epitaph procession takes place in the sea - a custom that goes back to 1923!
