Hydra Island Tours

Hydra Island Greece Hydra
The town, which is the center of the whole island, is built around its port. To the right and to the left from the entrance of the port, there are the parapets with the canons, which protected the city. It is probably the only place where cars, motorbikes and bicycles are prohibited, transfers are being made only by donkeys, water taxis, speed boats and your own feet. Hydra is an island of unique beauty due to its architecture, with its small alleys and its beautiful stone mansions with their yards and small gardens and its 360 churches. Along with the historical back round of the island Hydra has become an important tourist center of Greece, known for offering quiet life to its visitors during the day and exciting nightlife starting from the restaurants, to bars and discos either with Greek or foreign music. The rocky beaches along with the blue waters give a wild beauty to Hydra.
