Hydra a romantic destination

HYDRA- Hydra is an island with many admirers, among the international community of writers, actors and artists in general. Perhaps because of its unique charm, or perhaps because of its rare combination of simplicity and sophistication. You can walk, under the shade of grapevines, on its narrow cobblestone streets, thatI lace around the old houses, following their wild climb, almost to the top of the steep hills. Or you can just rest, lying on a rock by the sea. No matter what, Hydra will charm you just the same. Hydra, with its historically - preservedI architecture, its numerous churches, and its donkey transportation, is one of the most picturesque islands.

Places to moor

Hydra Main Harbor.If you want to tie in the main harbor I suggest you get in early, especially on the weekends as it is a favorite for the Greeks. Care must be taken when they are N-NW winds and you should opt for the N mole. Due to the harbor is overcrowded in the summer it is usually for yachts to be three out from the quay. Crossed anchors are a common event so dont be surprised. Water is available on the quay, as well as provisioning.;

MandrakiThis bay is located 1/2 of mile E of Hydra. It is a nice bay for a swim There are taverns ashore. The bay is fairly sheltered except to northerly winds.

Petassi - There are several small coves in the area that can be used

Ag. Nikolaos This is a beautiful bay with nice surroundings and crystal clear water for a swim but can only be used in calm weather.
