Hydra - Ydra in Greek language- is the most beautiful island in the Saronic Gulf. Located in a very short distance from Piraeus (the port for Athens), this represents an exclusive oasis of bohemian escapades Athenians preferred. Hydra is one of the few Greek islands that has managed to avoid excessive modernization, keeping the air as a traditional and almost intact essences. The town is built amphitheater, generous beaches and port of the same name is one of the most beautiful attractions of the island. But beyond that, Hydra boasts an extremely beautiful landscape with a simple architecture with no congestion but also fresh air: vehicle access on the island is totally prohibited. Pedestrian areas are generous and distances (not very big anyway) can be crossed by tourists on donkeys or bicycles.
