Hydra @ 10 perfect Greek island holidays
April 12th, 2013
We were happy to read an article on Guardian by Rachel Dixon about the idyllic islands with gorgeous beaches of Greece featuring Hydra.
Why? Wealthy Athenians head to charming Hydra for relaxing weekend breaks: cars, motorbikes and high-rise buildings are banned on the island. The architecture is unique for the region, with many art galleries and museums in 18th-century mansions.
What to do? Hydra port is the only town; the interior is largely uninhabited. Narrow streets lead from the pretty harbour to the cathedral, museum, monasteries, churches and galleries. Donkeys and water taxis transport tourists to small villages and swimming spots along the coast (most beaches are rocky or pebbly).
