Stepping off the boat onto Hydra is like stepping back two hundred years in time. Hydra Island’s status as a protected historic monumental ensures that you will find no cars or trucks (an ambulance and a few municipal vehicles aside), no mopeds or bicycles, no chain hotels and no neon signs. Signs of modernity are most visible in Hydra’s horseshoe-shaped harbor, surrounded by houses cascading ampitheatrically down from the mountains, with residents conducting their business in the mornings and then socializing throughout the day in the harbor cafes and with tourists taking in the sights, visitors boutiqing and exploring, and both yachts mingling with traditional fishing boats throughout the busy summer months. Wandering through Hydra Town’s winding, cobblestoned streets, past yawning cats and donkeys patiently awaiting their handlers, one might be tempted to think that little has changed here since the 1800s. And yet, on a visit to Hydra you will have access to all the conveniences of modern life while finding it blissfully simple to disconnect when you really want to escape the twenty-first century. The Hydra Island Greece website puts at your fingertips a guide to all there is to see and do on this unique island, as well as a bit beyond, and to all of Hydra’s shops and services, cafes and restaurants, hotels, pensions, and private accommodation, and much, much more.
