Day Trip to Hydra Island, Greece – this beautiful Greek island is nestled in the Aegean Sea. There are no cars – the only modes of transportation are walking, bicycles and donkeys! This is one of the most beautiful towns in Greece. A MUST on your trip!
Our day trip to Hydra Island was a highlight of my trip to Greece. I LOVED this little fishing town. My only regret was that we didn’t have more time to explore the island. Our trip over to Hydra was delayed a few hours by the weather.
Hydra is one of the Saronic Islands of Greece, located in the Aegean Sea between the Saronic Gulf and the Argolic Gulf. It gained fame from the 1957 movie Boy on a Dolphin starring Sophia Loren. Leonard Cohen also owned a home on Hydra.
One really interesting fact about Hydra is there are no cars allowed! The only way to get around is by bike or donkey! Keep reading to see why I fell in love with this beautiful port city.
