Cruises to Hydra

About Hydra

Only 90 minutes away from Athens by hydrofoil, Hydra is one of the closest islands to mainland Greece, making it a favorite beach getaway among the Greeks. The buildings here are white stucco, with red Mediterranean-style roofs, and cluster around a perfect horseshoe-shaped harbor.

Only smaller cruise ships from companies such as Azamara, Windstar and Sea Dream stop in Hydra. The island provides a welcome beach break from tours of ruins in this area of the world, although bring your water shoes when you go, as the shores here are pebbly.

Loved Hydra. Small town, yes, but we found the area immediately around the harbor to be charming and enjoyed just walking around.... Read More
