Hydra, Greece- a 2 day itinerary


Hydra is one of my favorite Greek islands because of its small size, lack of motorized vehicles, and resistance to huge resort developments. It is not known for its beaches but for the large number of walking trails leading all over the island. It is a great place to visit for families as you can let the kids wander without worrying that they are going to get run over by anything besides a mule. The biggest town is also called Hydra (or sometimes Hydra port). It has restaurants, shops, and a harbour full of everything from fishing boats to multimillion dollar yachts. I could spend a week here just hiking around and relaxing with a book by the water. The views are amazing.
