Escape from reality

Take a step back into a less complicated, timeless lifestyle whilst enjoying all the comfort of contemporary living on an island free from motor vehicles, motorbikes & even bicycles where the choice of transport is simple: feet, donkey or water-taxi.

Hydra offers stunning walks, breathtaking scenery and, above all, peace and tranquillity attracting international artists, writers & musicians keen to escape the rat-race and enjoy the unique, ageless lifestyle.

Hydra provides every excuse to be pleasantly lazy and simply enjoy the relaxed way of life from the island’s many waterside restaurants and cafes watching the passing boats and delight in the unique micro-climate which adds to the feelgood factor. The island caters equally for the energetic who enjoy walking along the coast; climbing to the remote monasteries; diving or just swimming in the crystal clear waters, as well as for those who simply want to relax and watch island life over a glass of wine.

Hydra is an island steeped in history and virtually unchanged from the days of its great maritime heritage.
