Scenes of a Hydra Sunset

Greek island sunsets rarely disappoint.

As I scrolled through some photos, I found a collection of scenes from a Hydra sunset.  If you are in Greece for a short time and staying in Athens, I recommend taking a day to visit Hydra island.  Located in the Saronic isles, you can reach it in 1.5 hours via ferry from the capital’s main port called Piraeus.

Hydra Travel Tips

Cars are not allowed on the island. You can get around the way locals do: by foot, by donkey and by water taxi.

Beaches are best accessed by water taxi. You can find water taxis that stop at nearby beaches at the docks.

For more on where to eat and drink on the island check out my earlier post: Where to Eat in Hydra.

How to Get to Hydra

You can hire a private boat or helicopter.

However, the easiest and most economical way to reach Hydra is by ferry from the port of Piraeus. The trip is 1.5 hours long.
The companies called Flying Dolphins and SpeedCat have many ferries departing each day from the port.  You can check www.openseas.gr for updated timetables.  The tickets cost around 10 Euro/one way.
