Where is it?
The town built since the 16th century on a rocky amphitheater has about 2000 local population. A large number of old smaller houses and large mansions renovated and carefully maintained are owned by generally high taste and financially independent people from around the world. The whole town is preserved by law, as it was in the 19th century. Hydra port is the only town on the island. The whole island is mostly covered with pine forests and under the protection of the Greek Archeological Service new buildings are not allowed. No cars, no bicycles are allowed on the island. Transport is by boat, donkeys, mules and horses, or by foot. There are a large number of good restaurants, taverns and bars, fashion shops, beauty salons, groceries etc. Fresh fish is sold on the fishing boats. World known artists, scientists and business people live part of the year here, many of them for many years, either in their houses, or in their yachts moored in the port, or in elegant small hotels. Life is easy and elegant with no extravagance of any kind. Prices are reasonable.
3 to 8 flying boats connect daily the Hydra port with Piraeus (1 hour by metro and less by taxi to the Athens international airport). The trip lasts from 1 hour and 20 minutes to 2 hours. In addition there is a regular passenger service by boat to the little port of Metochi (6 Km form Hydra) on Peloponnese. Metochi, just as other nice places on Hydra or on Peloponnese are reachable also by sea taxis. From Metochi to the Athens international airport it takes about 3 hours by car.
