We created this page with information to support your trip to Hydra.

First part of the trip to Hydra is to drive from Nafplio to Metochi. There is a small port close to Metochi village from where you can take the boat to Hydra island.

Find the location of the port HERE.

Below you can find the map – click on the map for the full directions.

Check the schedule of the boats from Metochi to Hydra HERE.

Once you arrive at Hydra port, the view will be like this:

We can walk all around the downtown – which is the area next to the port – all this area is a pedestrian area.

For beaches, you can take a small boat from the port – they usually advertise all over the port- boats for the beaches or you can walk to the right part of the port, there is a bus station from where you can take the bus to some of the beaches that are at the front side of the island.

Avlaki beach (click for location HERE) and Kamini beach (click for location HERE) are two of the closest beach that you can choose for swimming.

When it comes to restaurant, I highly recommend you the Veranda (click for the location HERE) and the Gatto Nero (click for the location HERE). They both are located close to the port (the first place is a local Greek traditional restaurant and the second one is a more gourmet restaurant).

Hydra is a very small island and what people usually do when visit it, is walking all around the port/downtown which is very nice, visit a beach for swimming and enjoy a nice lunch!

I hope you will enjoy it!
