HYDRA is also known as Ydra, Idra, Idhra, 'Υδρα or 'Υδρασ. Hydra (Greek: Ύδρα - Transliteration: eedra).


Hydra is one of the Greek islands where you will be assured of wonderful hot, sunny weather, stunning colours, little coves to swim from in amazingly clear seas. Character and charm abound and the island's impressive history is evident everywhere. Many of the mansions of the leaders of the Greek Revolution, which was launched from Hydra, are today preserved and restored as hotels and museums. The entire island is designated a National Greek Monument and the preservation order stipulates an island wide ban on cars, mopeds and bikes. Transport in the island depends on one of the largest group of working horses, mules and donkeys in the world.
