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.



Customer Feedback
Kelsey: I just wanted to thank you for this website. It was very helpful to me an my family while we were in Hydra last week. The page about Freedom Ferries to Metochi was especially helpful when I learned that there was a national ferry strike on July 3, the day we were scheduled to return to Piraeus. The Freedom III got us to Metochi where I had made arrangements with a driver to take our group of eight back to Athens. It literally saved our trip!  Thanks again. (Mr JS July 2019)
