This is a typical itinerary for this product

After being picked up from your Athens hotel at approximately 8am, you will be taken to Piraeus Port to embark on the ferry for Hydra.

After less than 2 hours by ferry, you will reach the famous island. You will then have seven hours to independently explore Hydra.

Hydra was once a destination popular with fashionable artists during the sixties and has kept a highly cosmopolitan character. There are no cars or motorcycles; garbage trucks are the only motor vehicles permitted on the island. Spend your day walking around Hydra Town admiring the stone houses with flowered gardens, lovely gift shops and picturesque paved streets. Donkeys, bicycles, and water taxis provide public transportation. Hydra has a variety of swimming spots and beaches, some close to town and some remote and secluded, accessible only by boat. Lounge cafeterias, port-side bars and loud clubs are found all over the town with options that can satisfy all tastes. Enjoy a day full of experiences on your own and in the afternoon, take the ferry back to Athens at the conclusion of the tour.

Duration: 7 hours

Pass By: Port of Piraeus, Akti Miaouli 10, Piraeus 185 38 Greece

We had a great day at Hydra. It is the calmest place where you spend a day in a colorful village on the beach, no cars, wonderful beaches, restaurants, cafés, souvenir shops. We took the water taxi to Four Seasons beach, spent 4 hours there and headed back to the Marina. Googled a little bit and found a wonderful restaurant that no other restaurant can compete with “Techne”. Expensive but worth every penny. After that, we took a walk through the alleys of the village and ended the day by tasting some of the local desserts before hopping on the boat back to Athens. One hiccup, and that’s why I’m taking a star off my rating, was the hotel pickup and drop-off. We confirmed our booking as requested 24 hours before the trip and told to be ready by 7:15am. We were ready at 7:00am but after the hotel receptions made several calls, we were sent a taxi that rushed us to the port and dropped us outside to find our way in and search for the boat, which were many. On our way back, there was nobody waiting for us and we had to get out of the port and find a taxi ourselves. This happened to us last year with the same Keytours. Perhaps we were very lucky with them, but this happened twice to us so far. Again, the day at Hydra was one of a kind and I do recommend, but find a decent way to reach there.

Beautiful island and getting the water taxi to and back from the 4 seasons resort was quick and easy. Wonderful day on the beach
