At the heart of the Argo Saronic Gulf you will find one of the most cosmopolitan and picturesque Greek Islands, Hydra. Cruising onboard your luxury charter, Hydra introduces you to an idyllic ancient Greek Island Riviera maintaining its unspoilt and unrivalled perfection away from wheeled vehicles and vast touristic attraction.
The port of Hydra stands out with its authentic, untouched culture offering you a must-visit destination to revive traditional Greek Island atmosphere with all day long entertainment ideas, intensive nightlife and beautiful swimming options to enjoy the crystalline waters.
Filled with only yachts, fishing boats, water taxis and occasionally a hydrofoil, Hydra’s port attracts many prominent visitors and is famous for its international art crowd scene.
Adorned with stone mansions, white alleys, unique architecture and timeless appeal, a stroll through the town’s impeccably clean cobblestone streets will convince you of its uniqueness. Hydra offers ample beauty to retrieve, either by strolling her alleys, enjoying the local bars and tavernas, her museums and art boutique shops or by simply escaping to find the perfect spot for your swimming and snorkelling retreat.
From your very first visit, a magic feeling overwhelms you since no wheeled vehicles are allowed. Donkeys provide the most common means of transportation to preserve the eclectic and tranquil life ashore the island. You will also notice many locals enjoying a swim off the platforms around the waterfront. Fine jewellery, works of art and mouth-watering amygdalota (almond cakes) is what you can buy in Hydra. You can visit the Merchant Marine Academy, the Ecclesiastic and Byzantine Museum exhibiting priceless icons, garments and imperial jewels with also a wonderful courtyard as well as the Museum of History and Archives, once an illustrious captain’s house.
