HYDRA - DOKOS ISLANDS
A special jewel of Saronic Gulf, Hydra, an island without cars, an ideal destination for those who love nature and seek peace and relaxation.
Arriving at the port, the nobility of Hydra emerges, revealing its greatness. Built amphitheatrically in a barren rocky landscape, the mansions stand out with their colorful touches, like a wonderful painting.
A walk through its picturesque narrow streets will reveal historically well- preserved stone buildings. It is worth visiting the Byzantine Museum of Hydra located in the house of Lazaros Kountouriotis, which is a typical example of the island’s architecture.
Enjoy your coffee or taste traditional seafood in traditional shops. After enjoying your swim in the crystal clear waters, take a sweet taste of the island with you by tasting its famous macaroons, before you leave.
Opposite the southwestern side of Hydra is Dokos, an uninhabited island that retains its beauty and virginity.
The medieval castle that adorns its top, as well as ndings of Mycenaean civilization, testify that this island was a station of many archaic civilizations, which make it a sacred protected monument of the Greek area.
Even the underwater world keeps secrets of ancient times. The oldest shipwreck in the world was discovered in the south of the island, which dates back to around 2,500 to 2,000 BC. During the Greek Revolution of 1821, it was Hydra’s warships shelter.
Nowadays, with its own incomparably beautiful cove, it becomes our peaceful haven for endless dives!
