Hydra

Where to swim

At Hydroneta, your towel on the rocks, the canons hanging above your head and you in the water. Go to Omilos (formerly known as Lagoudera) for coffee or food and dives of the Spilia. Go to Mikro and Megalo Kamini where you can combine the salt from the sea with the meze from Christina's and Kontylenia 's small taverns. If you are looking for more comfort go to Mantraki, Mpisti or Plakes Vlychou (where you can also find nice fish and home cooking at Marina's) and Agios Nikolaos. Limnioniza is relatively secluded with beautiful waters.
