Hydra has no significant beaches but swimming off the rocks is a tolerable trade off to visit this beautiful architecturally preserved town that was built in the short era of prosperity in the 1800s. Some claim it has the most captivating harbor in all of the Greek Islands. There are no cars and everything is generally moved by a donkey. Hydra offers a great night-life and it has been the stomping ground for some of the biggest celebrities and rock legends. Hydra is a little expensive but not as expensive as Mykonos.
