Friendly nuns and awesome views
We visited with Harriet's Hydra Horses, had coffee with the nuns and were shown around the buildings. The nuns also make small prayer bracelets which you can make a donation for. The views alone are worth the visit by foot or by horses.

Maria is an excellent tour guide. She is very knowledgeable about the history of Hydra. Maria took us to the important Hydra sites that were within walking distance, and told us fun stories and interesting historical facts about the island. We would highly recommend taking the Hydra walking tour with Maria. You will not be disappointed.

The day starts early in the morning with delightful breakfasts, homemade sweets and uber-fresh fruits from the Pirate's kitchen. The menu shifts after sunset, leaving space to a wide array of fresh cocktails prepared by the mixologist of island's best stocked bar, to enjoy in a laid back atmosphere with the suggestive views of the port.
