Not a lot to see

There wasn't a lot to see in this museum. Understandably, it is a historical archive museum on a very small island. There were a few interesting things to see, including some very detailed model ships and artifacts. The most interesting thing was an embal

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.

Wonderful tour

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.

The Pirate Bar

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.
