Exploring the Island of Hydra Sailing
One of the Saronic Islands of Greece, located in the Aegean Sea between the Saronic and the Argolic Gulf. The islands Hydra, Dokos and a few uninhabited islets are part of Hydra municipality. "Hydra port" - a harbor, around which restaurants, shops, markets, and galleries are centered, catering to tourists and locals - is the main town on the island. Hydra depends solely upon tourism, and Athenians comprise a great segment of its visitors. Cars or motorcycles are not allowed on the island - donkeys, bicycles, and water taxis provide public transportation. Hydra benefits from numerous bays and natural harbours, and has a strong maritime culture - the island is a popular yachting destination.
