Enjoy your swim and diving under the castle's cannons. The beach of Hydronetta is next to the one of Spilia and one can reach it by walking west from the town of Hydra. There is no sand here to, just rocks for diving. The place has a wild beauty. Perhaps it is the best place of the island to enjoy the sunset.
The harbor of Hydra is always very crowded in high season and is best avoided at that time. Early spring is the best time to visit, when it is usually possible to moor either on the south quay or the inside of the north breakwater (where, however, it shallows as you go further in).
Lagoudera, the previous name of Omilos bar-restaurant, was one of the most famous restaurants in Greece, visited by many international celebrities, such as, The Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Jackie Kennedy, Maria Callas and Aristotelis Onassis. It is situated in an excellent location, with amazing sea views and atmosphere.
A particular picturesque fishing port is the large unorganized Kamini beach just 20 minutes from the town of Hydra. Ideal place to stay overnight as there are many accommodations or to just enjoy the authentic traditional cuisine at the surrounding restaurants.
