Palamida is a rare beach, located at the south of Vlicho following a dirt track for 20 minutes and after crossing a stone bridge dating from the 17th century. Visitors of this beach might be all alone on this beach with the clear water. However, they will be able admire the mansion of Boulgaris, where it is heard that Pasha Kapoudan used to live when he lived on Hydra. Many churches can be found nearby the beach as well as a traditional shipyard, the only one left on the island.
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.
