The Vlicho beach is located at the west of Hydra and you can get there on foot or by sea. The beach has gray pebbles, blue waters and its landmark is the church of Agios (St.) Charalambos, located just next to it. It is organized with sun beds and umbrellas and there are also taverns nearby, in order to enjoy the food whenever visitors are hungry.
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.
