Accessible only by boat, the trip is pleasant and enjoyable. The beach itself is quiet and a place to time out. You can hire chairs and an umbrella for 8 euro for the day. There is a toilet facility and a canteen that sells fresh...More

Perfect for swimming as it's sheltered from the open sea. The little beach bar is simple but serves everything you will need for summer cravings. Best music!

The accomodation is minimal but just enough: sunbeds, umbrellas and one bar for drinks and food. Not a whole lot of choice but this fits the amazing nature around. Beautiful clean water and nothing between you and the horizon. No sand beach so watch your...More

You should definitely visit this beach if you came to Hydra and search for a nice beach. The way there is quite long but it worths it. They will offer you water taxi for 100-200 euros but there are a lot of ferries which go...More

Crystal clear water, regular ferries out there for 15 Euros per person. Not that many people out there either, which makes it pretty quiet.

Not overcrowded, nice bar with ok prices, worth the little longer trip (15eur) , probably the best beach near hydra

There is no taverna, but there is a small bar with some pre made sandwiches, water, non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks, and snacks. It was just fine for its purpose. Not gourmet, but just what you need for a lazy day at the... More
