This beach is an easy walk from the port. Chair rentals under umbrellas with food, beverage and dining options nearby. Public restrooms available. A nice beach setting for a lazy afternoon.

All beaches are private and therefore you have to pay to enjoy them on Hydra. Considering this, Vlichos was rather unexpensive (4€ per seat) and the beach itself, albeit artificial, is very enjoyable for a lazy afternoon.

Vlichos was the first beach we could find from Hydra Town that had shallow enough water for our kids to swim. It is a scenic 20 minute walk from town and offers umbrellas, crystal clear water and a restaurant overlooking the beach. Our kids had...More

The beach is small but nice. No music so you can hear the waves. It is like a treatment for your soul. Great service nearby. Shade, seats, keep in mind that you need special shoes because there are a lot of stones in the water...More

Hydra is not really a beach-resort island. This is a serviceable, pebbly beach about a 20-mintue walk from the harbor. The shaded sun beds are comfortable, and will set you back 3 Euros per person. There is a nice cafe, and water service to your...More
