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

I loved this beach! We also went to St. Nikolas beach but this one had more amenities like restrooms, more food options and accepted credit card. The water is pretty and the chairs and umbrellas are great and free of charge. It’s a little bit...More

Quiet, nice chairs, great water and great restaurant next to the beach. The walk from Hydra town is also stunning with coastal views. Worth the walk.

One of my favorites things to do in Hydra is to have lunch at the beachfront restaurant of the Four Seasons. The prawn saganaki is off the charts delicious. Great cappuccino's and fresh fruit for breakfast, followed by a day of swimming in Vlichos beach....More

The loungers were comfortable and there is plenty of shade. There was an art installation anchored to the sea floor just off shore. The service was a bit slow, and the bar limited. They also seemed to have a problem controlling access as we witnessed...More

This is an easy walk via a cobblestone paved walking path from the port. The path hugs the coastline and the views the whole way are lovely. Took us 30 minutes. The beach is rather small with brownish sand like all beaches on Hydra. Rent...More
