“A great place for sea, music, children beach day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is the right place to spend an afternoon if you like to sit in the shade, have a good swim in quiet waters sipping your ice coffee and listening to music.
Also there is a beach with sun beds and umbrellas, you can catch a small boat to go there - 3 euros - and come back walking - 30 minutes if you feel like it.
Restaurant of the Miramare hotel is great- fresh food just by the water-
If you are looking just for nature and no music, do not go,anyone else you will have a great time there!

“Fun for the kids”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

This place is ok, the beach is nice and quiet the water is still, one side is quiet the other has more atmosphere. I'd say its a good place to take the kids as they have a water trampoline and some toys .

“Secluded beach on a quiet island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

A mall taverna serving traditional Greek food and a nice hotel with a bar and restaurant anchor each end of the beach at Mandraki on the island of Hydra, only a short ferry trip from Athens' port of Pireaus. The water is crystal clear and the sandy beach is the best on the island. Reached by donkey, water bus or water taxi, the beach offers a fantastic way to relax after touring Athens and other parts of the Greek mainland.

“Sand beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

Of all the beaches close to Hydra Town, we enjoyed this the most because they have an area on the beach that has sand access into the water. All of the others either had pebbles or there is one close by with rocks with ladder access into the water. Walking to Mandhraki took us about 45 minutes, so we opted for a water taxi costing 3euros each, one way, which only takes about 10 minutes. There are umbrellas with two lounges for 5 euros and also some daybeds (don't know the cost of those). The sand beach is on the bar/restaurant side with music on the loudspeaker. There is also a pebble/rock beach on the other side where you do not hear the music, but is still extremely close to the bar/restaurant.

“Wonderful swimming”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

Crystal clear, blue water you can imagine the argonauts sailing in to the bay... The hotel Miramare beach is great for families, due to the inflatable trampolines in the water. Plus the steps down into the water means you avoid pebbles. However if you prefer it quieter then choose the beach to the far right where you can't hear the music too loudly or even quieter is the beach on the left which also has a very good taverna and free sunbeds to the customers. (in fact at lunchtime I would recommend the taverna above the hotel as its difficult to get served quickly) The bay usually has a few yachts and cruisers anchored out to gaze and fantasise about, overall, the most lovely calm swim where you could be in paradise!
