Those who choose Hydra for their spring break should make sure they find themselves on the majestic island during the Ash Monday three day weekend.

Just like the rest of Greece, the events for the Carnival celebration here peak on the last Sunday with lots of masqueraders wandering the narrow streets, dancing uncontrollably behind the king of the Carnival parade. Once the procession reaches the port of the picturesque Hydra, the party really takes off lasting till dawn.
