Without doubt, donkeys are the registered trademark of the majestic island of Hydra. Listed as a preservation area, the use of vehicles is not permitted in the port or pretty back streets. Therefore, these lovable four-legged creatures are the only means of transport for getting around the beautiful and hilly Town.
Apart from this though, a donkey ride is a must experience during your stay on the island. As touristy as it might sound, a donkey ride will bring out your romantic side and arouse nostalgia. And this is something that more or less all of us seek on vacation.
The price depends on the length of the ride and the destination. Typically, a 15 minute ride usually costs €10, while a one hour ride costs €50. The donkey "rank" is located at the port.
