You should not miss the opportunity to fit in a trip to the cosmopolitan Spetses during your stay on Hydra. It is just 20 minutes away. It is one of the most majestic islands in the Saronic Gulf and famous for its maritime tradition and remarkable history. It is the ideal choice for a day trip which has everything.
There are few beaches on Spetses, but there is a choice of good standards when it comes to food and entertainment. Do not miss the chance to rent a bicycle so you can take a ride along the shore from the Old Port to Scholes passing through Dapia and Poseidonio Square. The romantics should go for a ride in a traditional horse-drawn carriage which can be found at the port.
Among the important attractions, you should visit the Bouboulina Museum, the Spetses Museum, the Hatzianagyrou Residence, the Lighthouse at the Old Port, Anargyrios School and the impressive Poseidonion Grand Hotel.
