Hydra, GreeceHydra, in the Saronic Gulf is one of the closest islands to Athens and is perhaps the most beautiful harbor in the Greek Islands. It was home to Leonard Cohen and its waterfront cafes have hosted celebrities from all over the world including Henry Miller who sang its praises in The Collossus of Marousi. Famous for its nightlife, fine restaurants, B&B style hotels, villas, gold shops and traditional architecture, Hydra is a favorite weekend destination for Athenians because it takes little over an hour to get there from Pireaus on highspeed ferry. And what makes it even more special is that there are no cars on the island.
