Hydra has got a lot of beaches with rocks or sand and pebbles. You have got access to them on foot, with donkeys or sea transportation means. Common characteristic of these beaches are the crystal clear blue waters.
In Spilia, Hydroneta and Avlaki you can go by feet, as they are close to the port
Close to the harbour, at the west, is a beautiful rocky area with deep blue water, called "Spilia", which is ideal for diving. Some rocks can be used for sunbathing. There is a cafe-snack there to have a cup of coffee, a drink, a light meal or a fresh juice.
Next lies Hydroneta, which is located to the most beautiful place, under the cannons and on the rocks, to the same area as Spilia. You can also deep dive here and sunbathe on the cemented rocks. There is a cafe-snack there to have a cup of coffee, a drink, a light meal or a fresh juice.
After Hydroneta there is Avlaki, one amazing small beach full of pebbles which is lighted at the night. You descend from some stairs right after Hydroneta and you meet the beach with blue green waters and sunbathe places. It is situated between the old bridge of Agia Anna and the Boudouri Manor.
