Hydra

 

Hydra is one of the closest islands to Athens and is popular, and quite unique, for a number of reasons. Many believe it has one of the most beautiful harbour’s in all of Greece and it is dotted with restored homes mostly belonging to wealthy Athenians.

There are no cars or scooters on Hydra which also adds significantly to its appeal and over the years it has attracted a large numeber of famous artists and bohemians including Leonard Cohen who called it home for 20 years. 

If you don’t have time to spend a few days (or weeks) on Hydra then its is really worth a day trip from Athens which is quite doable.
