Avlaki Bay (Avlaki)

Beaches & Swimming / Unorganized Beaches

Though not technically in Hydra Town, Avlaki Bay is just another two minutes or so past the canons at Spilia along the coast road. Located in a sheltered cove, the Avlaki swimming areaprovides a small pebble beach and a concrete platform at the bottom of a fairly steep flight of stairs. The water here is deep, calm, and clear, and Avlaki tends to be less crowded than Spilia. Climbing up and down can be a bit demanding, making Avlaki less appropriate for those with mobility issues or small children. Swimmers should bring all refreshments and any other necessities with them as shops and cafes are not close by.
