Shops & Services on Hydra / Transportation & Transport on Hydra

Because people on Hydra get around mostly on foot, they often hire muleteers to transport larger items, baggage, and heavy shopping up the mountain to their homes.

There are donkey men who specialize in giving tourists rides, and they often ride their donkeys around themselves; generally, however, Hydriots and island residents do not hire donkeys to transport themselves to their destinations (barring emergency, disability, or other necessity).

The donkey rank is located outside the Alpha Bank in the western corner of Hydra’s Port. This is the place to find muleteers who specialize in transporting goods for individuals and visitors. (The various donkeys parked around town are generally reserved for private use by businesses; other donkeys are often used to transport only building materials.)

Donkey men are happy to give your their mobile numbers so that you may call them to book their services.
