Vlychos Beach (Vlychos)

Beaches & Swimming / Organized Beaches

Located 2 kilometers from Hydra Town along the coast road, this tiny village has a larger (for Hydra) sand and pebble beach. There are also two tavernas, one overlooking the beach (Enalion) and the other overlooking the sea (Marina’s), as well as a small refreshments shop. The clean, crisp water here is shallower as the beach shelves gently, making this a good spot for children and families. Do, however, bring some sort of swimming sandal as the stones getting in and out of the water can be very hard on tender feet. Views from the beach of the mainland and surrounding islands are lovely. Chaises longues and umbrellas are available for rent.

A putt-putt boat runs to Vlychos hourly; it docks just in front of the clock tower on the Port. Alternatively, you hire a water taxi (€15) or get there by foot along the coast road past Kamini.
