You know what, the one day cruise is nice, apparently lots of people have done it, but I just was not very fond of the island. I liked Aegina, but that was because I got to stay the night there. Hydra and Poros were very bland, and actually the only places I’ve been to that I think were a waste of time.over 6 years ago
I really enjoyed Hydra tremendously. I went there on one of the boat tours that goes to Hydra, Poros and Aegina so I only had about an hour to spend there, but I would love to go back and spend a few days. The things that differentiated it from the other two islands was the lack of cars and the abundance of cats!
Aside from just being beautiful, the mood was very laid back and calm and, considering that I came with a boat of tourists (and the island subsits on tourism), once you get past the ring of shops in the harbor, it doesn’t feel “touristy” in that tacky, overcrowded way. I hiked around with my boyfriend and we hardly saw anyone else except a few old ladies who said hello to us in Greek from their porches.
The stray cats here also seemed much less feral than the ones in Athens and many of them would let me pet them.over 6 years ago
