Cars are forbidden on the island of Hydra. The beach rarely hosts other visitors. The distance to the beach is about 150 meters via our private house path which connects the complex with the shore and our small mooring, (capable for small boats upto to 8 meters LOA).
During the fall of 1904, King George I of Greece was hosted here on a hunting excursion, as well as the Prime Minister El. Venizelos in 1917.
