Hydra, Greece

Hydra is one of the Saronic Islands of Greece, located in the Aegean Sea between the Saronic Gulf and the Argolic Gulf. It is separated from the Peloponnese by narrow strip of water. In ancient times, the island was known as Hydrea , which was a reference to the springs on the island. Hydra is also a municipality and one of the few provinces in Greece to have two municipalities — which includes the island of Dokos — yet fewer than five communes. However, there are no municipal boundaries on the island and its smaller islands. There is one main town, known simply as "Hydra port" .
