Hydra, Poros, Aegina Island..Need Help

Jump to last reply

Will be traveling to Athens first 2 weeks of October.

Does the 1 day 3 island hopper tour from Athens allow you enough time to enjoy Hydra? It seems to be a bit rushed for all 3 islands in one day. I'm really interested in Hydra as that will rather new experiencing an island with no cars. It seems as though Hydra is a must see island, but I'm not too sure about Poros and Aegina. Don't want to feel like I'm missing something by not visiting all three, but don't want to be rushed either. Which of the three islands would you suggest I focus on and I know it's personal preference, but we are people that like to explore, walk, people watch, relax, eat and just take in our surroundings. We don't necessarily have to go swimming, but would love to just have a relaxing day.

Will it be crowded that time of year? Should we consider taking the ferry from Nafplio or from Athens and is there much difference in the price and the length of travel to the island from either port? While in Nafplio I would like to have a day trip to Spestes so I'm needing to figure out whether or not I should make the day trip to Hydra from Athens or have both from Nafplio.

Thanks in advance!
