5 Best Places to Shop in Hydra Town, The Saronic Gulf Islands

Tsagkaris Hydriot Macaroons

Fodor's choice

Don't leave Hydra without some traditional almond macaroons in your suitcase. The Tsagkaris family, led by octogenarian matriarch Anna Tsagkari, have been lovingly making them in their workshop for more than 70 years.

Donkeycat Gallery Shop

Run by Catherine Tsimogianni and her partner, actor Sokratis Patsikas, Donkeycat, as the name suggests, is a quirky art gift shop. Pick up handcrafted memorabilia in the form of ceramics, paintings, jewelery, Greek-themed board games, and limited edition T-shirts among other things.

Elena Votsi

Worth a visit, the stylish store of local jewelry designer Elena Votsi showcases her exquisite handmade pieces—more works of art than accessories—which sell well in Europe and New York. She was the creator of the 2004 Athens Olympic medals and the design has been used in all subsequent games.
