Mandraki Beach Resort

Last updated: 30 July, 2023

Bang on Hydra’s only sandy bay, Mandraki, this five-star, adults-only resort wears its historic setting lightly.

Originally, the 200-year-old property was the home of Admiral Miaoulis, who led Hydra’s fleet into battle during the Greek War of Independence. Fortified Mandraki bay was the base for Hydra’s navy, and battle ships were built on the beach. Now plush sunbeds line the shallow bay, and you can eat sushi while you sunbathe.

The 17 minimalist suites and waterfront cabanas have beamed ceilings, arched windows, stone walls and soft lighting.

It’s a 3-minute boat ride or a 20-minute stroll from the animated café life of Hydra’s harbour, but it feels a world away.
