Greece Travel: Hydra, Poros and Aegina Day Cruise from Athens
When we flew from Manila to Athens, we had one free column in our itinerary that was unfilled with no plans. Knowing @rodelflordeliz who cannot stay in one place for a long time, he asked me if we are good to take on an island–hopping day cruise from Athens that he saw online via Klook. It was like an invitation to elope, all I could say was, “Let’s do it; let’s go”. 🤩
I didn’t have a lot of #OOTD or self photos in this blog. I am sharing with you photos and scenes of how I saw the islands. Some are taken by @rodelflordeliz, but most of the photos were taken by me using Motorola Z2 Play. Enjoy!
Here’s the description/itinerary of the day cruise tour from the Klook site:
Enjoy a relaxing day cruise to the three gorgeous islands of Poros, Hydra, and Aegina
Marvel at the spectacular view of the Aegean Sea as you go from one island to the other
Take a rest on Poros Island, with ample sunshine, crystal clear waters and white sands!
Stroll around Hydra, an island known for being a popular refuge for artists of all kinds
Visit Aegina Island and see the place that was once visited by Zeus himself!
Hydra is a popular summer destination in Greece. The most interesting thing about Hydra is, cars are not allowed in the island. You explore by foot, or by boat, or by riding a donkey.
We wished that we had more time to explore, and sit down and have a nice meal, but we needed to board the ship again for the next island.
We were only given less than an hour to roam around. We decided to hike the popular Clock Tower in Poros and see the view from above. It was quite a hike to the top, but the view was amazing. The Clock Tower was built in 1927 and is a famous landmark in Poros.
It was a decent lunch, but not the best I would say. They served us chicken, fish, Greek Salad, pasta, rice and some sweets. After lunch, we had the time to chill and take a nap.
Aegina has is an island of interesting character. It is best known to grow the best pistachios in the world. And with that said, I had to buy a pistachio peanut butter. 😁

I cannot really pick which one island I love the best. I would love to say Hydra, because it is so laid-back, quiet and “unspoiled” (just like how many writers describe the island) I think it would be a good destination in Greece for a honeymoon. 🙈
Thank you for following the Greece adventure!
