Swim, sunbathe, connect, relax, play, read and dine. The only ingredients you need for a great day at Plakes beach.
The hotel is naturally nested among the olive groves between the rocky mountains of Hydra and the pebbly beach of Plakes. About 1 km south of Hydra’s harbor, make a 35 minutes’ walk on the coastal path or take a 5 minutes ride by taxi boat and you are found on one of the scarce organized beaches of Hydra. Summers in Greece are definitely hot and surely most visitors during the sizzling months would rather spend their daytime by the sea to cool off and relax. Hydra island, despite its high popularity as a tourist destination, it is not notorious for its countless beaches not for its fine sandy coasts. It is a harsh dry and rocky ecosystem with a handful of accessible beaches.
Plakes beach is one of the closest to Hydra’s town and given the fact that Four Seasons Hydra hotel has direct access to it, offering many amenities to the daily visitors, it is ranked on the top among the organized beaches. As a daily visitor you may use the set of umbrellas and sun-loungers, as well as the changing cabin and the outdoor shower. The fee depends upon the season. The hotel’s bar is serving alcohol drinks and beverages all day and of course after all that swimming which has given you an appetite, you may choose to have lunch at Tassia’s tavern. This seaside restaurant is serving Greek mama’s comfort food straight from Tassia’s book of seafood recipes and has earned quite a few loyal customers over the years; all for good reason. The management of Four Seasons Hydra hotel aims at delivering an authentic Hydra-Greek summer experience without over-the-top additions and gimmicks. The sun, the sea, good food and even better company is all one needs after all.
