Water taxis whisk travelers from the quaint little harbor to isolated beaches and tavernas.Behind each mule train toils a human pooper-scooper; I imagine picking up after your beast is required.In 1956, Sophia Loren came here to play a Hydriot sponge diver in the film “Boy on a Dolphin,” propelling the little island onto the international stage.(A statue honoring the film sits along the coastal path just outside of town.) By the 1960s, Hydra had become a favorite retreat for celebrities, well-heeled tourists, and artists and writers, who drew inspiration from the idyllic surroundings.Locals, proud of the extravagant yachts moored for the night, like to tell of movie stars who make regular visits.Little Hydra, which has produced military heroes, influential aristocrats and political leaders, is packed with history.Hydra also has a few small museums, including a historical museum and a wealthy shipping magnate’s mansion.The one swimming spot right in Hydra town has steps that lead down from the sidewalk to a series of small concrete platforms with ladders into the sea.Kaminia’s pocket-size harbor shelters the fishing boats, and its taverna, perched on a bluff above, boasts my favorite irresistible dinner views on Hydra.Dice clatter on backgammon boards, entrepreneurial cats seem busy, children chase soccer balls, and in a low-profile corner, a tethered goat chews on something inedible.
