HYDRA for 4 nites May 17-21..Hotel near port? Short hikes? Best views close to port?

Looking for a recommendation for a room May 17-20 on or very near the port (I know it can be noisy during the day & early evening).
Looking for some shorter hikes to maybe get a good view above the port. I've seen some shots from above the cannon (on the Left as U enter the port).
Would like to see some of the inland island too... Donkey Excursions?
or short donkey HIRES? (up to the Monastery?)
Going to do some water taxis to the other small ports--maybe I could walk BACK from one of them?
Take a lot of photos, and looking for some vistas, hidden beautiful areas, coves...
Very excited for the trip

Since there are no cars, it's pretty easy to walk/hike this island. You can get some beautiful views going either left or right of the port. We took a hike to the right, by the dolphin statue, and walk out to a day resort. It was very easy walking. We took a water taxi back to the port.
