Plakias / Re: This forum is commin' like a ghost town
« Last post by Dave&Les on August 26, 2018, 08:53:16 AM »
We've been here since 1st August & it's been fabulous,  nice temperature & less wind than normal.
Very busy early in the month but quieter now after the Greek holidays.
Not much change bit of progress on the new development, zebra crossing's (which nobody respects) two way traffic past Ostraco towards harbour.
The new Health Centre is now manned daily around mid-day for approx. 3 hours, that's opposite Apollo hotel next to the council offices.
Most things are normal & great to see familiar faces returning to Plakias.

We will be here in September so will give an update then.

PS forgot to mention the shark visit which caused excitement , baby blue shark so no real danger.

I shall only return when Olympic restarts Gatwick flights commencing in early May with a transfer. June is too hot for me. Olympic needs to return to offering what the customer wants rather than what Olympic wants.

I am rare contributor but regular reader. Will be going to Plakias in September for a few days, and will be interested as ever to know about current best places to eat and (especially) if there is any live Kritiki or Laiki/Rembetiko going on.

Just got back from 2 and a half weeks in Crete, did a few trips to Plakias, Ammoudaki and Souda. Far end beach was quite full, but it wasn't as crowded as other years. Donut man mad his daily passes, Ammoudaki was very crowded, but due to the Greeks on holiday in August, mor then half of the people wear clothing. Saudo beach was even fully dressed, far end no problems.
Restaurants never full so i don't think that there was as much people as other years.
Now back to counting down, returning in octobre.

September is always very popular for Plakias judging by the number of 'regulars' (never been described as regular before - usually extra large !) but I dont think there are fewer Brits visiting. Maybe just the usual pattern of visits and the fact that lots of people seem to have chosen somewhere else for a change - no harm in that. We'll be back as usual in Sept.

I normally go to Plakias every August and have done for the last 29 years but unfortunately I was unable to make it this August. I decided to have a week in September. I am amazed as to the amount of rooms that are fully booked.
Is it really that busy in September? is the beach full (far end) and all the tavernas ETC?
i am going to wait until next August now as it's guaranteed to be nice and quiet.
Have a good one everybody!

I guess people are using trip advisor and the plakias Facebook page more now?
