PlakChat / Web Cam
« Last post by John Gloucester on August 22, 2018, 04:21:37 PM »
After 20 plus years of visiting Plakias, health reasons have prevented me visiting since 2015 but I have checked the Web Cam almost daily, does anyone know why it's not currently working or when it will be restored, I'm getting withdrawal symptoms!!

Plakias / Re: This forum is commin' like a ghost town
« Last post by JBMouse on August 21, 2018, 02:40:17 PM »
Hi Daza,
              I suspect loads of people read the postings, but have little to say in return, a bit like me,. Unless someone asks a specific question that I can help with, I, too, stay quiet!
   This may make you jealous, but I will be able to give you a report on Plakias when we get back from there. We are going, yet again to Kostas, same room, in October, 10 days, with Olympic, and using Zacharias for the taxi. I would be interested to hear what you think of Arillas as I often like to take a last minute cheapy to Greece, and need other choices than Plakias, Lesvos and around Kalamata, but that are still small and unspoilt, is there anywhere left like that?
Sorry we won't see you in Plakias this year, enjoy Arillas, and we may yet meet again next year, somewhere in Greece.

Plakias / This forum is commin' like a ghost town

Much as I am unaccustomed to public speaking - this forum has gone very quiet indeed.

I am an avid Plakias lover but am unfortunately not visiting this year - BUT I do like to keep up to date with whats happening there and reading holidaymakers views,reviews and experiences in Plakias (and surrounding areas) with a view to returning again (IF Olympic reintroduce the transfers. That or maybe winning a few bob on the lottery!).
Heading for Arillas in Corfu this Autumn (cos its so much cheaper).
 
CQ, CQ - Is anybody out there?

I haven't forgotten Plakias by a long chalk and "hope" someone is out there and has some good news/reviews to add.

I'll be back! (but only if I know its still as wonderful as it ever was).

Probably hungry and following the squid.....think it was only a baby and of very little threat to humans. Hoping no-one caught it...the Med is its home too !

Plakias / Shark

A 5ft blue shark was swimming around the bay and the old harbour yesterday some great pics and videos on facebook the life guard was shouting to everybody to get out of the water its was following a guy on a lilo. Very unusual for this size and type to be so close locals said its the first some of them have ever seen.

The restaurants on the front road have really good protection from the wind, especially after the fire that hit them a few years ago.

Plakias / Re: Paleochora v Plakias
« Last post by stavros on July 16, 2018, 03:49:04 PM »
We like both places. Paleochora is bigger, but we found fewer good restaurants. The beaches are good, and the stoney one is quieter. On the music side, one Sunday we were there in 2016 some genuine kritiki musicians fired up in the square down by the harbour and were truly tremendous. We also saw Kostas (?) Abyssinios playing there in a cafe a few years back.  The people are nice and friendly, and it is more of a year-round place than Plakias; it can also be windy, but nothing like as persistently as Plakias. The main street shuts to traffic in the evening, and it is great place to stroll in a good atmosphere. Lots of the late season visitors are Scandwegians, and so far there have been no boorish Russians invading the place.

For the alternative beaches, they are not far away, If you like walking it can be done by foot, or rent a car for a few days, make a daytrip to Agia Galini or to Rethymnon if You like some more shopping. Anso travel in Plakias rents bike if You like that more thans a car.
Have fun there and enjoy your 18 days. We were in Plakias in april With Easter and had almost no wind on the beach.

Thanks a lot for the quick and honest answers.
We are in Plakias for 18 days, so hopefully there will be some days with not so strong wind.
I`m sure there are some boats to rent or little ferries to discover other beaches.
Thank you very much.
I am sure we will enjoy our holidays.
Alex
