That makes sense, thanks. Hope they put in bigger sewage pipes as well.

Copy and paste: "Installation of new and bigger waterpipes.....Due to more and more buildings and more and more tourism more water is needed....A new pipe is brought from Kourtalioti gorge via the irrigation chanel road to supply Plakias with more water."

Difficult for me to see from the webcams but does anyone know what's happening to the seafront? Some type of building work?

Most of the building work is now finished, the hotel lemon has had a major overhaul and they have gutted the top floors re-built all the inside walls and new balconies etc,  I think it is just about finished now.

A new block of apartments has sprung up on the road to the far end opposite Alianthos Beach,just in the plastering stage now so maybe  finished in a month or so.

The new Taverner opposite the cosy bar is called "Throumpi" and is very good, its more of a traditional menu and Manolis the owner goes into the mountains most day to collect the herbs and greens that they serve and free dives in the season to catch octopus.

Manousis taverner at the back of Alianthos Gardens has had a overhaul with new decor, toilet block and updated menu, new staff, a must visit for regulars I would suggest.

Sifis is still as good as ever, Geo Mar has had some work done, but not sure exactly what there was just some building materials outside for a few weeks in Jan/Feb.

A few new houses springing up on the Selia / Plakias road overlooking the new harbour my house being one of them.

The taverner on the right just as you drive out of selia towards the small george ( I cant rember the name ) is good, Nikos the owner/chef has been working in the Plakias area as a chef at many taverners for the last 25 years and is now open again for his second season.

Its getting busy in the main town now, I must admit I prefer legal steroids it when we were just about the only "foreigners" in town on a night and people has time to chat, but now we are in the mid 20s I can't say I miss the winter weather.

Happy holidays everyone ... and Yamas !

Yes, hard to imagine Plakias without them. I heard that Xristos is also closing at the end of the season.
Can anyone confirm this?

In Plakias at the moment and enjoying our evenings in Lysseos as usual.  However just to advise that Lysseos will be closing at the end of the season as Lucas and Lito are retiring.  Wishing them all the best but we sure will miss them.  Many great memories to look back on.

I was in Plakias last week, for a very short stay, and didn?t eat at Lysseos - I wish I?d read this before going! I will really miss the place.

Wasn?t everyone?s favourite, but felt the same when Harakas closed. Both were there since my first visit in ?95 (which seems a very long time ago now). I did see Sonja and Lambros early in June, having lunch on the prom, in the trees opposite Alianthos Beach hotel. Was nice to say hello!
Plakias / Floods

Terrible news and pictures of the floods on Crete, all the news is from the North coast, but can anyone tell me did anything bad happen to Plakias, did the gorges overflow like before and damage the roads etc in the southern areas of Crete?
Best wishes to all those that have been affected, wherever they may be.
