Thanks, I had a look and it took a bit of digging to find the sea temp but I got there. Interesting to see that the sea is approximately twice the temp around Crete as it is for Enland at present.
I found that the graphics look more detailed with ventusky but that could just be my tablet.

Thank you, the only thing that appears to be missing is being able to select sea temperature. Perhaps someone else can find it.

The view today looks nice and bright although it is still looks quite on the streets, and a lot of seaweed is getting washed up on the beach on the southeast camera. I have noticed that the sea always seems rougher on the Plakias webcams than it does just along the coast on the Paleochora webcam I don't now if any one else as noticed.

Hello to you all and have a good Easter, I don't know if the following link will interest anybody but it does give a lot of info. It covers all of Europe and allows you to zoom in on areas of interest, selecting temperature, wind, rain etc. In real time.

This is the link.

Hope you all have good holidays in Plakias this year and continue to do so and may see some of you in September.

Plakias / Re: Little chapel on Plakias to Myrthios walk destroyed

Arrived back earlier this week after another wonderfull 2 weeks in Plakias. The little church is now rebuilt and decorated and waiting for the church fittings and artefacts. ( I have photos but having difficulty attaching them even after zipping.). We would like to thank Alan & Margaret for the entertaining late night chats and hope they had a good journey home.

It's a shame that the places you have stayed have not met your expectation, but at least you are in Greece with the wonderfull people and food.

Thanks for the quick reply, I hope you have brought plenty of good memories back with you to help through the winter. I checked the flight on the Manchester web site for departure & arrival and it did not show at all, so I went to Heraklion airport and again nothing was listed either way, even flight radar didn't find it.
Your transfer times were not to bad, we usually have similar times to Plakias but the ones back to Heraklion are 4 hours plus.

I have just been checking on the punctuality of the above flight from Manchester to Heraklion and return, due out from Manchester at 06:15 this morning. We are due to fly out on the 20th Sep so I tend to check the flights for a few weeks beforehand. The last 3 weeks it as been returning early but today there's no record of it from Manchester or Heraklion, as any one flown today or heard off changes.
Thanks in advance,

As it is now late in the season what are the odds that Olympic will not replace the rep for Plakias but will carry on with occasional cover.

Plakias / Re: Boat to Preveli beach

The supermarket on the road to Selia or On the Rocks taverna used to sell tickets for the red boat to Preveli if its still sailing.

These should be interesting times for us all, the exchange rate has not dropped to much locally, about 4 cents to the pound so not to bad at the moment as I was expecting a lot worse. It's annoying that neither side was willing to provide the comprehensive information people require, it's a bit like staying on the motorway or turning of down a country lane and hoping it takes you somewhere interesting before it gets to narrow.

Now that we are out of the eu does any one know if we will have to have visas to travel to Greece or other eu country's, will we have our passports stamped, do we have to go through the red channel (non eu) at the airport etc. I assume we will have the benefit of duty free again. Travelling soon to Syros then back to Plakias in September. Hope some body is more knowledge than me.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

Holiday Companies / Re: Les' replacement

It does seem to have been an extensive period of change for Plakias over the last 12 months. With the fire affecting the tavernas on the front, the loss of Babis and family from Gorgona, the demolition of the Souvlaki house, no more Les. I just hope we don't loose Angelo from Costas & Yannis from Ostracos as well. Ah well life goes on and I am sure we will all still enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of Plakias as soon as we start our first drink.

Hi Billy, I thought Les had a lifetime pass from Olympic to stay as rep at Plakias after all the good work he's done there. Probably a change of manager. I didn't think the reps arrived in resort until May at the start of season so I was surprised to hear that Les won't be back. He will definitely be missed by many and his quiz nights where legendary.
