Looks like the Plakias wind is skipping along the beach at a rate of knots this morning !!

Pouring here in Plymouth too so shots of the beach and temperatures of 33 degrees over the weekend were welcomed ! Lots to look forward to. Will be out there in September too.

Me again, rattling on about the beach....however, given that it's 29 degrees out there at the moment (lucky Mr T heading out there on Wednesday) is that sunbeds towards the far end?  As it's pouring down here in Glasgow I am keeping up spirits with counting down the days - 109 to go !!

Agreed, the taxis will be the best option for transport to the surrounding bays, but further afield really requires a hire car (I may do that for one day for an outing).

Quad bikes, yes noisy at times if they hang about, but I would say that they are ideal for the rough tracks in the area. It is up to the person renting to consider full insurance. I'm not even sure whether the hire companies offer the full insurance, but I am aware that the usual personal holiday insurance doesn't cover any accidents and such like.

Maybe the bicycles with a little battery motor might suffice for the surrounding hills (I haven't seen those for rent)?

Taxis and, then, two feet are the best option...nothing is too remote around Plakias. Quad bikes are fun but they re not covered on many holiday insurance deals (as they young lady in Zante found out) and, although the roads are in much better shape than they used to be, many of the off-road paths are simply that...paths. They are not built or designed for quad bikes. There is also the fact that they make so much noise and many would not welcome that. That's the reason why you seldom see jet skis in the bay - too much noise and pollution. The taxi drivers will do their very best to take you where you want to go....and it will be safe, relaxing and quick.

So, who is the Olympic rep for 2017, is it still Elspeth or has she moved on and a new replacement in place now? I was in Plakias last June/July and Dom was there while handing over to his replacement. I now understand his replacement has moved on and was replaced by Elspeth (or did Dom return for a while)? Who is there now, as I go in four weeks time (yippee)!

Thank you for the information kind people.....
Another reason for getting the taxis to nearby areas is that the resort does not offer competitive rates on mopeds/scooters and there are no quads available. I think a quad would be ideal for getting to the nearby beaches and the rough tracks around. Last year a rental company said that the cliff side roads were too dangerous for quads. I would have thought that a quad on four wheels would be the perfect solution (as they are in other rural/rustic resorts on the Greek Islands). One thing for sure is that the taxis will probably be the safest form of transport!

Had pleasant and interesting conversation with Zak from Heraklion - Plakias and return. Nice chap. Bang on time and would recommend on that basis. Do our own thing these days and better than the 'interesting' Olympic magical mystery tour
