PlakChat / Re: Snorkelling masks

Thanks for all this.  As it happens, when in Plakias I discovered that my goggles were leaking through one lens as the mounting was chipped so I had to ditch them.  Even though conventional snorkel tubes may have anti-flooding valves, it can still happen that if you are breathing in and a wave washes over you, you can breathe in a whole load of water and end up coughing and spluttering.  Do these new masks protect you from such an experience?  If so, and as I don't have a pair of goggles any more, I might be tempted to buy one of the new masks.  (Incidentally, the masks I saw being used in Plakias were like the ones shown on the website in shinaria's post.)

Yes, I've updated the prices too.  Bear in mind, though, that the prices I have shown are not average prices charged by that particular restaurant: where I have shown a high price it is because I had a more expensive dish on my visit e.g. fish.

Yes, I own one and can confirm that this is absolutely fatastic. You have a much broader view, can breathe trough nose and mouth and you can even talk under water.
And even if you decide to dive a little bit deeper no water will flow inside the mask.

We've been coming to Plakias for a few years and have frequented Souda on many occasions
The 'bed man' is called Victor and we have got to know him quite well - he is a reasonable guy!
We were there at the end of June for two weeks and there were 'rumblings' from a number of people (mainly at weekends from Greek and Italians)
They had, apparently, had the local Police involved and we were being told that there may be a 'cover up'(!!) needed during August
I don't think Victor (or the guy who owns the beds) had any alternative
Could be wrong of course....

Back next year  - hopefully Souda will still be nudist. If not - it could be 'The Far End' and getting involved in a towel fight or two!!

We're coming over today and probably spend 75% of time at Souda....... can we get a confirmation that Souda is still nudist .... would be a shame

Friends of ours were using them here last month & said they were much better than the normal combo.
They got theirs on Amazon.

Yep, they are all over Amazon/eBay. Have read mixed reviews but semi-tempted so I could attach an action cam. Here is an example...

So he's happy enough to take your money when they can't fill all the beds, but in peak season you're not wanted, how two-faced is that?
Plakias / Back again

Back for our regular Plakias fix.
Staying with George again at Creta Mare.
First day here but place seems little changed from previous years.
Very hot at32 deg and little to no wind.
Ate at Geo Ma last night and it was  first class, as usual.
Will eat with Sonya tonight.
THe town is very busy with a good mix of nationalities.
This we find a good thing.
Now for the beach.
And will assess the sunned hogging issue.
Will give a full report when we get back to UK.
