Started in the early nineties first visit was to Elounda very nice but will have changed I am sure. following year Peleochora . We liked the island so much we looked in brochure and said Plakias sounds just up our street. Stayed all over plakias first was Appolo the rep was called Jassinta it is a bit different now. We like to stay at Doras now quirky but so peaceful and she carnt do enough for us especially the raki topped up every day.
We have made so many friends there not a bad one have we found. My greatest friend being Niko Brokialakis you will all know him from the fish and chip shop. I go up to his house when we are over there. I miss all the nights in his restaurant ,also the character's who used to go in there .
My friends back here say why do you keep going back to Plakias , difficult to explain until you have been around Greece and hit upon Plakias.
I have met a few Cretan people on my journeys around Greece and the really are a cut above the rest , I don't mean that in a bad way but they are so proud of where they are from.
Was in Plakias in April absolutely fabulous first time that time of year cannot recommend it enough back in October it will be so different .

By chance really.....back in 1987 by then partner wanted to find somewhere with a nudist beach so he booked with Sun Med. I loved it at first sight....although I've never been able to locate the rooms we stayed in (somewhere at the back of Costa's I think). The rest is history.....we booked to introduce my (now) husband to foreign travel....have spent our 40th and 50th birthdays there and on Tuesday will be celebrating a 30 year association. Have been elsewhere but it keeps drawing me back.......enough said !

According to a post on Capt. Barefoots site (http://www.voy.com/84161/5129.html) Nudism is now prohibited on Souda Beach, it was OK in July.
Can anyone confirm? we're back in 10 days and wont be making the walk that way if so.

Noopsy, thanks for the newer list, it will come in handy this October for our only visit this year, but at least it's 10 days, more time to visit more tavernas! Can I ask if the prices have been updated from the earlier editions of your list? Especially bearing in mind the exchange rate, but we will not be restricting ourselves for the sake of a few euros, life is too short.

PlakChat / Snorkelling masks
« Last post by Noopsy on September 08, 2017, 06:30:02 PM »
When I was in Plakias this year I noticed a number of snorkelers using a new type of mask.  It covered the face in full and had a little breathing pipe protruding from the top.  Does anyone know anything about them?  Are they better than the usual goggles/snorkel combination?

I've attached the 5th edition of my list of restaurants which includes Throumbi and also Gialos which no one has mentioned on this forum so far.

Yeh, this all started on the 1st September, coincidentally when there was a massive improvement in the weather.

Such a contrast from when I was there in August. I would get to the far end around ten thirty / eleven with loads of sunbeds available and most of the day too. You just need a windy day to blow their towels away, if you know what I mean?
