1993*, we happened to join a naturist club (here) and some friends had been to Plakias for 2 weeks in the May - enjoyed it, loved the sound of the naturist beach. Husband #1 and I followed them the following August. Don't know if it was SunMed or Inspirations now, who we went with. Their office was right next to the Forum, set back from the road. They used to bring a big coach all along the front then, husband not impressed with dragging 2 heavy suitcases from the coach up the hill. Stayed at Stella on B&B, not v impressed with lack of loo seats, tiny balcony (struggle to get 2 people on it) breakfasts diabolically sparse - difficult for me as I am diabetic, so we breakfasted out every day. Stella invariably unsmiling. Not sure where Far End started because no-one on it, we weren't very experienced naturist then, didn't feel comfortable there as weren't positive it was the correct place. Meltemi a nightmare. Met a v nice couple at Stella though. That helped! After a few days we hired a car and went other places and enjoyed it all in all, but not the best holiday we ever had.
* now I've got my thinking head on, the year was 1983, so our first visit was 1984!!!! (I'm glad I'm not an Epsilon ....)
New beginning in 1998, very skint, took a very last minute VERY cheapie to Kos, had a wonderful time, went to Tingaki most days. Man (who had only previously been to France, Austria and Germany) said he thought he liked Greece. Had other holidays on Greek islands. Wondered about Plakias a few years ago, found the Forum. Stuck it in Favourites and toyed with the idea from time to time. Last year eventually decided to go for it. Had a week in early Oct - fab! Took the walking boots and poles - but was far too hot for us, to walk any further than the Far End!
We were going again in May but were side-tracked to Makrigialos. OK, food very good, but Far End equivalent too far and too difficult for me (I'm clumsy and literally still have scars from that holiday, the scabs have not long disappeared!)
We have just booked a week in Plak at KC from 05 Oct, from B'ham - for under £400! - about £60 less than last year! Olympic - price reduced on Friday lunchtime whilst I was still toying with it, so we booked it last night!
So has anyone got KC's email or phone no, so we can ask for a front room at Zorba's?
