Plakias / Re: Ok, 2021, lets go !!
« on: October 19, 2021, 04:58:08 PM »
We were in Plakias in September, having not been for two years and we were surprised at just how busy it was compared to 2019. Plakias is not the small village we first visited in 1995 and has now become a small resort. We always used to eat in the paligremnos at lunchtime and even that wasn?t up to its usual standard. The olives were so small in the Greek salary that there was no meat on them. At the start of the second week we had our usual saganaki and it had been deep fried rather than pan fried. It was so greasy we left it, not something we ever do 🤢
Sadly, we have taken the decision to not go back and now we just need to find something a bit smaller and not so busy. Any suggestions are very welcome 😕

Hi Daniel

Pleased you had a good holiday. I was just wondering if with the construction work going on it made the bit of beach near by and the Paligremnos Noisy as we have most of our lunches there?

We paid 10 euros for ours and it was worth every penny.

I had fresh Kalamari this year for the first time ever and I could not believe how good it was compared to the standard frozen stuff you get in most tavernas. Does anyone know which tavernas serve fresh Kalamari in Plakias.

As the exchange rate is so poor at the moment (1.08) at the post office, I am wondering if I might get a better rate in plakias. Would anyone be able to tell me what is at the moment please? Also can you still exchange at the Alianthos and car rental place?

Many thanks

In today's newspaper it says Greece does not intend to implement the additional security checks until 7th October this year. Which I believe is around the time it was meant to commence in all EU country's .

That's very good news

I don't think you will have any extra delay or additional security checks from uk airports, the additional checks and delays, if any in Greece, will be on arrival and departure at a Schengen airport. If passengers need to be at a uk airport before the 2 hours they should be notified by the airline. What these extra checks from the eu mean to the API information which we have to supply to airlines prior to a flight is any body's guess, as the API is supposed to enable the security services to thoroughly check all passengers before they fly.

Thanks it was the Greek airports I was referring to

I am flying in to Heraklion, but my friend is flying in to Chania on the same day. I don't mind the extra checks, but as we are travelling independently, we would like to know if we need to allow extra time.

I have been reading in the press about the delays at European airports as a result of extra checks at passport control. Has anyone experienced any delays upon arrival/departure?

It does look wild. I bet it's full of men playing in the water, that's what normally happens  :)

I think so because the webcam is showing that parts of the road look damp. It has been so stormy, just look at the colour of the sea where the sands been churned up.
