Plakias / Re: Still hoping to make it this year!
« on: June 30, 2020, 04:04:33 PM »
We are hoping to get to Plakias as well in October having lost out last year to Thomas cook. JBMouse we are also fans of Lesvos and planned to fly with Jet2 from Manchester this year early July, flights not commencing now until July 11th so lost out again. Jet2 planned to fly twice a week to Mytilini pre COVID.

I think that jerichrome means from the beach road take the turning by the Delfini taverna heading to Selia, then take the first left & follow it round to the left until you are above the end of Souda beach, keep on this road following the coast and you can drop down to two beaches, the second one is on google maps as Stavri beach.

Thanks for all the replys and it's interesting to read that it works or doesn't depending on which operating system you are using. I have just found out that on the iPad clicking on the link for weather then clicking the back page brings up the Plakias or Preveli option.

Glad to read it's not just me having the problem.
I was using iOS which as worked previously on an iPad, now when clicking the link it just reloads the page that is open, ie home page of forum.

Hi all, I am having trouble opening the weather link in the drop down box, the other links appear ok.
Any one else having the same problem. 20 days to go.
Best regards all.

I have brought my euros now for September, so the exchange rate is bound to improve.

An off topic enquirery, JBMouse you mentioned you were in Lesvos in June, where do you fly from as we were regular visitors to Skala Kalloni until the flights stopped from Manchester.

Plakias / Re: Tourist Event in September
« on: August 14, 2017, 11:51:07 AM »
Yes it is a annual event, and we have been fortunate enough to be in Plakias at the right time to enjoy most of them. There was one year l think it was 2015 when it was cancelled during the day due to poor weather, (rain and wind.) The car park by the bridge in front of the tavernas is usually cordoned off a day or so before to erect the stage so you get an idea when it is happening.

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 .

The Plakias winds are part of the summer Greek meltimi winds which originate around the mountains of central and Eastern Europe, passes over the Black Sea then funnels through the bosphouros and down the Aegean Sea. When it reaches Crete along the north coast it is then concentrated through the various north to south gorges. Plakias is at the end of a short straight gorge ending very close to the the village so the wind unfoturnately does not have time to break up before reaching the sea.
The winds show up well on the ventusky or windytv apps or webpages as mentioned in April posts this year.
Hope I haven't bored you to much.

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.

From the little I have read in the news it appears mostly to be affecting Spain, France, and Holland. Who have all introduced the new regulations earlier than required, (should start in October).
