Just got back from 2 weeks in Crete, We mage quite a few trips to Plakias because the weather was better in the south, especially the seawater temp.
Nice to see the difference with the first week of march when i was there.
Most restaurants are open, Tasomanolis not yet but working hard to get ready.
The restaurants between the parking and the harbourwal are all open.
The stores are open or working to open in the next days.
The beaches are cleaned from all the seaweed and the new pedestrian bridge looks nice. the roadworks are mostly finished.
Chairs and a few umbrella's are allready in place at the far end. spend a few days on the beach and every day there are more people at the beach.
Now back to work and 108 days to the return.

If you are travelling by bus from Heraklion to Plakias you need to take one to Rethymnon, and from there another to Plakias.  Here is the link to timetables and other useful information: https://e-ktel.com/.

Yes the dust in the air was very bad the worst locals have ever seen, in the photo you should be able to see the new harbour, some of the hotels had just finished cleaning and sprucing things up just to have to do it all again as the cloud left a layer of orange dust everywhere, it has returned again tonight but nowhere near as bad and will probably be gone by tomorrow.

On a better note the road works have all pretty much finished and Plakias has a new tarmac road from outside Kri Kri past Ostricos and right up to the top of the hill before on the rocks, also a new foot bridge has been built over the river in between the two main front car parks. And we have new street lights on the main road down the hill into Plakias.

It waa the independence parade today and it felt like the whole of Plakias had come out to see it, a real family and community affair.

It looks bad, confirmed from watching KritiTV, where they are reporting on bad fires in some forests and olive growing areas, strong winds breaking tree branches, and then an outside broadcast from what looks like Mars. The presenter was wearing a face mask, and with my basic Greek and the Greek titles underneath, I could make out the word Africa, but everything was red! That must explain the webcam from Morpheus.

Just looked myself. It will be the dust blown from Africa which was forecast. Never seen it as bad as that on cams

Wooahhh...just checked the Morpheas webcams for my daily dose of Plakias and both look like something from a horror sci fi story....various shades of green (yes...green) and what looks like a sand storm...you can't see the dragon or the harbour ! Strange weather or simply a camera fault ?
