Just returned from Plakias, tried to buy a copy"Plakias in the past" but everywhere the same story..."Sorry, sold out, don't know when there will be available again". So if anyone has a spare or unwanted copy, I am interested in buying it. Thanks

Let us know how you get on Roger. It's certainly something I'd think about doing again.

I was not aware of this website at all. Amazingly presented information. Great find, thanks for sharing Kalloni.

Three of us went out in November a few years ago. We all agreed it was well worth the effort.
We travelled Heathrow to Athens with BA, then got an internal flight to Heraklion. A very smooth trip, not too expensive, and a very interesting stop-over in Athens. We picked up a hire car at the airport, which we used most days to explore the area. It really is fantastic off-season.
We stayed at Kostas - arranged in advance by email. Other places are available these days to I think. I hope another board member might be able to offer suggestions.
Although quiet, we managed to eat and shop with no problem. Sifis stays open, and was quite busy some nights. I believe more places are open these days.
Ostraco (downstairs) was open, and very warm on the chilly evenings.
It was great to see the bay without sunbeds - and it was still warm by day. I swam most days, the sea was warm, if a little choppy sometimes.
I would say - give it a try!

In my day the far end was a clothes-optional hangout, is that still the case?

So I've heard of people visiting Plak during the winter - what are the options (if any) for accommodation, eating, getting there, in say December?

The Kafenion has been called many things over the years as different people run it.
I have always found it to be excellent.

Just back from a 2-week trip and we visited Xezonis 3 times with friends. We opted to do 'Greek Tapas', i.e share a load of starters which were always excellent.
It is made even better by the friendly staff including Michalis and Tania.

Or, of course, you could go by public transport: very cheap, and not as bad as you think.
