We're coming over today and probably spend 75% of time at Souda....... can we get a confirmation that Souda is still nudist .... would be a shame

Friends of ours were using them here last month & said they were much better than the normal combo.
They got theirs on Amazon.

Yep, they are all over Amazon/eBay. Have read mixed reviews but semi-tempted so I could attach an action cam. Here is an example...

So he's happy enough to take your money when they can't fill all the beds, but in peak season you're not wanted, how two-faced is that?
Plakias / Back again
« Last post by Daniel on September 10, 2017, 11:34:42 AM »
Back for our regular Plakias fix.
Staying with George again at Creta Mare.
First day here but place seems little changed from previous years.
Very hot at32 deg and little to no wind.
Ate at Geo Ma last night and it was  first class, as usual.
Will eat with Sonya tonight.
THe town is very busy with a good mix of nationalities.
This we find a good thing.
Now for the beach.
And will assess the sunned hogging issue.
Will give a full report when we get back to UK.

Started in the early nineties first visit was to Elounda very nice but will have changed I am sure. following year Peleochora . We liked the island so much we looked in brochure and said Plakias sounds just up our street. Stayed all over plakias first was Appolo the rep was called Jassinta it is a bit different now. We like to stay at Doras now quirky but so peaceful and she carnt do enough for us especially the raki topped up every day.
We have made so many friends there not a bad one have we found. My greatest friend being Niko Brokialakis you will all know him from the fish and chip shop. I go up to his house when we are over there. I miss all the nights in his restaurant ,also the character's who used to go in there .
My friends back here say why do you keep going back to Plakias , difficult to explain until you have been around Greece and hit upon Plakias.
I have met a few Cretan people on my journeys around Greece and the really are a cut above the rest , I don't mean that in a bad way but they are so proud of where they are from.
Was in Plakias in April absolutely fabulous first time that time of year cannot recommend it enough back in October it will be so different .

By chance really.....back in 1987 by then partner wanted to find somewhere with a nudist beach so he booked with Sun Med. I loved it at first sight....although I've never been able to locate the rooms we stayed in (somewhere at the back of Costa's I think). The rest is history.....we booked to introduce my (now) husband to foreign travel....have spent our 40th and 50th birthdays there and on Tuesday will be celebrating a 30 year association. Have been elsewhere but it keeps drawing me back.......enough said !

According to a post on Capt. Barefoots site ( Nudism is now prohibited on Souda Beach, it was OK in July.
Can anyone confirm? we're back in 10 days and wont be making the walk that way if so.

Noopsy, thanks for the newer list, it will come in handy this October for our only visit this year, but at least it's 10 days, more time to visit more tavernas! Can I ask if the prices have been updated from the earlier editions of your list? Especially bearing in mind the exchange rate, but we will not be restricting ourselves for the sake of a few euros, life is too short.
Efharisto poli.
