If you read a few more previous posts you will see there is alternative beaches to the main plakias beach within easy walking distance. Just work out the wind direction and head to either souda to the west or Amanda or damoni to the east. Or alternatively get tucked into the back of roc ka beach

Anyone seen the webcam this morning, fog so thick you can't see the water, same in Sfakia.

Never seen it like that before

That's good news, back again on Tuesday and if the towel wars are still on, or the wind kicks up, that's our first alternative destination

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?

According to a post on Capt. Barefoots site (http://www.voy.com/84161/5129.html) 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.

Looking at Olympics Website for next year it shows transfers for every other Island except all of Crete. So I have rung them this morning, and it seems that the transfers via coach are still happening next year, but you currently need to book over the phone rather than on-line to get confirmation.
So all sorted for next June.

As of 10 days ago, yes to both. 2 beds & brolly still 5 euro, I believe donuts still 2 euro but didn't buy one.

Every year I forget someones names, anyone help me with Dennis's wife @ The Livicon, and the usual waitress @ Joe's Bar?

We ought to set up a spreadsheet or something that we could all access, and update with all the usual suspects as we learn them

Not sure exactly what you are looking at but no major building work going on in the town, the road has been dug up for the new sewerage pipework from the new harbour towards Sellia, and at Sellia it has been closed off now for a couple of weeks at the narrow bit as you go into the village.
 A new Taverna has opened opposite the Cosy back yard,  used to be a supermarket, very good food and Manolis the owner is very friendly, nice decor, and a small local produce shop at the back, he is open now I think to get things running and be ready for the main season.
Some serious rain at times,  Preveli bridge road impassable to traffic as the river is running like a torrent and would wash a vehicle downstream if you tried to pass, some big waterfalls have appeared, pity I can not upload a video to this forum as quite impressive.
A nice time of year, quiet and people have the time to talk, the road to Rethymnon is closed today due to snow, its quite a bit colder that side.

Is it possible to post on Youtube and post a link here??

Should have added that we booked for June/July and also September 2017 last July, and our booking confirmations include transfers, so it should be interesting (right word?) what happens. I would have thought that they will have to honor bookings already made, there must be hundreds booked by now.

Has anyone else looked at Olympics web page since Christmas? The majority of holidays to Plakias and some other resorts (I haven't looked at everything obviously) are showing as Transfers not included. If you start the booking process it gives you the option to tag on taxi transfers toward the end along with your luggage extras.
The current cost now works out about 300 pound more for our next summer holiday than we booked it at.

There are going to be some out of work Coach drivers and very busy Taxi drivers by the looks of it. (I ought to get my gray Mercedes ordered today)

Is it just the angle, or is Gio-Ma and Christos on fire in this webcam shot?
