Plakias / Sea turtles
« on: September 29, 2014, 07:30:38 AM »
We have been coming to Plakias twice a year now, for the last 18 years. Two days ago we witnessed something that we have never see before. At 8.00 am on the sea shore at the far end we saw hatching sea turtles from the sand and then making their way to the sea. There were about 80 in total and the whole spectacle lasted for about an hour. A truly marvellous sight and something we will never forget.

For those of you who cannot get enough of Plakias, you will be delighted to know that two webcams are up and running as from today. One pointing at the far-end and the other at the harbour.

Here are the links

I am hoping that someone will be able to help me.  For the last week or so everytime I connect to the Plakias forum my Norton Antivirus  tells me that it has detected a virus on my computer   . It is a trojan horse and the object name is  C:\Document...\adv497[1].htm.  My Norton always detects it and resolves it.
This ONLY happens when I connect to the Plakias forum and no other.

Can anyone advise as to how to get rid of this completly ?

Many thanks


PlakChat / Taxi Transfers

I may be clutching at straws here but can anyone tell me the telephone number of a taxi driver from Plakias named Vasilios. I may add that this information is not for me as our transfers have already been arranged ( only three days to go now.....Yabba dabba doooooooo ) but for friends who arrive a week later and have used Vasilios many times in the past. I am told that when off duty he can be found in the company of Dennis in the Livicon.

Thank you

PlakChat / Sunloungers and Parasols
« on: September 18, 2005, 12:50:35 PM »
I am contemplating visiting Plakias from the 4th October for 14 days.  It will be the first time to Plakias for 3 years having been many times before  ( always the last 2 weeks in May and the last 2 weeks in September.

I have never been to Plakias in October before and my question is,  does anyone know if the sunloungers and parasols at the " farend " will be operating throughout October ?

It will also be the first time to Plakias independently. Can anyone give any guidance/ recommendations re Travel Insurance?
