Plakias / Re: Barny and Ruth in town for two weeks.

Barny, did you made your decision? As each year we enjoyed our stay in Castello.
We made a lot of pictures. Do you need further information?

Where to eat...or not! / Re: Harakas !

Sorry, I cannot agree with you. The portions are the same.
During our stay we spent a lot of evenings in the Harakas. It is right, Sonja and Lanbros had to reconstruct
the restaurant but the service is the same. The owner rented the other side to Anso Travel.

Hello daza,

my husband and I, we will be in Plakias from the 20th of May until the 3rd of June. Normally, we prefer the beginning of May but this year we decided to go a bit later. Last year it was very cold and we had a lot of rain and now we hope it will be better.
Our flights, the accomodation and the taxi transfer are arranged and we are looking forward to our next stay in Plakias.

Greetings from Germany,
Kerstin and Peter

I believe his name was Andrea and he lives in Damnoni.
He is Zach's employee and we had a lot of fun from the airport to Plakias.

Is the Gavdos ferry up and running,or not? Anyone know?????    Alex

I understand from the Sfakia forum that the larger Gavdos ferry supposed to be running from the new Plakias harbour never got started due to non compliance with regulations. No idea about the local smaller trips from Plakias

I found this on the web site of Gavdos-Star:

We would like to inform our dear passengers that PS Gavdos Star is ending,with immidiate effect,
it's ferry service from Plakias to Gavdos.
We are sorry for any incovenince caused and we thank you for your understanding."

Plakias / Holiday Report May 2011

Congratulations and many thanks to whomsoever has seen the necessity of restoring the far end beach parasols to their original decent distance apart today.

Whether it was tourist protests or just plain commonsence doesn't matter. It had to be done.

Those of you who wrote on the forum about there being more to Plakias than sun beds are quite right. But to me and many many more old people they are an essential requirement to enjoying Plakias when mobility is restricted.


Hello John and Tom,
enjoy the last days of your holiday. We think on you both.

Plakias / Holiday Report May 2011
« on: June 03, 2011, 04:53:32 PM »
The beach was cleaned with a tractor during the first days in May. We have seen it but it was not very successful.
I believe they moved the rubbish for one to the next point.
Really, we missed the sunbeds because there are so many stones in the sand and therefore it was not comfortable.
As always Emma works in the Livicon and at this time Freddie was waiting for the papers as to work.
We do not know what happened in the meantime.

We are hoping to go in late June, is it possible toget there and back in a day or is an over night stay advisable?

During our stay in Plakias we have seen the ferry. You leave Plakias port in the morning and you will be back
early in the evening.

Have a look there:

That sounds interesting!  will be in Plakias next Tuesday for 2 weeks, will suss it out
Are you on an Olympic holiday and flying with Strategic airlines? If so you will probably be one of the first on the forum to be able to report on this company that Olympic are using for the first time.

Have a good time. Plakias should be quiet this early in the season.


Yes Mike will be on the Strategic flight 9am from Manchester! It's just a week earlier than I went last year (4 May) I know it will be quiet, that's how I like it.  Kerstin will be there a few days later as well.
I will report back (away for 2 weeks) on the flight and any other gossip!  Staying at Dora this time and hoping Kostas bar and pool will be open at least the 2nd week.

Can't wait now!!!

Yes, we will arrive on the 2nd of May in the evening. As always we have booked Castello and Taxi4You.

Jann? Safe journey! See you soon.

How long will it take, steady drive from Plakias to Heraklion airport?

Steady drive - 2 hours
Thanks, not as long as we thought!

According to our experience with TAXI4YOU: 90 minutes
We can recommend this service. Zak is very reliable and a very good taxi driver.
