We used Moto Plakias for the first time this year following Frank's recommendation earlier on - prices are excellent and vehicle was in good condition.  Transfer from airport was good once we found our driver and the actual office in Plakias was really helpful - very nice guys to deal with and Haras responds very quickly to emails.   Returning car to the airport car park was a tad challenging as difficult to make out section/rows/nos on the ground but overall, as long as you are clear where you have left the vehicle for them to find it (fingers crossed they found our's !!) its relatively simple.  And, you get a lovely freebie of Plakias oil as well from them !   They also support animals over the winter and have got a donation box in their Plakias office.

Did spot something buzzing around far end yesterday...possibly jet ski....with an entire sea ahead of them all the way to Libya I do wonder why there is the need to come so close to the beach especially with swimmers in the water...

Excellent - thank you so much for the info.   Would save driving and allow for a small sherry !   We usually spend a couple of days there but I think this would be a nice way to do the trip.  Replies much appreciated - ta !

Plakias / Question re Plakias - Agia Galini ferry
« on: July 23, 2019, 09:04:31 AM »
Noticed this (see extract below) on the Sfakia forum about a new ferry route calling into Plakias and wondered if anyone had seen or got any news about it?

"It will make the connection Agia Galini - Plakias - Gavdos. ANENDYK also has a new ticket booth at the Agia Galini harbour. From the 18th of June it will start:

From 1st of June it already is serving the Plakias - Gavdos route"

Spotted that this morning as could see the waves dancing across the bay and then tops of trees waving - after a good sand-blasting you will look younger at the end of it all and for free !
