Just returned from a great 10 days in Crete.
Plakias was very busy until the 19th, farend very crowded, still 6 for 2 sunbeds and umbrella. No sign off the donutman however.
Great temps and also the water was still very nice for snorkeling.
Ammoudaki was very busy, 7 for 2 chairs and umbrella. Beach bar still open.
Most of the restaurants and chops are closing next weekend for the winter.
Now 5 months to wait for the return at easter holiday 2019.

Just got back from 2 and a half weeks in Crete, did a few trips to Plakias, Ammoudaki and Souda. Far end beach was quite full, but it wasn't as crowded as other years. Donut man mad his daily passes, Ammoudaki was very crowded, but due to the Greeks on holiday in August, mor then half of the people wear clothing. Saudo beach was even fully dressed, far end no problems.
Restaurants never full so i don't think that there was as much people as other years.
Now back to counting down, returning in octobre.

For the alternative beaches, they are not far away, If you like walking it can be done by foot, or rent a car for a few days, make a daytrip to Agia Galini or to Rethymnon if You like some more shopping. Anso travel in Plakias rents bike if You like that more thans a car.
Have fun there and enjoy your 18 days. We were in Plakias in april With Easter and had almost no wind on the beach.

Just got back from 2 weeks in Crete, We mage quite a few trips to Plakias because the weather was better in the south, especially the seawater temp.
Nice to see the difference with the first week of march when i was there.
Most restaurants are open, Tasomanolis not yet but working hard to get ready.
The restaurants between the parking and the harbourwal are all open.
The stores are open or working to open in the next days.
The beaches are cleaned from all the seaweed and the new pedestrian bridge looks nice. the roadworks are mostly finished.
Chairs and a few umbrella's are allready in place at the far end. spend a few days on the beach and every day there are more people at the beach.
Now back to work and 108 days to the return.

Just got back from 10 days Crete, 4 days of rain showers, then the sun got tru the clouds, few afternoons we drove out to Plakias, we were painting our villa in Loutra, coffee on the terras of Ostraco enjoying the sun.
Luckely the roadworks didn't cause to much noise in the afternoon, last weekend few people started to get beachtime, we even took a swim and had a few hours of beachtime at Ammoudaki.

Kalloni is right, the first beach is rather large, second is a lot smaller but has less wind and waves. ideal for snorkeling.

In august, souda and most of the beaches that are visited by the Greeks, are nudist unfriendly, if you take the road uphill in the middle of souda and take the right to stay at the side off the hill you reach two remote beaches. The second one is Varsi beach. It has a cave so you have shelter. Next to it there is a private beach where there is a sweetwater shower. We spend the day nude for 4 times in august. 2  Days we had company from a couple (also nude)wich was camping at the cave.

Try the people of domisi, we are thinking of buying a villa on the island to, but more in the region of Rethimno, due to the fact that in wintertime, or if we get older there is more in the surroundings. Domisi has an office in Plakias, we just found out when we passed it yesterday. It's next to the Anso travel agency on the first floor in the midlle.
