Gossip / Re: How did you first find Plakias?
« on: November 08, 2018, 08:10:59 AM »
A fascinating thread! We were having a hotel holiday at the north of the island. We hired a car for a few days and drove all over. On our way back from Frangokastello we called in at the beach at Plakias for a dip. Was delighted to find the naked end!  Visited a couple more times that holiday.
Then, several years later, I found Plakias in the Olympic brochure. It’s been a regular for us ever since.

Yes- those were a bit pesky this year.  Like having a team of next door neighbours mowing their lawns the whole day!

I totally agree and have complained in  previous years, too. As others have said, this seems to be mainly the Brits.

You might be right but not during the two weeks we were there ( and they do have a lot more front tables) :-)

Where to eat...or not! / A Whole Two Weeks without Harrakas

Much to our regret, we didn't get to eat in our favourite taverna, Harrakas, this year. We love the food - but enjoy watching the world go by. Every evening, as soon as they opened, all the front tables were reserved. Ah well. More trade for the others - especially now Kri Kri has expanded its frontage!

The roadworks seem to have finished, although there is still some finishing off to do.  Re bar Platia, it is no longer there, last year the shop was divided between the bar and a tourist type shop, this year the bar has gone and it is now ll is all shop.  Rain has gone and been replaced by sunshine all the way, lovely.

Ah. Sad. We quite liked it there...

How is the parking? I seem to recall that was becoming an issue two years ago -- are they still being strict?

Re, Bar Platia... Was this bar along the front  ? If so, I'm sure that this isn't there anymore, but I think has been split into a smaller bar café / and shop ?

When we were there in 2014, it was mostly a shop, with a tiny bar tucked in alongside - sounds like that is still going then..?

Plakias / What's Changed?

Hello all....
We had to cancel our Plakias trip last year (lost a small fortune!)... we are very much looking forward to visiting this July but --- what's changed? What should we brace ourselves for? Anything unpleasant? Is the Far End still the same? Is any of Bar Platia still existant as a bar..?
