The 2 blocks are a bit back from Antonia Place so do not encroach on it.
How big?
I will have another look tomorrow afternoon when passing andreport back.

Major thunderstorm and heavy rain overnight but now fine by lunch time.

As promised, an update on the town.

Fair bit of work has been going on since our last visit September of last year.
The actual town and Main Street from Alianthos thru to Crete Mare is very much as it was, with just a few minor changes/improvements.

The main building work is on the periphery of the town.

Multicoloured Sea View Luxury Appartments are now open on the hillside behind the main supermarket.

Just behind that supermarket, and attached to it,are now Belvedere Spa and Appartments

On the main junction, by the Alianthos Hotel, is now a new block of appartments with a snack bar/caffe in front called Blu.

Now on to the road towards the "far end":
There is now a sign for a major new development next to Plakias Resorts.
Looks like it could be for a lot of apartments, according to Siffi.

Additional building next to Plakias Suits of just a small development.

2 largish blocks of appartments part built behind Antonines Place.

Various other bits and pieces of building going on but not major work.

Will update on the holiday later in the week.

Checked into the updated Crete Mare with George at 3.30 pm.
Only one sugestion about his Raki:
Don't get it on your clothes as I suspect that it is corrosive!!
But that did not stop us from enjoying his hospitality.

Updates and modifications to the place are excellent and improve an already beautiful hotel.

Been to see Siffi and Anna and had a beer with them .
Will be eating with them a couple of times during this holiday.

Table booked at Gio Ma for 8.15.

Flights with Ryanair first class and arrived at Chania 15 mins early ( but could do without the fanfair  on arrival.)
Picked a car up at the airport and leasurly drive down to Plakias.
Will update as the holiday goes on.o

Sounds good-we always choose September, as do many others, as not so hot and the wind tends to be more bearable. I checked on the weather link from this site previously and September has the lowest average wind. 12 days to go!

We arrived here on Saturday and two of our party were given temporary rooms for the night at Alianthos Beach because they are fully booked. We were given rooms with a sea view for the rest of our stay so we're not complaining. We were told that many of the hotels are also fully booked for September.
The weather is fantastic for me, not too hot and some cloud cover. Very little wind. Good for walking.

I normally go to Plakias every August and have done for the last 29 years but unfortunately I was unable to make it this August. I decided to have a week in September. I am amazed as to the amount of rooms that are fully booked.
Is it really that busy in September? is the beach full (far end) and all the tavernas ETC?
i am going to wait until next August now as it's guaranteed to be nice and quiet.
Have a good one everybody!

We went last year in early September as we always do and couldn't get our usual room at Calma apartments as they were full-the first time this has happened. Generally busy on the beaches when we were there but strangely rather quiet around the tavernas in the evening. We're off again on the 22nd of this month and will do an update then.

Well done Dionysos, both cameras up and running nicely. We will be back in October and looking like idiots when waving at the cameras for family back home!
Hope you got it done safely without incident.

The camera pointing to the south-east is working, the other is not.  Very cloudy today with big waves crashing on the beach.  The maximum temperature too is only a 'cool' 28 degrees C.  Some consolation...
