Plakias / Re: June holiday report

I noticed this at the far end. Boulders all along the entry to the sea apart from one man-made channel, "ooh ah ouch" as you enter and the sea fairly chilly for mid June too. Two years ago the sky was full blue every day but this year the odd partly cloudy muggy day and lots of little black stinging/biting flies (like corn flies). I was constantly attacked by the blighters at Souda but was informed they were everywhere (a first for me).

Yes, this is near the existing beach bar opposite Paligremnos. It is probably built now but looks like a similar beach bar.

Report on my return:

Taverna Scirocco (It always looked full and busy before).
I was actually mixed up with Tasomanolis, which looks nice but again very busy on an evening so I avoided it. Scirocco is next door but set back a bit.

Taverna Kastro (I have a car to get there)
I had a drive up there but it looked a bit sad with just one family dining there (and they looked local or Greek).

Taverna Panorama (Myrthios by car)
As advised, I visited Vrisi instead. Wonderful place and great staff. Frank and Julie, I mentioned you to Nickos and it brought a great smile to his face and I also received top service. The young girl was amazing and very attentive. very recommended, thanks.

Antoni's Place (is this place more for lunch at the beach?)
Shame, I visited in the day when slightly off my food so went for an easy omelette. The only thing was that there was enough for two and lots of butter, ham and fatty cheese so I didn't think I did myself any favours (when will I learn to keep it even more simple with a salad). I would return though but maybe on an early evening for something simple and fresh.

Another recommendation is a trip up to Sellia. I went with a friend I met on the beach. She suggested Elia but when we went in there it was so warm at the rear of the non reserved tables, without a breeze. We then walked round to Merastri Taverna and took a table near the roadside with the glass balustrades which had a view over everyone's heads down to Plakias. We received top class service from the young lads who were part of the family run taverna. We tried the specials, Artichokes in lemon sauce and green beans in a tomato sauce, followed by wild rabbit with big Greek chips (fiddly, but yummo as they say).

Thanks all, Plakias is great isn't it? (Three visits now in four years and no doubt more to come).

Antoni's place is definitely worth a visit.  Good food, inexpensive, good service.  Has a nice feeling to it.
Up in Myrthios, our preference goes to Plateia.  Difficult to get a table at night.

The sand at the town end has all come from the far end, very difficult to get in the water now, all large stones and an uneven sandstone? Ledge to negotiate now

Went there now 3 times and I must say the food is very good. I was never that enamoured with the Harakas (sorry, Harakas fans). The first time we went it was quite empty, I  assume newbies on the block syndrome, but last night there were quite a few people in there and the food was excellent. Give it a try when you get here.

A lot of work going on and more to come.
We did not find that there was any noise problems from this work.
I think that is far enough along from and back from the Hotel and the sun beds to be quite acceptable.
And no great problem with consruction vehicles either, so don't worry and just enjoy your time at

I did not mention another change which has happened in town.
The beach area along the town frontage is now all sand and being well used for sunbathing and swimming.
A major plus for the resort.

Hi Daniel

Pleased you had a good holiday. I was just wondering if with the construction work going on it made the bit of beach near by and the Paligremnos Noisy as we have most of our lunches there?
