Plakias / Re: Any Plakias Updates?
« Last post by JackieatUrbanAgenda on May 10, 2018, 10:10:54 AM »
From the look of it (and the webcams at the Morpheas) someone has re-tarmac-ed the footpath along the beach is showing up as a rather hideous salmon there anyone out there who can confirm this ? I dont think it's just 'the light'. I much prefer the subtlety of Plakias...dont really want it to become the next multicoloured Disney style seafront but it may be too late !

Plakias / Re: Imbros gorge
« Last post by mickydripping on May 01, 2018, 09:15:02 AM »
I have walked the Imbros several times and only found the entrance gate staffed once. there are several entrances to the gorge in Imbros village...I would suggest that you check out the situation first, then make the trip. If you are burdened by your conscience, call and leave the fee by slipping it under the door as you pass the gate.

We plan on walking the Imbros gorge in June, but we would like to start early in the day. Does anyone know what time the ticket office at the entrance opens? We have searched many websites but canít find this information.

Does anyone know if Elspeth is the Olympic rep this year? I thought she was excellent last year.
Plakias / Babysitting / Childcare

Does anyone know of any Babysitting or Childcare services ideally in Plakias?

We've never stayed there ourselves but Plakias Bay Resort appears to offer this service (only for guests I presume) and we'd prefer not to have to be limited to this one establishment.

Hope someone can advise!

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.
Where to stay / Re: Preveli rooms/beach

If you are travelling by bus from Heraklion to Plakias you need to take one to Rethymnon, and from there another to Plakias.  Here is the link to timetables and other useful information:
