Visited the new beach bar towards the far end and seems to be up and running ok
Owned and run by Plakias Suites concern and does drinks, snacks, salads etc.
The sun beds run by this  concern have had an "upgrade"
As well as the two beds and a brolly you can now have a covered, fringed super doopeta set up.
At only 20 euros it seems quite reasonable ???

Of more interest is the major building work now well underway from Paligrenos down to Ammos building.
We were amazed at the build rate on this and the extent of that build.
It goes as far back as possible til it reached the escarpment edge and is 3 or 4 times bigger than the previously built blocks.
There is also some building work going on behind Paligrenos but did not get a good look at this.
Will update when we get back in 10 days time on how this September break has gone.

We came back six weeks ago & were amazed at the speed of the building since we left in May. We believe that the ones nearest the road are going to be shops but not exactly sure.
Building at the back of Paligremnos is additional accommodation being built by a family member.

Overall things are day to day generally the same but with the mass of buildings it's not going to stay that way for long.
We have two more weeks so may update if there is anything to report.

No further reports on any building work.
Last day of this holiday.
It is blowing half a gale in Plakias.
All unbrellas are down and beaches deserted.
Dust storms blowing down the beaches.
Forecast of rain later so looks like a day sat on the balcony gazing out at Gavdos.

Will report on this holiday over the weekend, once we are back home.

Now looks like a full gale.
Sun beds blowing down the beach on the beach opposite Creta Mare.
Never seen the sea a rough as this in all the times we have been here.
