We have always had a car and when it has been windy there has been virtually no wind not very distant from Plakias. Rodakina beach being a good example.

Same here. This was the first year we'd had a car for the whole time but ot proved invaluable - even when it was very windy in Plakias, you didn't have to travel far for it to improve.

I had a week in July and two weeks in August and it was quite bad all the time, even the locals were commenting on this. I stayed in Aphrodite pension and had to bring the table and chairs in all the second week as they were lifting off the floor!
But this is Plakias and I will still be back next year as will all the regulars?

Paul - you should know better than to be wondering whether it will be windy - it's like financial investments and just about anything else it would be nice to predict - you can't! Even if we knew it would be especially windy, I can't think of any changes we'd make to our packing. The one thing that can make a difference (but I know you don't like driving on holiday) is having a car - the wind very often is quite localised.

This is the veiw from the pension Aphrodite. Considering that Porto Plakias is next door, it's not too bad a veiw? shame you can't see the wind!
