#16663 Daskalogiannis Ferry

Posted by bobo on 16 September 2010 - 07:44 PM in Explore Crete

Hi Aurelia,

If you have no positive replies here you might think of posing this query to Erno on the forum in the site below. He works in Chora Skafion and is usually very informative and up to date on current events in the area.



#16627 Phaestos

Posted by bobo on 27 August 2010 - 07:33 PM in Explore Crete

Hi Aurelia,

There would be absolutely no camping on site and that I seen in the past there no rooms are available either on site or even nearby for that matter, the entire site is enclosed and protected and while I am not sure of the law regarding camping on Crete most of the surrounding land is private and given to agriculture so there would be no facilities.

Have a look at the last day on this page, images 3 through to 5 were taken from the hill overlooking Phaestos and should give you an idea of surrounding countryside.



#16625 Container Harbour Back On The Agenda

I think we all knew that this would raise it's ugly head again however this is a little sooner than I, and I suppose a lot of other people, thought it would happen.
Having read the article it is hard to see how the Greek government can afford to refuse the financial incentives being offered by the Chinese.


Even more so when you read the article from the previous day.


#16561 Naturism Near Makrigialos

Posted by bobo on 23 July 2010 - 11:21 AM in Explore Crete

Hi Max,

As I said the officially organised tours are banned however a resident there did tell me that a friend of his organised a trip recently where they 'accidentally' bumped into the island, and as they had already caught a few fish and had refreshments aboard they decided to have a barbecue while there.

So when you get to the village it would be no harm to ask around; he did say that if there were enough bodies to be got to make it feasible another 'island bumping trip' may be in the offing.

Hi Spinalongamax,

I notice that you mentioned Koufonisi island as a possible day trip; I had hoped to do this in October but have found out recently that the powers that be have :o banned excursions to the island for the moment, obviously while decide how best to protect the the Roman amphitheater and ruins. While it does not appear to be a priority but thought you should know.
