Sports competition in Agios Nikolaos this weekend

This weekend, on September 24 and 25, Agios Nikolaos will host two international sporting events: Agios on SUP and Cliff Diving . All those who spend their late holidays in this part of the island will surely be pleased to see the spectacular jumps to Lake Voulismeni live. Both events are also a good promotion of this charming city and Crete itself.

Samaria still open

The last days of the calendar summer and the beginning of autumn in Crete are a good time for hiking. Lower temperature and less scorching sun are conducive to walks along the trails and ravines. The only sign of the end of summer is a clearly shorter day, which should be taken into account when planning field trips.

So if someone is in Crete right now and plans to cross the most popular gorge on the island, this is a good time. Samaria is still open for the entire length of the route. Both entrances are open, both in Xyloskalo and from Agia Roumeli.

Elafonissi from above

This is one of the most beautiful beaches of Crete famous for its pink sand, i.e. Elafonissi. This extraordinary place, however, has been struggling with overtourism for years because it is the destination of countless trips, both optional and private. It is difficult to find a vacant place here in high season. Thanks to the shots from the drone, you can see how practically the entire beach is covered with sun loungers. From a distance, it's a bit of a scary sight. As every year, the topic of regulating tourist traffic on the most popular beaches of western Crete returns in the local media. Unfortunately, no specific plans to deal with this worsening problem have yet been developed.

Long season in Greece and an interesting plan for winter

Even though the middle of September is behind us, the hotel occupancy in Crete is still over 90%. This September looks like August 2, according to Manolis Varkarakis, president of the Lassithi Hoteliers' Association. The occupancy rate is also high in the least popular Lassithi Prefecture, with towns such as Elounda, Sitia, Agios Nikolaos and Makry Gialos. Here, the situation is still dynamic, and hotel occupancy ranges from 60 to 80%.

Who is visiting Western Crete?

We are still at least a few weeks away from the end of this year's tourist season. However, the first rankings and summaries are already appearing, showing what this season was like. Interesting conclusions are presented in a report published after research conducted by the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Chani in cooperation with various educational institutions. These studies were carried out for the region of West Crete, and their aim was to determine the profile of the average tourist who came to this part of the island for holidays this year.

Windy days in Plakias

Plakias is one of the towns in the south of Crete that is willingly visited by tourists. This place is known for a very good sandy beach, as well as the very recognizable Gonates cliff. A large part of tourists who had the opportunity to visit Plakias in the past, would certainly mention the wind that can blow here with great force as another characteristic of this town. Today we would like to invite you to watch a short clip of such windy days in Plakias with our camera's eye.

Souda Beach in the south of Crete

Until the beginning of the nineties, this place was known only to a few tourists and local residents. During this period, there was a rather uncomfortable gravel road leading to the beach. This rather limited availability was soon used by nudists who found a perfect hiding place here. Currently, getting to Souda is not the slightest problem, as an asphalt road has been connected here for quite a long time. and a footpath between Plakias and Souda has recently been built for pedestrians, although today the place is definitely more popular with ordinary tourists, you will still find many naturists here.

Souda is at the end of the gorge with the Finikas River flowing at its bottom. This small stream, fed by mountain streams, is full of water all year round. Good water availability makes this valley green even at the peak of the holiday season. In several places along Finikas you can see the groves of Cretan palm trees Phoenix theophrastii, which you may know from places such as Vai and Preveli. Souda is one of the most important reserves where this very rare species occurs.
