We have written more than once on our website that Crete is a very windy place. All those who are regulars on the island can certainly confirm these words. However, there are places in Crete that the wind likes in a special way. One of them is certainly the town of Plakias , which, apart from its perfect beach, is famous for its extremely strong winds. Those blowing from the north from the Kotsifou and Kourtaliotiko ravines are particularly annoying and strong.
To confirm this thesis, we refer to today's data that have been collected by the Athens National Observatory - meteo.gr. According to the results of observations carried out by this institution in Plakias, gusts of wind were recorded today, the speed of which reached even 106 km / h.
We guess that today could be a really difficult day for all those who wanted to take advantage of the charms of the local beach. With such a strong wind, the sand is falling mercilessly, which is not very comfortable. Unfortunately, such strong gusts of wind will also persist tomorrow. So if you are currently staying in Plakias, we recommend organizing a trip or moving to a rocky beach.
