Sfakia report, Oct 8-9

It rained in the early hours of Tuesday night, and the following morning was cloudy, but it became sunny and hot by the afternoon, with a nice breeze. The sea was much calmer. Some tourists who had driven to Chania reported a heavy spell of rain in both Chania and Vrisses, but there was none in Sfak...

Sfakia report, Oct 6-7 - weather

Both yesterday morning and this morning were warm and calm, but on both days some clouds came over, there was some brief light rain, and the wind got up in the afternoon, making the sea rough, although it was possible to swim easily at Ilingas. The forecast for tomorrow is for some light rain again,...

Re: Sfakia report, Oct 4-5 – weather, sea conditions, Ilingas

Thank you, Sabine. Yes, the old footpath starts on the right after the wrecked pick-up; the first part is kaldirimi, then it meets a dirt shepherd's track and eventually turns north into the gorge. However, the end of the kaldirimi that used to descend gently to the gorge bottom was wrecked in a big...

Someone just told me that lots of people are stuck on Gavdos because of the rough sea - including a wedding party from Chania!

Sfakia report, Oct 4-5 – weather, sea conditions, Ilingas

Friday it was cloudy, warm and very humid all day. There were forecasts for thunderstorms, but Chora Sfakion only had a few short, light sprinkles of rain. Friends who came down from Anopoli for dinner said it was about 10˚C colder up there, with some rain. We heard from a tourist that on Thursday n...

Sfakia report: new things around the village

Sfakia from boat.jpg For the past week the weather has been very warm and sunny, good for swimming but a bit too hot for hiking comfortably along the coast. This morning was cloudy and humid, although by lunchtime the sky had cleared, and there is now a welcome breeze. We may get a little rain on S...

Re: Bus timetable update

The woman at the information booth told me that the 9am bus to Anopoli/Aradena is scheduled to run until Oct 10th, and after that it will depend on the weather. Of course, the bus probably won't go on any rainy days before that (if there are any - it is hot and dry at the moment).

Re: Bus timetable update

It is still going now, but sometimes it stops running in the middle of October, and the girl at the information booth usually doesn't know ahead of time when that will be. I'll see what I can find out.

Sfakia report, September 29th: concert at Ilingas beach

Sunday night there was a free concert at Ilingas given by George Maggelakis and his group on a colourfully lit stage right on the beach. Georgos played the louto, lyra and mandolin at various times, and the band also featured flute and bagpipes. Tourists and lots of locals enjoyed the warm evening u...

Re: Sfakia Report

p.s. looks like the harbour webcam lens needs a clean. For several days the image has been very "foggy". If you know the person responsible perhaps you could mention it to them. I asked, and they won't be able to clean the harbour camera until they close in November. It involves going up ...
