Re: Illingas Beach

It seems there might be more umbrellas and sunbeds on that beach in future. There is more material waiting in the parking space.

Re: Planning to Come to Crete what should I do?

I am in the same situation. I am going to need a PCR test for my return. Tuesday in Sfakia is not suitable as my flight is on Saturday. As Erno says there might be changes or more facilities after May 15th.

Bell tower of Dodeka Apostoloi

At every arrival in Sfakia I was anxious to see if the damaged bell tower of Dodeka Apostoli was still there. No anxiousness anymore! For a few days now, there are a scaffolding and workers around. If ever restoration will be finished soon, I shall post an other photo. 20201017_155500.jpg The big Ga...

Back in Sfakia

There is a new construction site in the village. Last year we could not imagine something would fit in there. The rooms/apartments will be finished next year. The rear entrance happens to be in the lower part of the cemetery. A drivable gravel road leads into it from the courtyard of the bakery (pla...
