I visited this beautiful isle last summer and my family and I had a wonderful time. It truly is a lovely place, well worth a trip. The locals were kind and English was spoken all over the isle. Food was good and very fresh. All in all a remarkable holiday.
I've had cause to think about Lindos again since my friend, Jenni May, known and loved by many of the older Lindians, died last year.
In 1974 I went there to cook for Small World, returning in 1975 and 1976. When I revisited in 1981 it was already changing rapidly.
Now I read people's comments of the Lindos that the place has become, I am filled with nostalgia for how it used to be. I am glad it is still enthralling people: In 1974 it was truly 'unspoilt' and the only way to get to Pefkos was by donkey.
Fond memories, but I can't go back - it has changed too much and is too commercial now.
We are coming back to Haraki this year and counting down the days. Cannot wait to lay on the beach, swim in the sea and have cold drinks and good food at Bottoms Up. First time my hubby has returned somewhere but it was his first choice for a holiday, looking forward to August.
Returning again to Haraki and look forward to the sun, sea and lazing on the beach and drinks and food at Bottoms Up, cannot wait till August and counting the days!
we went there a couple of years ago it was wonderful
Well after about a 4 year break decided it's time to go back to Pefki, booked for 15th Sept 2010.can't wait to see how it's changed, went 5 yeras on the trot at least twice a year. This is one of the most friendly places we have ever being to, I'm hoping it' still the same, the people were great, food good and the weather always seemed to be hot, staying at Apostolis Studios again and can't wait to see how everyone has grown, Alexandra's great place for an afternoon drink and snack if your hungry, then back up to Anixis to watch the sun go down while having another drink, lets hope it's still as good as I remember it.
Yes, the nudist beach is still there, and its still lovely, we go every year in September, we went in July a couple of years ago, and it was hot, and I mean hot, get yourself a umberlla.
Its one of the best beaches I,ve seen. Very quiet and friendly
I was a licensed guide from 1963 until 2000 and my favourite site was Kamiros which was never promoted for excursions only when included in the tour of the Butterfly Valley.
Have learned a lot in private from archeaologists but just wish to mention that only when Schliemann discovered Mycenea were they able to date the vases found in the necropolis of Kamiros found + or - 20 years earlier.
And in Kamiros there are no souvenir shops and cafeterias.
Going to pefkos tomorrow, this will be my 13th time - almost feel like ive grown up there! There are loads of amazing places to eat and drink but my top 5 would be; armetis, nostalgia, enigma, terpsis, smiles. Wild west bar is a must, eclipse and pefkos by night are also good for some music and drinks at night. Locals are so friendly, never been anywhere else and felt so welcome. Kids are well looked after, there is very little crime. Also, take a visit to the glistra beach in lardos - beautiful!
We stayed at the ampelia beach, the viilage of gennadi was close by, we liked it a real greek village friendly locals, will go back again next year hopefully!
