North beach
« on: May 03, 2014, 12:20:52 PM »
Had a walk on the beach this morning after my swim. Had a little paddle and the sea is warmer than the pool...

The good news is that there looks to be a lot of sand on the north beach, as there is on the first part as you walk down there. However, there are the usual two places where there would be a lot of deep wading to do to get right along to the north end at the moment.
We have a bit more rain to come I suspect before the weather settles, but I am sure within a few weeks we should be able to get there as usual.

Thanks Sandy. Looking forward to a few mornings heading North in July. Haven't been that far for 2 years!

Hi Sandy
Thanks for the information on North Beach.  I really appreciate it.  About this time every year I start 'fretting' about the width of the beach, the depth of the deeper sections (as I am not very tall, this is also important to me!!!).  I might say that Robin will be equally happy to have a good 'Beach Report' if it stops me 'going on' about it every time I see the forum!!!
And although we are not arriving until 16 June, it's good to hear we're doing OK as far as the beach is concerned, fingers crossed.  So I can now turn my mind to everything else I regularly worry about when we're preparing to travel!!!

Thanks again Sandy
Regards Mavis and Robin xx

Spent yesterday on North Beach....the best it has been for several years in my view. Very wide and you can get right to the end. At the moment the sea is calm so access is easy....you can walk on sand round the first rock and just a few yeards of easy wading round the second.
Happy days!

Many thanks Sandy,
It sounds perfect, especially for me (with short legs!)  Everything's slotting into place and it's only 3 weeks on Monday and we'll be there
....Great!

This post has made many beach lovers very happy. The main beach is looking vastly improved also for this time of year. What a treat for all you newbies!

The main beach is huge at the moment....looking more so because there are not many people on it! Most of the big rocks that were put there last year have gone/disappeared/been moved.....

Thats interesting Sandy! I thought those rocks had been there to help the beach and presumed they had made the difference this year! Seems it was mother nature!

Hi everyone,

Have just returned following 10 brilliant days on the North Beach. Pleased to report that the beach was getting wider every day that we were there and by all reports it is now as good as at any time in the last few years. Sea still a bit cool for my liking though.

Also a quick thank you to Karen & Dave for their excellent company and and the introduction into the wonderful world of building stone towers. Hope to see you both next year.

Regards
Dave & Sandra

hi Bob,

This is their second week, think they are due to go home on Friday.

And yes they are staying at the Kaloudis.

On their recommendation we went for lunch at Effies (?), which we thoroughly enjoyed and promptly went again the following couple of lunchtimes. They do a very nice spinach pie.

Regards
Dave
