May visitors
« on: August 06, 2016, 11:36:59 AM »
Thinking about next year before we've even been this year!!! Looking at early May to be there for Martin's birthday. When does the season start? Have been before in very first week of May, perhaps a bit early? Does it depend on Easter celebration? Any info much appreciated thanks, Gerx

We are usually out in May,(second & third weeks) quite a few places are open and others well into the process of getting ready to open.
Brouklis, Amourada, Gratsella, Marina, Kostas, Beach Point were all open this year when we arrived.  Vavillas, Thalassa, Horizon, Effies, Portofino, Mirage, See Breeze Amos were also open by the start/middle of our second week. with the tour operators flying out the first week of May.
Malibu was open and Coconut open during the evenings.

May is a fabulous time to arrive with spring flowers and cooler days and nights. The weather can be variable but usually any rain soon passes
Just relax and enjoy Lazzzyyyy Lunches and wonderful Dinners

We have been in early may before and the fireflies are truly amazing! Just wondered if greek easter had any affect on how early places were going to open, we would like to bring 2 newbies with us and want them to have the full arillas effect!!!

My son is going 19th may for a week staying at Mathraki. He has been to Arillas once about 6 years ago when we went as a family and now returning to show his girlfiend what a great place it is. I am so excited for them. He will also be there for his birthday on the 24th and where better to celebrate your birthday.

When are the fireflies around in May as I would only be able only go at the end of the month - beginning of June which is when the schools have a week off?

Usual the first 2 weeks in May, we have seen them later then that. They are small carnivorous, nocturnal which emit light during the courting season. The mails fly around after dusk, and although the females have wings they are flightless. they both emit this fantastic green light. They feed on snails and worms so therefore help the farmers as well as being an Amazing sight. x
