I've just come back from Messinia, Peloponnese where it was 42 degrees last week. sunny  Trying to get dry after having a shower was almost impossible.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

On the view from Syrtaki cameras it looks a bit quiet at Kefalos at the moment.

Got back last Tuesday - heat was unbearable back here when we landed - 4 hours after leaving Kefalos with it's lovely breeze. Yes, numbers are down this year. Manolis in B52 estimated they are down about 30% but I think it is more than that.  We were there when a travel company (Low Cost Hoidays?) went bust and a lot apartments in Kefalos were affected. We were told that Anthoula had only 5 rooms taken out of 48 and Archondia had 3 rooms taken out of 25 - many others were also down. Let's hope it picks up now that the school holidays have started as May & June were not very good either.

I think you are right Vanman. Every day there are many empty sunbeds opposite Syrtaki and hardly any pedestrian traffic along the footpath there. Also empty tables. It is very different from the scenes on the webcam last year. Did Manolis have any opinion as to why numbers are down so much?

Manolis didn't express an opinion but I think it is a combination of many reasons including bad publicity in newspapers here regarding the immigrant problem; a fear of economic instability in Greece and the rise in all inclusive holidays. We heard that when the Blue Lagoon opened they said they would employ about 80% Greeks but apparently there are only 5-6% there. The only benefit to Kefalos is some apartments being taken up by the foreign workers at the Blue lagoon. We saw no evidence of any migrants around Kos town - apparently they are in a camp at Pili. Sad

It was quiet at in May when we stayed at Kokalakis, and our friends were at Kamari Bay. Speaking to various hotel and bar owners, including Fortis at Bravo, they didn't seem to hopeful for this year. Concerns as you say over the economy, bad publicity over refugees, all inclusive, and possibly some Brits waiting to see what happened about the Brexit vote. I just wish people would get off their backsides and GO ON HOLIDAY! We heard the refugees are in a camp in Pyli 0- mostly bored and asking to go home again.

Just returned from Kefalos on Wednesday and it is still much quieter than usual. Olympic had reduced their capacity by 40%.Very many empty sunbeds along the beach.

It looks like they've cleaned the lenses on the Syrtaki webcam. It looks lovely today - and deserted!

1. A lovely day in Kefalos, wish I was there!
2. Apparently bookings to Greece up by some 40% this year, as people are staying away from Turkey and Middle East due to terrorism concerns.
3. I have put a link on "Lounge Bar, Chat About Anything" about the huge WW2 bomb found in Thessaloniki. It was found near where the family of Vasilli (Hotel Kokalakis) live! I have e-mailed them hoping it all works out OK.
