Matala beach


Caves carved in rock
The beach of Matala is one of the most famous in Crete because it was the hippies’ gathering spot during the 70’s. Another reason why Matala is pretty popular is the caves naturally formed into the rocks that surround it. It is located 67 km southwest of Heraklion with a view to the Libyan Sea and to Paximadia Islands. It is a long, sandy beach, with a few tamarisk trees for shade and deep waters. It is very organized with sunbeds, umbrellas, toilets and showers. The place has a lot of souvenir shops, cafeterias and there are rooms to let, taverns and beach bars.
