Beach of Matala in Crete

Here you can explore the prehistoric caves in the cliffs of the beach. They were once the homes of the early Christians on the island.
Nevertheless, for most people, “Matala caves” mean: “Hippies, the children of the flowers”. During the ’60s and 70’s the caves hosted one of the largest international Hippie communities worldwide. The Matala beach tour is a journey back to time. The Matala village is a living proof of that.

You will have plenty of time (4 hours) to swim in the clear waters and sunbathe. Or taste local dishes in one of the small water front taverns in the area.

Also, explore the intriguing caves, or enjoy the sun-kissed shores. Matala Beach enchants visitors with its fusion of history, natural splendour, and coastal vibe.
