Beach of Matala

Beach of Matala

Matala is situated within an area of unique natural beauty. A good number of ancient shipwrecks, mainly of the Roman period have been detected in the seabed of the area. However the most famous feature of the area are the numerous small caves dug in the rock by the winds and waves, suitable to dwell people, which used to house the hippies during the 1960s'. The beach gets very crowded during peak season and there is a lot of partying going on.
