Matala beach, Matala

Must see · Beach · Nature / Park
Combine your beach visit with some cave exploration at Matala beach, where the landscape features a rocky plateau that appears to be sliding into the sea. Climb up to access some of the caves, cut into the side of the sliding rock by the water over the years. There is one particularly large cave over the sea, and swimmers often paddle to its mouth to inspect the inside. Cafes, restaurants, and shops line the beach and offer facilities along the shore.

  • The only thing is that the place is amazing. If u want to explore the cave don't go with flip flops.
  • Beautiful view of caves and that’s it. The beach it’s too rocky, in the water there are also stones. We do not recommend for families with kids.
