  • These caves are nice to see them once if you are interested in history. The artificial caves in the cliff of the Matala bay were created in the Neolithic Age and later on occupied by hippies.  more »
  • Cheap entrance fee, hot, dangerous a bit boring after you see a few caves that are quite similar after a while. The effort it takes to navigate around is not worth the effort. Pretty views of the beach.
  • The caves are worthwhile a trip. especially if you combine it with a few hours at the matala beach. The entrance fee is only two euros which is very reasonable and you can go all the way up the cliff.
