Matala: One of the quirkiest beaches in Southern Crete, Matala is best known for the ‘Caves”, a mountain of gorgeous natural rocks that poke out of the sea and is full of caves-where people use to stay in.
What to do: This beach makes a great day out, especially in the south part. The beach has over a kilometre of white sand, dunes and a surrounding pine forest – so wherever you turn your eyes are in for a treat. The Caves are easy to walk in, people use to stay-instead of camping-as they are safer.
How to access Matala: You can hire a car and drive your self. Heraklion city is just 1hour and 5minutes far. The beautiful village/town of Moires is just 15minutes far. Kommos beach is very close to drive, 15minutes distance from Matala. Renting a car is the best choice.
