Tip of the day
Crete, Greece. Matala. A place saturated in history. The town of Matala in ancient times was the second most important of the Minoans. It is just over one and a half hour’s drive from Heraklion and only 10 km from the famous and atmospheric Minoan site of Phaistos.
Many hundreds of years after the destruction of Phaistos, Matala became the Roman harbour for the town of Gortys. Today, a beautiful 300 metre half crescent shaped sandy beach is protected on both sides with great cliffs forming a pretty little bay. In the 60’s and the 70’s Matala became renowned as hippies came from around the world to live in the caves carved out of the cliff sides of the bay. These famous Stone age caves, are now undergoing archaeological research and so spending a night in cases is not an option!
