It's a small greek city, offering not much nightlife or something like that. It's more the nature, that makes the area attractive. Matala has got some nice beaches, some surrounded by stone age caves, or occupied by old aged hippies. If you are on a trip going through the town, it's worth a stop.

You can visit the caves, they were used as tombs and places for worship in the Ancient times, now they are under archeological protection now. Interestin that in the '60s hippies lived in them, there was a whole commune here. The beaches are rathr nice and not very crowded, so you may cool yourself here.
