Matala is a small town on the south side of Crete. It has got a nice beach, with a camping site next to it. On the beach there're stone age caves, once were tombs and sacred places for rituals, used by Hippies in the 60's. You can sleep there, if you take the caves at the Edge of the rock over the sea. One of the Hippies still lives on the other side of the town, operating a nudists beach, nice, hah? I haven't been there, but the locals said there are many people there.

Chalkida History

When the Romans took over Chalkida, the city had once again gained some mercantile affluence.
