Matala has some great ancient caves, originally dug out during the stone age and used for worship. In the sixties hippies used them as housing and today they are yet again another tourist attraction.

They are now protected by the Archeology Service, the beach next to them are also amazing and the sea is fabulously blue. There is also a nudist beach for those who are interested, I haven't been there but the locals said it is clean and nice.
