All reviews nice beach public toilets an umbrella clear water clean water big waves south coast high season sunbeds and umbrellas day trip small pebbles bars and restaurants small village hippie town interesting caves red beach cliffs
Coarse sandy beach, lots of pretty tiny pebbles & pumice but sadly a lot of plastic too. Great views out to an island & mountains. If you go swimming, beware of the undertow - we saw a man lose his footing (and his swimming trunks)...More
We really liked our one day trip to Matala beach (not the shortest one from Hersonisoss, but definitely worth). We parked just outside town, parking was free. A bit closer there is another parking but you will have to pay. Walk through this small town...More
This is a really lovely beach with a small town and resort. The cliffs form a horseshoe bay with sheltered but deep clear water. The beach is fine pebbles and the cliffs on one side contain Roman burial tombs carved into the rocks. The beach...More
There is plenty of space to spread out away from the plentiful sun beds if you want to.The best snorkelling is at the cave end where the sea life is varied and interesting. You can also easily find a sandy route in and out here....More
Beautiful beach in a small village. Very clean with a toilet and shower facilities nearby, however be sure to carry your own toilet paper. Umbreplas and sun beds available to rent. Carrefour and parking onsite and many local shops in sorrounding area. Lots of children...More
Slightly coarse sand, and some pebbles at the waters edge. Quite a number of sunbeds, but does get busy, and you may find one difficult to get after mid day. Water was a bit rough getting in while we were there, but as we only...More
It's a nice place. Matala beach gives great views out into the bay with a lovely cave in the cliffs to the right of the beach and a row of cool bars to the left. The lanes that approach to the beach are lined with...More

The ancient caves are right next to the beach. They charge admission to them, but you can climb the rocks and walk through the caves. We did not go to the more recently discovered (1980s) ruins, which are a little southeast of the beach. Since the beach faces east, I would assume that these ruins are not right on the water. You can google all of this and look at a map. The beach is just gorgeous, with plenty of chaises and umbrellas for rent (cheap!). There are also lots of cafes facing the water where you can stop for lunch, a snack or a bottle of wine. Have fun!
