Where to stay in Matala

Though Matala's hippie history is mostly a memory, you'll find a few budget hotels and a campground for backpackers remains. If you're not among this group, Matala also features a number of more luxurious options offering a classic Greek island experience. For an optimal stay here, choose a beachfront resort or hotel. If you prefer to stay in town, there are a number of options along and off of Matala Road. For the best prices, and fewer crowds, consider coming during the off-season.
