Hi Elizabeth. Well spotted. I've only visited once and that was a few years ago... I agree. I just love this expression of living in the moment. Could be a very primal place to live - in one of those caves on the bay, with plenty of fish to catch and wild herbs to pick. I wonder how it's doing now ... probably better than most Greek resorts as it has such an international following among independent travellers.
OK, totally just saw your sig and nerded out. I love Matala! So beautiful and relaxing. /Creepiness.
