Peace and love in Matala

In the 1960´s the hippies were coming in this small fishing village and they were living in Matala´s Beach caves.The town is today a tourist attraction but you can still see everywhere this Peace and Love- atmosphere. Off season it was calm, but im sure in summer its still a lively little place for old and young hippies amongst the families and couples who comes for a week or two holiday in Crete.

Great woodwork!

what a cutie ;)

Ha,i see we just missed eachother in Malata, we arrived ther on the 11th november on our wonderfull Kreta tour i love your post further on about recycling in Crete, it would be great if the island was free of all the stray garbage.For me it was the only minus of our trip.All the best for you xxx Joyce{holland}
