Red beach, Matala, Crete
by C & E
We visited Red Beach in September 2010. It is to the south of Matala. Park a few hundred metres south of the town. It is then a 25-30 minute hike up a rough track which involves a bit of a climb then steep descent to Red Beach.
It was busy the day we visited with mainly naturists on the beach. There was light refreshments available but we're not sure how regular this arrangement is so best take some supplies. Most memorable were the excellent breakers coming in from the sea.
