About the neighbourhood
There are many cafes, restaurants, bars and late-night live music events around Matala beach. It is most suitable for people who want to spend their vacations exploring the scenery and the beautiful beaches, listening to music and enjoying their drinks partying by the sea until late.In conclusion,a fantastic destination for those that enjoy relaxation during the day and the bar style holiday that includes nightlife .Not ideal for those with something quiter in mind for their nights :)
