Matala beach in Crete

Monday, July 11, 2011

These are some shots I took from yesterday's excursion. We drove to the south to visit the Matala beach, famous for it's natural rock caves, once used by the hippies as a shelter during their flower revolution back in the 60ies. After swimming into the crystal waters and enjoying cool raki over at a friend's cafe we continued our trip to Komos beach, just a few kilometers away only to catch the sun set behind the mountain horizon over the sea. The scene was beyond description, I wish I were a better photographer to pass over just a tiny taste of it. Spending time by the sea can prove to be the best anti-depressant ever. Summer I love you!

    I love your blog and ... I love Crete! My husband and I spent fantastic days there, also in Matala and Komos beach! This summer we are coming back in August...
    Looking at these amazing pics made me think that I would jump in an aeroplane to reach your wonderful island.
    Hugs from Rome
