The hike from Matala is sweaty but not too bad, it took us 15 minutes to get up and 15 minutes down. There were signs to guide you. I wore well fitting flats which were fine and my partner wore running shoes. Don't try and climb in flip flops. I was surprised the sand wasn't redder. It was a nice beach but the day we went the waves were really strong so you can really get knocked around. 2 days at the Matala beach also had very strong waves to the point of not really being able to go in the water so it may have just been the weather. It was much less crowded than the Matala beach and the further you moved down the more people were naked/topless. There is one shack that sells VERY, (8euro for a mixed drink) overpriced drinks. The man actually refused to serve us because we only wanted a water! I would recommend going to the Carrefour before for snacks, drinks as you don't want to make the walk back to town because you forgot something.
