Matala hippies to return to Crete

An attempt to “reconnect” everywhere the former hippies who spent some time in Matala, scheduled for next June, at the initiative of two Germans!

According to the newspaper “Southern View” initiators of this idea are the author Arn Strohmeyer and publisher Thomas Balistier, who have great love for the island and have a dedicated series of books on the island. Indeed, the latest version titled “The Myth of Matala” is precisely that area was mainly in the 70s and the ideal of “freedom” for people, especially young people-from all over the world.

The two Germans expressed the hope that it will respond by many “veterans” hippies who will respond to the invitation and will travel for a weekend in June in southern Crete.

Those interested to participate in this “reunion” should communicate through the website

  1. my name Is Alan Collins from Scotland i stayed in Matala in 1966 as I remember our cave was called the Hilton. I remember many people from my stay and all those who shared a beer together . i tell my grandchildren of the trek over the mountains on a mule and the great times we had at the little bar near the beach .to anyone who shared these times I wish them love .


  2. And the Hippie “reunion” turned out to be a real reunion and happy days, despite what everybody was predicting. 43,000 people visited and there were three days of fun, music and happy people. 🙂

  3. Good day! I just want to give you a huge thumbs up for your excellent info you have right here on this post. I will be coming back to your site for more soon.
