Kommos (or Komos) is located, just 2km north of Matala. It is actually the southernmost and the most isolated part of the huge beachfront of Mesara Bay.
The northern part of Kommos, Potamos or Potamoserma, is a favorite destination for lovers of naturism, since the times when hundreds of hippies flooded the area. There are only a few tamarisk trees around, not buildings, because Kommos is a protected archaeological area and building is forbidden.
Next to the archaeological site, on the south, there is an organized beach with umbrellas, sun beds, toilet, showers, a tavern and a lifeguard. Wherever you are, the view of the islands Paximadia are stunning and when the sun goes down near them, the atmosphere is magical.
