first at all wellcome here on board
You've found a very nice stay for your holiday in Matala.
The bus to Iraklion goes 4 times a day and needs 1 1/2 hours. Here is the link to the ktel-krete, the busservice:
Matala has very nice beache - its really to far away to go by bus to elafonissi and chrissi. So - take a walk to the red beach or to komos beach. Go to Pitsidia, Kamilari and Kalamaki. In Pitsidia you'll feel real Crete life.
By boat you can go to the holy gorge - agio farango. Also the monastiry of Odigitria is nearby. Try to visit the marked of Mires every Saturday...
As Pam did try to hire a car or a bike and find place, you'll not reach with a bus...
A week in Matala is very short. There is so much more to see as Pam and I told you... But - I think you'll enjoy also your 7 days...
