Mati is a popular tourist destination with several hotels, fish restaurants, tavernas, cafés, bars, night clubs, open air cinemas, sandy beaches and yacht marinas. The harbour in nearby Rafina serves as an access point to the Aegean Sea and is frequently used by tourists to reach many of Greece's numerous islands. The Penteli mountains, which are covered with forests, lie to the west and northwest. Beaches cover the eastern part and restaurants, hotels, and tavernas line the shore.
Mati was severely hit by a wildfire on 23 July 2018, which left 94 people dead and over 172 injured. Thousands of vehicles and houses were destroyed, leaving Mati and nearby villages almost burned to the ground.
