This coastal town lies 34km east of Heraklion, the capital city of Crete. It’s the liveliest part of the island, so if you want to party, you’ve found the right place. The nightlife is legendary, making this an 18-35s clubbers dream destination. The village of Malia is surrounded by olive groves and a mountainous landscape that sweeps down towards a sparkling sea.
On the other side of Malia, there’s a stunning beach, just far enough away from the clubbing crowd to be relaxing. The wide stretch of golden sand receives a steady pummelling from the Mediterranean Sea, making it popular with body surfers and eager swimmers. Sun-loungers and parasols are available to hire and the hills of the mountain of Selena provide a majestic backdrop for your sand-based siesta. Get your Greek salad fix at the gloriously authentic beach-side taverna and wash it down with a cold beer.
You can’t really go anywhere in Greece without being in the company of several historical monuments. The beach at Malia is no exception, and the remains of the Bronze Age, Palace of Malia provides evidence of the buildings that were revered 4000 years before someone came up with the idea of the discotheque. Indeed, this is one of the oldest inhabited places in Greece. The palace features a giant central courtyard and steps that lead up to a maze of tiny rooms.
