The entire coastline is covered in awesome Malia hotels. Further inland, you can wake up with the birds near Ano Limnion, a gorgeous nature preserve. And if volcanic craters are your idea of a party, book Santorini accommodation and catch a ferry out to more seaside sights.
Check out the digs at the Minoan ruins right on the coast. If you want to feel fancy, find the ancient palace amongst all the rubble! After you’re grounded in the local history (see what we did there?), it’s time to hit the beach—ahem, beaches. Although small in size, Malia has beaches to spare. From sunbrella-sprinkled sand at Potamos Beach in the east to Central Malia Beach on the way to the neighbouring villages, you’ll find more than six stretches of sand perfect for swimming, sunning and snorkelling. If you prefer to keep your feet dry, join a boozy cruise in the Malia Bay to see the shoreline with champagne in hand. If the bubbly makes you feel knackered, just check in to your Malia hotel and rest up for the next round of adventures.
Touch down at Heraklion International Airport (HER), located just 31 km west of Malia. Hiring a car with Wotif is the easiest way to get around the open scenic streets. But before you take off, save on Malia accommodation and airfares when you book one of our sweet packages to Malia. Hurry—the beaches are calling!
