Malia is a bustling coastal town on Crete, Greece's largest island, known for both its antiquity and its crazy nightlife. Malia holidays appeal to everyone from the history lover to the partygoer and all in between.
The town’s waterfront is a great home base for your Malia holiday. Start your day with a swim at one of the many beaches; the closest beach is just 1 km from the centre of town and is lined with bars for midday refreshments—adult or otherwise.
In the afternoon, soak up some ancient lore with a visit to one of Malia's many historical sites. Around 3 km east of town is the Minoan Palace, which was first built in 1900 BC and, as legend has it, was home to Sarpedon, Zeus's third son. If you've got time after you've finished exploring the palace, check out the nearby Dikteon Cave, said to be the birthplace of Zeus. As you descend deep into the mysterious, eerie cavern, it's not hard to imagine the folklore coming to life.
After a day or two exploring Malia, you could always "island-hop" with a Santorini holiday. The catamaran is the quickest form of travel, making just a short day trip possible, or you can check out the local hotels and spend the night.
You won’t have to carry your bags far with Malia holiday packages near Beach Road, the main strip in town. It’s crammed with shops where you'll find virtually anything you need—bags, clothes, knickknacks, you name it. Just want a quick memento? Pop into one of the souvenir shops, which are known for their hand-painted pottery.
Beach Road is also home to many restaurants and cafes, but for the best atmosphere, book a Malia holiday package near Old Town. Wander the narrow streets, admire the charming older houses and relax at one of the romantic, flower-filled restaurants that often play live music. Eat authentic Greek cuisine with the locals and prepare for your night out on the town.
You’re in a city known for its party atmosphere, and when in Malia, do as the Malians do: Hit the clubs! Malia rivals even Ibiza as a party town, and the sheer amount of clubs, bars and partying in the streets is evidence of that! The easiest way to experience as much as possible is to club-hop down Beach Road and return to your hotel to sleep it off in the morning.
If you're ready to submerge yourself in some Mediterranean sun and sand (and admit it, a little bit of partying!), it's time to book your holiday to Malia.
