Malia is about 20 miles east of Heraklion Airport near Hersonissos and Sissi. Malia holidays attract a primarily young and lively crowd looking for sun, sea and sand and plenty of nightlife. The focal point of the bar and club scene on Malia holidays is the long main street that runs down toward the seafront. Here you'll find much of the late night action from modestly priced restaurants to music bars and dance clubs. The beach at Malia is a nice stretch of sand where you can laze around and rest from the previous night's excitement or take up one of the many water sports available, including water skiing, jet skiing and parasailing. You will also be able to get involved in some of the organized football and volleyball events that take place around the resort. There's a huge selection of restaurants to choose from on Malia holidays, serving up a variety of international cuisine from Chinese and Indian dishes to the usual fast food burger joints. Heading inland to the older part of Malia you will find the original village of Malia where you can enjoy some traditional Greek tavernas in a somewhat quieter atmosphere than the bouncing seafront bar scene. A good excursion on a Malia holiday is a trip to Heraklion, which gives you the opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle of Malia and see some of the picturesque Venetian architecture of the town.

Best week of my life (sad as it sounds)! I went in August 2011 with my 3 best friends and it was amazing. Bars and clubs were all really good and people were all really nice. Alcohol was really cheap as well. Great for a holiday with your friends. I'm going back again next year! x

Everything we'd hoped for...

Great town, the strip during the day and night is always busy and the drinks are so cheap. Definitely had our fill of shots and peach fishbowls...

The best thing about my stay was ...

Couldn't pick one thing. Just all of it.

Party, Party, Party

Malia is one big party. If you want a relaxing holiday don't go here. Its mental all day and night and I was more tired when I got home than I was before I went. Saying that it was ace. There were 5 lads in our group and we had a amazing week. The resort itself was quite nice. It wasn't as trashy as I thought it might of been but it is definately for the younger people. We were all in our late 20's and it felt like we were too old as most of the people there were between 18-22. If your looking for an 18-30 type holiday with your mates then I'd recommend doing it. The night life hours are 12am-5am so we usually had a quick kip about 7pm-10pm got ready and hit the hotel bar about 11pm. Its a good place and after about 3 days you know the resort inside out. The strip is faily long takes about 15 mins to walk from top to bottom and theres loads of bars and places to eat.

Just outside Malia - quiet and friendly

Just returned from a 5 day break just outside Malia - mid September and everything is packing up - bars/restaurants/clubs are quiet if not closed. Lovely area - great atmosphere in the evenings but just so quiet. Went into Malia a couple of times for shopping and drinks and it has plenty of everything you would expect of a holiday resort, tourist shops etc.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Plenty of selection of bars, restaurants, shops etc.

Island hoppinf

Malia was the first stop of our island hopping tour. We spent 2 nights here and loved it. We came at start of June so it was off peak season which we were wanting. Great variety of clubs, bars and restaurants. As we weren’t here long we didn’t get to see much but had a great time all the same.

Lively and cheap for everything

When we first walked down the main Malia Beach road it seemed pretty run down, with a lot of closed down bars but visiting it again at night we realised that many of the bars don't actually open until 10 or 11 pm. Every bar had people outside competing to offer the most drink for the least money but unlike some places they did at least do it with good humour and were quite friendly even if you said no thank you. We found everyone quite welcoming but as we were a family we were back in our hotel before the worst excesses of drunken behaviour were evident. I can honestly say we enjoyed being in the resort although our hotel was in a quiet area so we could escape the 'livelier' aspects when we wished. The beach is lovely and sandy with plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas with a good selection of water sports. The nearby Palace of Malia is fascinating if you enjoy history. Meals out are good value with a good selection of restaurants on the main strip but for a more authentic Cretan experience try Malia old town where there are more traditional Tavernas. One big point if you are visiting with children, the locals seem to think it perfectly acceptable to display hard-core pornography and other sexual items on the same shelf as souvenirs designed to appeal to kids. Several times I had to quickly steer my kids away from the most graphic material you can imagine whilst they were browsing for knick-knacks. There is no attempt to even place it at the back of the shop or on a high shelf, it often confronts you as you walk in the door so it's something to be aware of if that kind of thing bothers you.

The best thing about my stay was ...

The beach, Value for money food and drink and the best quality knock-offs I've seen!

Bit quiet for mid June

Loads of bars and clubs on offer, but I thought the strip was a bit quiet during the 4 days we stayed mid June 2011. The financial crisis in Greece at the time of writing this probably did not help...

The best thing about my stay was ...

The choice of bars
