When you first take a look at Malia it may appear to just be another European town, full of high-rises, restaurants and businesses. However, the city most definitely has a wild side, too, as it has earned a reputation as Crete's party capital.
Thanks to the city's world-class clubs, bars and restaurants the night life in Malia is second to none. Add to it the plethora of activities available on many of the beaches, there is no wonder the town has earned its reputation. All of that said, Malia has a lot more to offer than just their Grade-A party credentials. Tourists wandering around the town can come upon lovely cobbled streets, small Medieval churches, and other wonderful historic architectural structures to explore in the old town. And, of course, there are the beaches.
Malia is also renown for its outstanding beaches. With over 5 km of wonderful, golden sand that has been divided into six different beaches, each and every one of them is backed by restaurants and bars.
One of the main beaches is Glozanie Beach, which is loaded with amazing opportunities to partake in some outdoor activities such as jet skiing, banana boats, as well as some underwater adventurous like snorkelling. For a more relaxing, family-friendly atmosphere you can take the trip down to Sun Beach and enjoy the sun loungers and umbrellas that line the beach making it the perfect place to lay back and soak in the sun.
For a more local flavour, you can check out Potomas Beach and its crystal-clear blue waters. This spot has always been a favourite amongst the locals, and remains one to this day.
Located just beyond the sandy beaches is Malia's main drag. This strip is loaded with fancy, chic bars, public houses and night clubs. There are so many of these on the main drag that you will have no problem finding something suitable for every need you have while on vacation. If the night life is something you are going to want to partake in, you are in luck. Malia is known for bringing in big-name DJs, and has special shows running all throughout the summer months. Oh, and here, a lot of the night clubs do not charge cover.
If you want to add a little more culture to your vacation, staying in Malia is the perfect in-between spot for you to take in a lot of what Crete has to offer. For example, the island's historical capital Heraklion is only about a 45 min. drive away (there are shuttles that take you there and back if you do not feel like renting a car.) In Heraklion you will be able to take in Crete through the ages as the architecture and beauty of the city ranges from modern all the way through the island's history with spots such as the Venetian fortress of Koules, all the way to the 19th-Century Ottoman Vezir mosque. There are also ferries from the capital that can take you to Athens, if you are feeling adventurous.
