Resort Summary

The vibrant town of Malia is made up of two distinct halves, which are split by a main road that’s bursting with energy. The first encompasses the coastal part of town, where you’ll find six beaches backed by bars, plus one of the best nightlife scenes in all of Europe.

Because really, there’s no need to pick between raucous and laid-back holidays – in Malia, you can have them both.
