Frixos Hotel and Apartments

Just five minutes from the main strip, the Frixos Hotel and Apartments are perfectly located for convenient access to all that Malia has to offer, but with the added bonus of some excellent on-site facilities. A generous pool, complete with swim-up bar that serves excellent buffet breakfasts, gym and comfortable bedrooms create the ideal base for anyone that likes to be at the heart of the action, but you’ll still find quiet relaxation at the Frixos Hotel and Apartments. Pool loungers are ready for all-day lazing, but with a beach just a 10 minute walk away, you can choose where to get your dose of sunshine.

Overview of Malia

Holidays to Crete are fantastic thanks to the island having gained itself an enviable reputation as a beach lover’s paradise. Every region has something unique to offer, whether it’s stunning landscapes, incredible food or a piquant dose of history, so choosing one to stay in can be tricky. Malia brings together vibrant culture, lazy beach life and a jubilant night scene to create the ultimate one-stop holiday destination. You can spend your days topping up your tan, shopping or sightseeing, and then take in the buzzing nightlife later.

Things to do in Malia

The coastal half of Malia is beautiful, with plenty of golden sand split into multiple beaches. Beach Road is also lined with a host of excellent bars and cafes. You can find plenty of watersports tuition and equipment hire here too, to break up your sunbathing sessions. Take some time to wander around the cobbled streets, away from Beach Road, and you’ll find plenty of culture to soak up. Ancient ruins, tasty food and quaint shops are all waiting to be discovered, while traditional Greek cuisine is on the menu in local tavernas. The nightlife in Malia is vibrant and considered to be one of the best European destinations for all-night dancing and post-clubbing food, with many places located on the pedestrianised main strip.

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. On the other half of town is where quieter days are spent, strolling along the cobbled lanes of Malia’s old town and sipping coffee from the terrace of a local taverna.

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