Why Choose to Holiday in Malia
As the seaside resort of Malia is built alongside 5km of some of Crete’s most beautiful coastline, it offers tourists an enormous amount of seafront to relax upon during the day! But if you’re looking to party, rather than relax, you’d need look no further than Malia’s main strip; located just behind the beachfront, it’s crammed with hip bars, traditional pubs and exciting clubs for you to enjoy.
Crete has a long and steeped ancient history, and there are plenty of opportunities to explore this on the island. The Minoan Palace, also known as Knossos, is considered Europe’s oldest city! It’s well worth the visit if you are at all interested in history.
On top of this, if you’re interested in Greek culture then the island’s capital might be for you. The city is roughly 45 minutes away by car and is a brilliant day trip if you want to experience the islands cultural history.
Food, Drink & Nightlife
Most of this party atmosphere is generated in and around Malia’s main strip, which is home to numerous clubs, pubs, bars and restaurants. The close proximity of many of the resorts main hotels and apartments also helps to keep the atmosphere of the strip alive throughout the night! If you’re looking to have a great night, some of the best clubs on the strip are the Apollo Club, the Zig Zag Club and Warehouse.
As Malia is located on the island of Crete, it falls under the jurisdiction of Greece and therefore is a member of the Eurozone; accordingly, the primary currency on the island is the Euro. Sunshine.co.uk recommends beginning to look at exchange rates up to a month before you’re due to travel. By doing so, you will hopefully be giving yourself the best opportunity to get the most Euros out of your Sterling.
Again, with Malia being located on the Greek island of Crete, the primary language of most of the island's inhabitants is Greek. However, as the islands primary source of income is from tourism, many of the islanders speak very good English. Nevertheless, it’s polite to have a grasp of some of the basics such as ‘hello’ and ‘thank-you’!
