Old Malia has some beautiful tavernas in the back streets. The hotel was 10 minutes walk to the top of the strip, plenty of bars and clubs to choose from - or get dragged into!

Beaches

The stretch of beach runs for over 5kms and is divided into six sections which are all lined with bars and restaurants. Glozanie Beach has a great choice of watersports and the Potomas Beach is popular with the locals.

Nearby Attractions

Malia's old town is a maze of cobbled streets and medieval churches which are perfect to wander around. However for those that wish to explore the nearby area, Heraklion is just a 45 minute drive away where there is a Venetian harbour, fortress and lighthouse to explore. Additionally visitors can take boat trips from the harbour to nearby resorts.

Heraklion Airport is approximately 38 km away - transfer time about 45 minutes.
