Malia

4.2
Ruins · Nightlife · Beaches
Located in an area inhabited since Neolithic times, Malia serves as one of Crete's major party zones. Drawing a young crowd of pleasure seekers with its frenzied nightlife, at the height of the season this small coastal town rivals Ibiza in terms of big crowds and even bigger parties. Despite this, Malia's old town remains a pocket of sophistication and culture. Within this district you can discover the quintessential Cretan labyrinth of narrow backstreets and cozy taverns. History buffs can also explore the remains of a Minoan palace, the site of ongoing excavations since the 1920s. Add Malia and other destinations in Greece to your travel itinerary using our Greece trip planner.
