Located in an area inhabited since Neolithic times, Malia serves as one of Crete's major party zones.
Change things up with these side-trips from Malia: Rethymnon (The Venetian Fortezza, Rethymnon Old Town, &more), Heraklion (Ιστορικό Μουσείο Κρήτης - Historical Museum of Crete, Lampogialo - Rage Room, &more) and Fortress Spinalonga (in Elounda). There's still lots to do: explore the ancient world of Malia Minoan Palace, see Off-Road Tours, meet the residents at Aquaworld Aquarium & Reptile Rescue Centre, and head off the coast to Chrissi Island.
