The party capital of Crete from May to October, Malia is a mecca for fun fun fun in the sun. The white sandy beaches are an obvious attraction to laze in the sun by day, although the all-night clubbers may not make the loungers 'til well into the afternoon! The clear warm sea is all too irresistible for a refreshing dip and crazy inflatables are among the wet and wild watersports. Each bay has its own lively beach bar, with resident DJ's pumping out the dance tunes throughout the day.
For a change from the beach scene, the old town is worthy of a wander, Malia Slides is a mini waterpark, you could book a jeep safari sightseeing trip or challenge friends to a paintballing battle.
From a full English to fish and chips, Tex Mex to Chinese, Malia offers plenty of places for cheap and cheerful eating out but there are traditional Greek restaurants too, serving mezze and moussaka, often with Bouzouki music and dancing thrown in. Countless bars and pubs tempt in the passing party people with all kinds of offers on drinks, from free shots to buy one get two free, while entertainment could be anything from a resident singer to 70's disco. By midnight, Malia's big clubs are warming up for the foam party frolics and podium dancing through 'til dawn, with some open 24 hours for the morning chill out too.
