Maleme

Maleme holidays

A peaceful holiday is on the cards if you book a break to Maleme. Enveloped by olive groves, this quiet village is spread across a dinky chunk of Crete, just down the coast from Chania. A pint-sized collection of shops, bars and traditional tavernas can be found here, each with a distinct local feel.

Unlock layers of history

This little town is home to a whole lot of history. In fact, it’s the very place where the island’s longest and largest battle took place during World War II. You can visit the German Cemetery, before heading to Tholos Tomb, a burial chamber dating back to the ancient Minoan era.

Chill out on the beach

Wide sandy Maleme Beach has ample room for you to spread out and relax in the Cretan sunshine. If you’ve got time to play with, make for Balos Beach, one of the island’s most beautiful spots thanks to its unspoilt aquamarine waters and soft white sands. 

Day trip to Chania

Dedicate a day to discovering beautiful Chania while you’re in this neck of the woods. The Venetian port town is a stunner, with a warren of cobbled streets, pastel-hued architecture and a 16th century lighthouse to discover. Enjoy sundowners at the buzzy waterfront and drink in the scenery – just wow.
