Most holidaymakers prefer to stay in the main Malia resort area, though there are a few traditional small hotels in the old village.

Malia is compact and gets very crowded during peak season and is known as a 24-hour party resort, with a surplus of bars, restaurants, fast-food outlets and nightclubs you will be spoilt for choice. The main “strip” is the almost a mile long that goes from the main street down to the seafront.

Over the past while all inclusive Malia holidays have been in serious demand and when you arrive you’ll soon find why. Clubbing holidays in Malia have the whole kit and caboodle when it comes to a party destination.

To keep you going during your holiday the bars, eateries and clubs have promotions running all summer long, together with a top beach you’d be a fool to be go anywhere else for a summer holiday.

Beaches:

For those who make it to the beach will find a beach that is lively looks stunning; in fact Malia beach is one of the best on the island. You will find a number of beach snack bars along the long sandy stretch. It gets very packed and has great facilities with sun umbrellas and loungers. The seafront is lined with hotels and bars, with lots of them playing loud music. The sea is usually safe to swim in but be careful there is a strong undercurrent during blustery weather.

As noted the abundance of sunbeds, parasols mean you can sunbathe all day and enjoy the selection of water sports, which range from jet-skiing, banana boats and other inflatable objects, parascending and pedaloes. There’s enough on Malia holidays all inclusive to keep even the busiest of us occupied, and if lazing in the sun gives you the urge to go and cool down in the water, why not enjoy one of the activities while you cool down.
