About the Youthful TownThis town is a popular spot for young adults. There is a lively nightlife with cute bars, dancing and great beaches. Just east of Heraklion, Malia is fifteen minutes away from the Crete airport by car. It has become the capital for young people in recent years.
Most of these teens hail from Europe and America in tens of thousands and fill the streets and beaches here, at all hours of the day and night. The golden beaches and charming hotels make the town a paradise for the young vacationers of the island of Crete and a few adults, if any, come to visit.
The bars and clubs here are open until morning, and from there the teens go straight to Malia's beautiful clean beaches, another day of lounging, swimming, and entertainment.
TipsSleep accomodations in the town are relatively cheap, especially the pensione lining the main road.
