Located 35klm east of Heraklion, Malia is the capital town of the homonymous municipality that includes the villages of Mohos, Krasi and Stalida.
From being a common agricultural village to becoming a famous holiday destination for people from around the world, Malia has come a long way the past decades. The city of Malia today is as vibrant as ever with a variety of modern and traditional restaurants, bars and pubs, clubs and numerous beaches with water sports facilities.
The beauty of the town, however, lies on its diversity of sceneries. Something that a lot of foreigners seem to appreciate since there is a growing number of expatriates now living in Malia.
Although, the village center - especially during summer - is packed with tourists, you can always find a quiet romantic spot to appreciate the real beauty of the area. With unique for their natural beauty locations just outside the town, the visitor can benefit from the serenity of the Cretan landscape and enjoy the comforts of a modern town.
