Located in an area inhabited since Neolithic times, Malia serves as one of Crete's major party zones.
Visiting Reptisland and Vai Beach will get you outdoors. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Malia Minoan Palace and Heraklion Archaeological Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Matala beach (in Matala), Heraklion (The Natural History Museum of Crete, Church of Saint Titus, & more) and Chrissi Island (in Ierapetra). And it doesn't end there: delve into the distant past at The Palace of Knossos, look for gifts at Eklektos Bookshop, pause for some serene contemplation at Panagias Keras Church, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Monastery of Arkadi.
