Crete has over 600 miles of glorious beaches, but it's just one small town with a massive reputation that you'll be heading for: Malia. A legendary lads holiday destination, Malia is home to one of Europe biggest party scenes. Groups from all over Europe make a beeline for Malia every summer to get involved with the unbeatable nightlife, stunning beaches and to have the holiday of a lifetime with their mates.
Malia is a popular destination for Brits so there are plenty of flights from most UK airports. You'll fly in to Heraklion airport and it's then a 45 minute transfer to the resort. There are plenty of accommodation options and something to suit all budgets... If you just need somewhere where you and your mates can rest your heads for an hour or two each morning then you're spoilt for choice!
Malia is a prime lads holiday destination. With the perfect balance of great bars for early drinks, and top class clubs to head to after midnight, you and your mates will be guaranteed nights out that you'll be talking about for years to come... Check out our lads holidays deals to Malia and get the ball rolling now...
As with all great lads holiday destinations, the action is based around the strip; in this case the road that runs along behind the beach. There are loads of bars with various drinks offers and themes for you and your mates to check out. Some favourites include Bikini Beach, the perfect spot to watch the sun go down and see who's about...
Or if you're after a more serious alcohol related warm up to your night, then head to the HELP Bar - where the fish bowls are more like fish-tanks - and there's a swimming pool in the bar! For some pre-clubbing tunes, head to the Loft which, never mind waiting till you hit the club, has banging music, a laser show and a foam machine!
In Malia, everyone ends up in a club. So it's a good job that there are so many top-notch clubs to choose from! The first one to mention has to be Coyotes Club; if you've seen the film, you can now live the dream - there are loads of great looking girls doing all of the routines - and a whole range of music to keep you and your mates (and all the ladies) grooving.
Malia's biggest club is the Camelot Castle Club: they have 3 bars and the maddest foam parties on the island - definitely one to get to. Or, for a proper clubbing night out at one of Malia's newest and maddest venues, head to Candy Club for house music, up-for-it lads and ladies, and a packed dance floor all night long...
Malia has three main beaches: Potamos Beach, Tropical Beach and the inspirationally named Sand Beach! They all have plenty to offer, whether you're making your own fun with a football or a few beers on the beach; or looking for other activities such as Jet Skiing, Paragliding or Scuba Diving, you'll find them all at these beaches.
Or if you head inland you could spend an afternoon at Kartland, Crazy Golf Malia or the Aqualand water-park... Your choice.
