Malia holidays take you to a lively, modern resort on the northern coast of Crete. Originally an old village set back from the coast, it has expanded into a popular destination for those seeking a party atmosphere by night and a pleasant beach by day. The old town is a favourite with couples, while the bars, discos and clubs along the waterfront draw many young singles. The sandy beach, one of the best on the island, is over two miles long and provides a variety of water sports. The combination of soft sand and shallow, warm water is ideal for families with young children. Those with pre-school age children should try to book early or late season when the beach is less crowded. Activities in the area include a water park, horse riding stables and a go-karting track. If you wish to make the most of your visit, car high is recommended. The traditional villages of Koutouloufari and Piskoplano are well worth visiting. You should also visit the principal town, Heraklion, with its old Venetian fortress and its mosque. If you are looking for a guarantee of summer sun, a stunning beach and a high octane nightlife, a low cost Malia holiday would certainly fit the bill.
