If you’re heading to Crete with a view to enjoying the energy and excess of some of the island’s nightlife hotspots then you are likely planning a trip to Malia. The town is renowned across Europe as a great place to party. But if you’re more interested in some more leisurely activities, like a gentle stroll or a look around some centuries-old ruins then you’ll have plenty to go at as well.

Whatever you’re aims in setting off for Greece’s largest and most southerly island, you would be well advised to check out some of the local restaurants, where the food tends to be extremely fresh and the cuisine, in general, is extraordinarily tasty. You will also want to pack some suitable sunscreen as well because the weather in the summer months spends most of its time being little less than scorching.
