Malia is one of the most well developed touristic settlements of Crete, divided in "two" by the central road: the upper part of the settlement preserves the features of a traditional, Cretan village, with narrow paved streets, houses built with the traditional architectural style and picturesque taverns, while the lower contemporary part hosts all the touristic infrastructures, shops, cafeterias and of course bars for a crazy nightlife. Discover everything at a walking distance from Notos Heights Hotel & Suites.
Apart from the settlement, you can also visit the Malia archaeological site, where the third biggest and most significant Minoan palace (following Knossos and Faistos) has been excavated; according to the legend there reigned Sarpidonas, brother of Minoas and son of Europa and Zeus. You can combine the sightseeing with a swim at the beautiful, sand beach of Potamos, located right next to the site. Last but not least, it is worth exploring the picturesque villages, located southeast of Malia, such as Mohos, Krasi, Avdos and the neighboring and equally touristic Hersonisos.
