Compare the best Malia holidays

*As standard all of our holidays are ATOL protected

We compare millions of holidays from the UK’s leading travel companies


*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.

Why go to Malia

Known for good times and a hearty dose of hedonism, cheap holidays to Malia are sought by fun-loving party animals who fancy a sun-kissed break.

It's easy to book holidays to Malia with TravelSupermarket: compare prices, book your break and then jet off to the party capital of Crete.

The lovely Greek island of Crete is reputed for its raw natural beauty, for the layers of ancient times gone by that ruffle the feathers of historians, and for the endless summer sunshine that kisses the skin of the island's adoring fans. Crete also has a reputation as a party island and that is for one main reason: Malia. This town is known for its heady soundtrack, a plethora of bars and clubs, game-packed beach days and good value hotels.

It's not all about partying in Malia, though this is the main reason why night owls flock to this seaside resort. The beaches are pretty spectacular in Malia - there are five kilometres of sands here. From the family-friendly facilities at Sun Beach to the famed party antics of Pleasure Beach, there's a spot on the sands to suit you.

The atmosphere is clearly not traditional here, though you can tuck into some delicious and authentic Greek cuisine at a number of good restaurants. The dining scene in Malia also offers up tastes from around the globe. Whatever you fancy - be it British, Chinese, Mexican, Italian or any other national flavour - there's an eatery serving up a dish for you.

The nightlife is legendary in Malia and when darkness falls, the neon lights of the town buzz into life. It's not difficult to find the main strip of action - simply follow the crowds. Away from the strip there are plenty of chilled-out bars and restaurants in which to enjoy a more mellow evening.

Hotels in Malia mostly fall at the middle and lower ends of the price range within Crete, with a good supply of two- and three-star hotels offering pools, clean but basic rooms, and lively pool scenes.

To book cheap Malia holidays simply use the search tool on TravelSupermarket and compare prices to find a deal that suits you.
