7 days Crete From Malia


Im going on 7 days holiday on the 18th of may and staying in a hotel in Malia. I plan to rent a car fo at least 5 days to be able to see the west island a little as well.

Reading through the aticles i have found lots of sights on the west island but not a lot around where i am staying. Could someone please give me some ideas.

There are photos of lots of these places on this thread - and as Hersonissos is only a few miles from Malia, the advice is the same:


If you don't mind driving longer, say for about 1.5 hours, large areas of the south coast - for instance Matala, and the area towards Makrigialos east of Ierapetra - are also within reach, as well as Rethymnon to the west.

A few other places near Malia not yet mentioned:

Skotini cave.

Hersonissos harbour and waterfront
