Dolphin Bar was absolutely excellent for what we were looking for. A day after arriving to Malia we were spent the morning wondering around the beach looking for a comfy and cosy place to spend our day with sunbeds and good cocktails. Dolphin satisfied entirely our needs. With the friendliest bar tenders and PRs you will ever meet in the island (local greek workers) we spent an entire week socializing under the beautiful sun having very tasty fishbowls, playing darts, and swimming in the sea. Food was high quality and very reasonably priced. Definitely recommended for those travelers looking to spend an afternoon chilling with your friends. 2 minutes away from a water sports rental (get special deals as well) and 3 minutes away from a beach volleyball court.

We found this gem on a walk along the beach, fabulous cocktails, food and service. Great views of the sea and beach with access to plenty of sun loungers and shaded seats, would absolutely recommend this place to anyone who comes to malia!

Dolphin bar has the best cocktails and food in Malia! If you want the biggest and the best cocktails make sure you get stopped by Ben on your walk on Malia beach! The only place where staff remember you and want you there for the company not only the custom. Best staff and regulars and the chef is fantastic. Don't just go somewhere that advertises a meal for 5 euros with skimpy proportions and looks nothing like the picture, go to the dolphin where a meal for 9 euros feeds you for a week and every mouthful gets a wow! We are members and won't go anywhere else on our two week holiday in Crete. The cleanest, friendliest bar and beach in Malia and the cocktails will not be matched anywhere!

Every day that we went to the beach we came here, they have there own sun loungers if you are using there bar and it is the ideal spot on the beach. Amazing coktails, good ole fashion style, mostly blended frozen ones with all the garnishes and wacky bits that modern cocktails sometimes miss like parrot straws and fake pineapples haha. Lovely, friendly staff, I believe they were Dutch and spoke perfect English. If I'm ever back here I'll be visiting the Dolphin and Molly Malones!
