Malia (Greek:Μάλια) is a coastal town and a former municipality in the Heraklion peripheral unit,Crete,Greece. Since the 2011 local government reform it is part of the municipality Hersonissos,of which it is a municipal unit.[2] It lies 34 km east of Heraklion,the Cretan capital city. The town (pop. 3,722 in 2001) was the seat of the municipality of Mália (pop. 6,212),located in the northeast corner of Heraklion Prefecture. The municipal unit also includes the villages of Mochos (Greek:Μοχός) (1,155),Krasi (Greek:Κράσι) (348),and Stalis (Greek:Σταλίδα) (987),and has a total land area of 60.720 km². The town is a tourist attraction,primarily for its significant archaeological site and nightlife. The Minoan town ruins lie three km east of the site and cover an area of approximately 1 km².

Malia is just a few kilometres from Hersonissos,which offers lovely beaches and a lively nightlife. A kilometres above Hersonissos are the traditional villages of Koutouloufari,Piskopiano and Ano Hersonissos. These are worth visiting one afternoon.
Thirty kilometres east of Malia is Agios Nikolaos with its picturesque lake. From here you can take the boat across to the islet of Spinalonga with its Venetian fort and small houses where the lepers were once kept isolated.

On the north side of the main road is the newer part of Malia,mainly consisting of hotels,apartment,restaurants and bars. Dimokratias Street,running north from the church of Agios Nektarios to the shore,is better known as the Malia Beach Road.

What you see here is a complete different image of Malia compared to the old town. Filled with clubs,bars,cafes,English and Irish pubs and fast food joints,serving anything from souvlaki to pizzas,it is the place to be for those who fancy a good night out.
Visit this street in the morning and you won’t see a soul. Most of the youngsters are sleeping,either on the beach or in their beds. Around 11 you will see the first tourists heading to the beach.
Late in the evening and during the night it starts to be the busiest road of Malia. Most of the partying and drinking takes place on the street,which is closed to traffic at night.
