Malia is surrounded by olive groves and the slopes of mount Selena. Malia is best known for its lively atmosphere; however Malia is not only for young people, it has a lot to offer everyone (almost) especially if you visit the old city and a few km before the traditional village of Koutouloufari, you wont regret it. The beach is the one of the best in Crete, three miles of fine, golden sand, which gradually slopes into the warm, clear blue sea. Just a few km away there is a climbing spot too :)

Road access: From Heraklion, when you arrive at Malia (1-2 km before) you can see the crag at your right. Then, pay attention to a road on your right (just after "Skyline rent a car"), there is a notice "Matheo Hotel". Turn right there and follow the road as it goes with direction to the rocks (on the right). After you pass a small hotel/house there is a small "parking" on the right, park your car/bike there. From that point you will see a small hand made door in front of you. Open it and follow the red signs. You will need around 10 minutes to get to the rocks.
