We’re gonna be extra lovely and give you a rundown of 10 recommendations for things to do in Malia to make your visit a special one!

#1 Malia Booze Cruise

Opening up this list is our 2024 Party Harders’ choice for the number one Best Boat Party in Europe, the Malia Booze Cruise is your ticket to drink and dance across the Mediterranean. With no shortage of cocktails and a roster of the latest DJs, there’s no better way to keep your IG on point and drive everyone stuck at home mad with jealousy. Not only that, but we’ve also got a host of prizes to give away and some absolutely beautiful swim spots to make those unforgettable memories of Summer. Party Hard Travel’s Ultimate Events Package includes this and a whole lot more amazing events.

#2 Beach Days

The first thing to know about Malia is that you don’t have to search for long to find some of the most gorgeous beaches in the Mediterranean- that, coupled with the beautiful weather, makes for one of the best combos you could ask for if you’re looking to catch a tan in some beautiful surroundings.

Potomos Beach is one of our favourites and with its stunning views it’s definitely worth the 40 minute walk from Malia’s main strip. Come on, it’s a chance to walk off those shots from the night before! If the views suck you into staying later on, you’ll catch a lovely sunset and still have time to head back into town and hit the clubs!

#3 Water Sports

Banana Boats, jet skis and everything in between can be found on Malia’s main beach if you’re looking to seek some thrills out in the open water or get a little adrenaline into your system to counteract that hangover. No matter your group size or your budget, there’s always something exciting to do, not to mention that it’ll make that beachside cocktail afterwards taste that little bit sweeter! Our tip is to wait a while after eating before you hit the waves though…

#5 Dining Out

You might associate your lads or ladies’ holidays with cheesy chips between clubs or a greasy pizza if you’re lucky, but why not treat yourself to some real food and enjoy some of the tastiest, freshest cuisine that the Mediterranean has to offer? When you stay in Malia you’ll be surrounded by local delights like stuffed-to-the-brim Gyros, fresh Feta salads and tangy Tzatziki, so it really makes sense. If you’re feeling homesick and would prefer a taste of home, a classic Full English or a Sunday roast is never far away- what better way to bond with your pals and take a break from the non-stop action of your summer holiday?

#7 Go Karting

KartLand is probably one of the fastest things to do in Malia and is located only a five minute walk from the main resort.  It’s open all day and although it tends to be at its quietest around 11am to 2pm, the traffic does go down once again later on in the evening if you fancy skipping the drinks for another thrill ride. This activity is also very easy on the budget so if you fancy yourself as a speed demon it’s an absolute no-brainer!

It’s close by too, you can take a 15 minute taxi ride or even hop on the bus if you find yourself missing your daily commute.
