Traffic Information

If you hire a car in Malia and want to explore the town, you'll find that the main roads are pretty easy to navigate. If you need to reach Heraklion Airport in the west, it's just a few minutes' drive from the town centre to Highway 90, which will take you directly there in around half an hour. The smaller roads to the south are a little trickier to navigate, as they are smaller and more winding, plus they often go up into the mountains. However, each village is well signposted and there are plenty of cafes and restaurants to stop at along the way.

Sixt Tip


Malia is a pretty town in north east Crete that is known for its lively atmosphere. This party spot has some of the best nightlife in Europe, with great music and busy bars that are open into the early hours. You'll find lots of great restaurants too, selling local and international fare, and many little tavernas have outdoor areas to allow for al fresco dining as the sun goes down. It's not all partying though, as Malia has plenty of spots for relaxation. There are several tranquil, clean beaches and historical ruins for sightseeing. Plus, when you invest in car hire in Malia, you can easily drive south to visit nature reserves and quaint country villages for a taste of local flavour.
