People who want to be near the sea, with a wide variety of choices for excursions and fun, will get the most out of holidays in Maleme. Maleme is next to Platanias with its exciting nightlife, so you can take part in it any time you want. You can also avoid it altogether if it’s not what you’re looking for on your Cretan holiday.

From Maleme you can be in Chania, with the most picturesque old town in Crete, in minutes. You can also explore the west coast of Crete with the Balos Lagoon and the famous Elafonissi, or spend romantic moments enjoying the sunset at Falassarna.

There are so many possible excursions from Maleme that it would take a whole book to mention them all. Of course this is also true of every town and village in the surrounding area.

Maleme is also ideal for anyone interested in the recent history of Crete, and especially the Battle of Crete in the Second World War, when Maleme became famous for its airfield. Thousands of German paratroopers were killed trying to take Maleme Airfield and have been laid to rest in the German War Cemetery at Maleme.

Maleme Beach is worth mentioning. It is wide, sandy and quite long.
