    Much crowded and noisy
    We had at first booked a hotel room in Malia for 8 nights but after two days there, I couldn't find some peace. All you see is drunken British with a beer at hand. It is really a shame because the area around is so nice amd the beach is so clean. We immediately packed our things and looked for a hotel room somewhere else, in the close villages. After a lot of effort (it was middle August, the most crowded time to go for holidays in Crete), we found a room in Hersonissos, not that high class as our hotel in Malia but at least quieter.

    Malia
    Malia has the best taverns on Crete. Very friendly staff and nice drinks. There I ate the best dakos and onion pies. The beach is also nice and very long. Also very crowded, so get your own umbrella because you might not find anyone left.
