    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 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.
