Maleme Holidays

Maleme is a quiet, relatively undeveloped resort with a calm beach front area.

Maleme, Crete, Greece

The Resort

The quiet resort of Maleme is just 20km from Chania and offers a good range of tavernas and restaurants but not much in the way of nightlife. The resort is famous as it was here that the most important part of the battle of Crete took place and is now home to the German War Cemetery. The ideal resort for families and couples who want a quiet beach holiday in a low-key resort.

The Beach

The beach is relatively long, made of sand and is far less crowded than the beaches of neighbouring resorts. There are some umbrellas and loungers on the beach but these tend to be in front of hotels and cafes.

Things to Do

Maleme offers a variety of shops, bars, tavernas and even a disco or two. If you are looking from a break from sunbathing, you could try your hand at one of the many watersports on offer at the beach. Fishing trips from the beach can also be organised. A popular attraction in Maleme is the German War Cemetery, where 4465 German soldiers are buried.
