Wedding Venue Information

Malia Bay Hotel

You will find the Malia Bay Beach resort snuggled nicely on the northern coast of Crete in the pretty village of Potamos, the quiet eastern suburb of Malia. You will find Old Malia at the bottom of Mount Selena with the newer part nearer the shoreline. Take a stroll around the old Malia, through its quaint narrow streets with bougainvillea covered houses, and little taverns offering live Greek music. If you are looking for a livelier time, then the coastal area offers plenty of bars and nightclubs giving it a truly buzzing nightlife. Malia is also home to one of the most preserved Minoan palaces on the island. Dating back to around 1900BCE, it is thought to have been the epicentre for the political and religious powers for the area during the Minoan civilization. For nature lovers, take a hike in the Dikti Mountains, just a short drive from Malia and home to a wide variety of flora and fauna, including many endemic species as well as some spectacular sights. With the many different aspects of Malia, it is understandable why so many people choose it for their wedding destination.
