30’s in Malia?

We like to party, but we prefer to party with people in our age... is that a good destination...? Thanks.

Hello there

I can’t answer from personal experience but have sons one mid twenties the other thirty and neither would now stay in Malia ( they are regular visitors to Crete for over 15years ) as it does tend to attract the 18-20s, why not have a look at Hersonissos instead or for somewhere quieter check out Stalis, which is the next door resort to Malia if you want to venture into Malia one evening ?

Have a look at Hersonissos which might be more what you are looking for.........and a very warm welcome to the Crete forum :-))

Thank you both! It's so great to get such warm replies and so fast!

Hersonissos actually looks great both beach-wise and nightlife.

Do you think the ages over there are really closer to 30s?

Hi there

Hersonissos does tend to attract couples and families as well a the younger travellers from across Europe and not just the UK....I suggest doing loads of You Tube searches for nightlife to get a feel if it’s right for you....and of course you have Star beach too..here is a link to Star beach which you might find useful

You are more than welcome and yes Malia itself (the strip not Old Malia) does attract more of an 18-23 crowd.

I tried to edit but ran out of time...ok Malia has the reputation of attracting the college age tourists, whereas Hersonissos the 25 plus....hope that helps :-)

There are a few clubs in Hersonissos but it's mainly restaurants and bars. It attracts many nationalities and ages, whereas Malia is definitely more 18-21s than 18-30s, and predominately British.
