TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Malia as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Malia is a coastal town and a former municipality in the northeast corner of the Heraklion regional unit. It lies 35 kilometres east of Heraklion, the Cretan capital city.
Malia is considered the 'Party Mecca' of Crete or the Cretan equivalent of Koh Phangan and Magaluf. In the area, one can find flocks of British tourists going there for their gap year, stag and hen parties or simply go there to rock it. Travelling to Malia is advised against as its cultural impact and natural beauty is minimal and other than crazy nightlife has not much to offer.
Malia is mostly ideal for the young, the party-goers, and the heavy drinkers. Every second place in Malia seems to be a facility dedicated to night-time entertainment. Standard establishments such as hotels and restaurants can be found all around. Also, if you would like to see a place retaining some of its authenticity, you could visit an old village located south of the main coastal road.
The two main roads of Malia are conjoined in the centre of the town, in front of the Church of Saint Nektarios. One of the roads is turned into a pedestrian zone and is considered the 'party lane' of Malia, where young tourists patron one of the many bars and clubs until the early hours of the morning. The second road crosses vertically the pedestrian zone and is full of cafes, shops, supermarkets and banks. This road tends to be calmer as well.
Malia is also home to the third largest Minoan palace in Crete. The ancient Palace of Malia belonged to legendary King Sarpedon, who according to the myth he was the son of Zeus and goddess Europa and brother of King Minos. Excavations around the area have also brought to the surface many burial places full of treasures and golden ornaments. One of the most famous discoveries is the jewel decorated with bees, that is exhibited in the archaeological museum of Heraklion. Unfortunately, many of the tombs were looted prior to excavation from the archaeologists and the number and nature of objects lost remain unknown to this day.
Fifteen minutes ride north from Malia is the traditional village of Krasi. The route will take you across a gorge lined with carob and oak trees. Krasi's most famous attraction is the huge plane tree, which cannot be circled even by ten people lined up. In the central village, you can have a coffee or eat in one of the traditional taverns and sample the local delicacies which are renowned for their quality all over Crete. You can conclude your visit by taking a walk along the alleyways and narrow streets of the village.

TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Georgioupolis as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Georgioupoli is a resort village 38 km southeast of Chania, in West Crete. The area around Georgioupolis is Apokoronas, with its picturesque villages and verdant landscape.
Georgioupolis serves as the end point of river Almyros, where its waters meet the sea. A few steps away from the town Almyros forms a lake that hosts an ecosystem of native species of birds and animals. You can spot the lake from the main highway as you approach Georgioupolis from Chania. Upon entering the town, you will be greeted by rows of eucalyptus and cypress trees all the way to the main square, which makes the landscape eerie and picturesque at the same time.
The beaches of Georgioupolis expand all the way eastwards, almost 7km from the village centre. They are sandy and well equipped to host an array of visitors and offer fun activities for both adults and kids. If you prefer a quiet spot you can look for the crescent-shaped beach right in the village. Also, the main square is quite lively and you can patron one of the many tavernas and bars and just sit and watch the world go by.
Just 3km from Georgioupolis visitors can find lake Kournas, one of the few freshwater lakes in the island. The lake is surrounded by the Cretan range of the White Mountains, which are reflected in its water and it used to be home to eels but now is famous for hosting terrapins and being a popular tourist attraction. As you enter the lake you can find plenty of shops and tavernas, as well as on the hillside overlooking Kournas. On the top of the hillside, visitors can enjoy mesmerising views of the lake. Despite the tourist influx in the last few years, the lake still retains its natural beauty and it is a worthwhile destination if you are in the area.
Georgioupolis is ideal for those who seek relaxation and tranquillity in their vacations. It retains the perfect balance between a town and a village, thus whereas you will be away from the hustle and the bustle of the city, you will never feel the isolation of the countryside.
