Clubbers Guide to Crete

The best place to go clubbing in Crete?  Well there are two main towns to go clubbing and partying when you visit Crete depending on your taste in music and nightlife.

The first main resort is Malia, a huge 18-30's resort with a bustling beach road and main strip filled with bar and clubs.  Malia is ideal if your into RnB and funky house and are generally young enough to party every single night of the week.

The second town in Crete for clubbing is Hersonissos, this resort attracts more party goers from Europe, Ireland and of course the UK.  The clubbing scene is smaller than Malia but no less hectic and mad.  Music here is mainly trace, house and dance based with many guest DJ’s appearing through the season.

Malia - Clubbers Paradise

Malia just an hour away from Heraklion on the east coast of Crete.  The music ranges from RnB to funky house, old school dance music and of course cheesy disco music.  Some bars we can personally recommend have to be Candy Club, Banana Club, Factory, London bar, Jumpin Jaks, Zig Zags, Yiassou Melon Bar, Premier Bar plus many many more.

Drink offers range from 2 for 1 on most drinks, this is every night, plus free shots. Closing times are about 4 in the morning with some open till 6 am and some 24 hours.  If you cant get away from the drink then Petrino’s 24 hour bar is a must.

For the sun worshippers there are plenty of beach bars, from Dolphin, Bikini, Pleasure and Mikes beach, all playing great music and cheap sun beds.  You can get weekly passes for the sunbeds and get discounts on water sports for using a certain beach.

Also some of the beaches in Malia are related to the
clubs and pubs on the main beach road, so check out the beach scene and see what discount passes you can pick up for cheap drinks at night.

Hersonissos - Clubbers Guide

A varied and colourful resort,
Hersonissos is where all the people who like dance music, trance and house music come.  This resort is very popular with the Dutch, Irish and Italians and you will find many Dutch bars alongside Irish and English themed bars.

Clubs here are bigger than that of Malia and the atmosphere is still as friendly, drink prices are a little more expensive than that of Malia but some say the quality is better, especially the cocktails.  The biggest clubs are on the main road and a few situated on the actual beachfront of Hersonissos itself.

For Hersonissos drink prices add an extra euro or two to the price list, but in most places you still get BOGOF deals.  Its free entry into all of the clubs also, which applies to Malia also.

Another good thing is you don’t have to stand outside and smoke as in Crete you can smoke anywhere in pubs and clubs, the Greeks don’t mind at all.

Malia Club of the Moment!
The hottest club in Malia has to be the Factory, it has weekly foam parties, free bars, strippers, dancers and plays some of the best tracks in Malia.  If your into funky house, RnB or Old Skool then the factory is the place to visit.

Malia Beach of the Moment!
Dolphin beach offers you somewhere to sleep off the hangover from the night before, with great bar staff to keep you entertained, sunbeds are reasonably priced and the beach just sits off Malia island.  Make sure you book the BBQ!!!

Malia Hotel of the Moment!
Set back in the Old Town of Malia, there's nothing old about Oasis Village, lively days and nights with excellent rooms and a great welcome.  A 24 hour bar all through the summer this is the place to be.

Hersonissos Club of the Moment!
Check out Amnesia Club with DJ Billy, this club has great atmosphere, a hilarious DJ and some good deals on drinks.  If your visiting Hersonissos you will spend many nights in this place....

Hersonissos Beach of the Moment!
It has to be Star beach and Waterpark, with top DJs playing here all summer the atmosphere is tremendous.  Drinks are well prices the beach is huge and there are so many pools and slides to use.  Also don’t forget the bungee rocket!!

Hersonissos Club of the Moment!
Status Club on the beachfront is another excellent club to visit in Hersonissos, great music all through the night, cheap drinks with BOGOF offers, free entrance and brilliant atmosphere.  Check out Status Club in Hersonissos
