In the west of Crete lies the small village of Maleme, well known for its history and part of the Municipality of Platanias. Undoubtedly it’s a fantastic place to visit for its many sightseeing opportunities where you can explore the Grecian culture and heritage, like the ‘Airport of Maleme’, which was home to part of the Battle of Crete during World War Two.

If history and culture aren’t what you’re looking for, Maleme invites you to indulge in its beaches, which stretch for miles with stunning sea views. While it’s popular among tourists, Maleme’s small and friendly village vibe means it remains untarnished and very traditional, and you won’t be short of authentic experiences here. Quaint souvenir shops, as well as larger shopping streets, supermarkets, a pharmacy and bakery serving local delicacies are all on offer for a real taste of Greece.

When you arrive at Chania Airport, you’ll be drawn in by the buzz of excitement and keen to start exploring Maleme. By booking your Maleme transfers with hoppa, you’ll arrive happy and refreshed and ready to relax.
