Maleme is a relaxed little seaside town overlooking a long shingle beach on the northern coast of Crete, a 20-minute drive from the enchanting city of Chania, and just 10 minutes by car from the lively resort of Platanias. This quiet little resort is particularly popular with families and couples, thanks to its laid-back charm, pristine beach and sprinkling of traditional cafés and tavernas. The beach is long and well-equipped and some sections are a nesting site for the endangered loggerhead turtle. Maleme is a great base for exploring the region, whether you want to do some hiking in the White Mountains, visit the beautiful and historic city of Chania, or seek out secret coves on the Rodopos peninsula.
