All About Crete Weather. Weather in Malia. This detailed 10 Day Weather Forecast in Crete for Malia, Heraklion Prefecture is prepared for the local ex-pat residents and holidaymakers. Malia (Greek: Μάλια) has a reputation as a "clubber's dream" for the young crowd from all over the UK and Ireland sowing their oats on the road to maturity as adults. So much so, some of these youngsters spawned the idea for the ITV series and then in 2011, the move of the same name called - "The Inbetweeners". "Inbetweeners" refers to the gap year before the yougsters start to attend university in Britain, or just chilling out after their "A" Level exams have taken place. Malia not only has good water sports and beach facilities but a wonderful "old town" which is a kilometre or so away from the beach front. Holiday Weather Tip: Forget the weather -- it is likely going to be better than back in Britain anyway -- and take a walk or bike ride the 2kms to the east of Malia along the coast road to find the Archaeological remains of a Minoan Palace. What you will see there is a fascinating glimpse into the Minoan Civilization that lived there some 3000 years ago. On the way back to your accommodation, stop off at one of several unspoilt swimming beaches with facilities and a couple of "Kantina" (mobile canteens) that always have cold beer, other drinks and food on the go.
