The climate of Malia on the island of Crete (Greece)
Malia is located on the Mediterranean Sea in the central northern part of Crete. The popular seaside resort Hersonissos is in the vicinity. Over the past few years Malia has become a popular holiday destination on Crete, where it used to be a fishing village with a few motels. The Lassithi plain is in the vicinity. Just outside the village a Minoan palace can be found which is fully restored, just like the one at Knossos. The most popular attraction here are the wide beaches. Mostly English people come here to enjoy their holiday. Just like other places on Crete Malia has a warm Mediterranean climate strongly influenced by the Mediterranean Sea. Summers are warm and dry; winters are very wet. During the winter temperatures are 13 degrees Celsius on average. Because of this the city is not really suitable as a winter sun destination. During the hottest days of the summer a refreshing sea breeze offers some cooling.
