Crete Area Information

Maleme, West Crete


Maleme, located on the north coast of Crete, was originally of strategic importance and the landing point of the German army in World War II. Today the exceptionally well tended. German military cemetery is a place in which to reflect. There is not really a village centre; the houses are to the left and right of the coastal road. The beach is a mixture of shingle and sand. Towards the beach there are some attractive new buildings which are also offered by the travel companies. The all-in Clubhotel Creta Princess has been running sucessfully for two years. Maleme is likely to merge with Gerani in the next few years but at the moment the location is not over developed. We´ll wait and see!
