DAILY STAR – Ooh Ahh Malia: Brits flocking to resort for OUTRAGEOUS party season

MALIA has been named the top party resort for 2018 – and this summer season Brits are going wild.

Pics on Instagram show lads and lasses enjoying raucous parties in nightclubs in the Crete town.The Greek resort was named the top destination for the best events in Europe, according to Mia Harper of booking company Party Hard Travel.In an exclusive interview with Daily Star Online, she revealed just why Brits flock to the party isle.

Malia holds the crown for some of the best events in Europe like the Malia Booze Cruise, Malia Live at Candy Club and Go Deep at Apollo.

And music is huge in the town with top artists Nathan Dawe, Preditah and Tiffany Calver all performing next month in August.

Mia added: “Whether you’re into hip hop, grime, house, dance or urban music, you’ll hear the tunes of your summer in Malia.

“Go Deep at Apollo is all about the urban, for international artists it’s Malia Live at Candy Club, and I Love House at Zig Zag is for your house and dance.

“The top names will all be raising the roof in Malia this summer.”Though it isn’t all about the parties.Mia pointed out the stunning scenery and breathtaking heritage of the area.

She added: “No, we don’t mean Blackpool but Malia’s very own Pleasure Beach.“Here you can laze by the pool, chill at the beach bar or go to the beach gym all in anticipation of the truly epic Paint Glow Party – included for free as part of Party Hard Travel’s Ultimate Events Package.“And the Palace of Malia is the remains of an ancient city, about a 40 minute walk from central Malia.“Make a day of it and visit the nearby Tropical Beach, a quieter beach than what you’ll be used to in resort.”

Brits boozing and partying in Malia isn’t without controversy.There was a drive last year by locals and authorities in the area to put a stop to the summer hijinks.Though this didn’t stop lads and lasses flocking to the resort.A huge 95% of the town’s hotels agreed to ban Brits who have signed up for the infamous 18-30 package holiday deal.

The move, which was reported to have blocked 10,000 UK visitors, includes scrapping pub crawls, and refusing bookings that exceed three rooms.

Malia authorities are aiming to turn the area into a family-friendly holiday destination.

Deputy mayor Efthymios Moutrakis said last summer: “Malia isn’t about sex, drugs and everything goes.

“It’s the prime tourist destination in Crete, bringing in millions of euros to the island.”Though last year Party Hard Travel’s Nathan denied this was affecting party tourism and questioned whether 10,000 UK visitors had been blocked – branding the number as “wildly exaggerated”.

He said Brit bookings had in fact increased a huge 400% in 2017 compared with the previous year.
