Head east to Heraklion and Lassithi
When it comes to nights out, Malia in Heraklion is a pretty big deal. The decks here have hosted names like Judge Jules, N-Dubz and Lisa Maffia. Its main strip is chock-a-block with clubs, bars and pubs that hold their own against Ibiza and Ayia Napa. Lassithi, meanwhile, is the master of beach-and-town combos. Agios Nikolaos and Elounda are top picks for laid-back beach days with tavernas in easy reach.
