THE BEACH SHACK
A cool, calm and casual counterbalance to Cretan Malia Park’s more formal dining options,
The Beach Shack is a brand-new concept for the hotel introduced as a part of the 2019 revamp.
An easy beachside outlet serving a full menu, the eatery and bar is a relaxed spot for guests to steal
away in the midst of the sandy beachfront. Late morning to early evenings sees a menu of Kostakos-curated
lunch dishes served — including light dishes like guacamole dip served with spicy pita bread,
to hearty quinoa salads livened with feta cheese, sun dried tomatoes and fresh homegrown herbs.
Opening Hours: 10:15 – 00:00
Lights Snacks: 12:00 – 17:00
Later in the day, The Beach Shack fully embraces its laidback styling and transforms into a bar,
complete with a soothing soundtrack of reggae beats, sunset views and creative drinks
like the Suncreta — a combination of mandarin-flavored Raki, red wine, lemon juice, Cretan botanical
syrup and soda water. Framed by terracotta Moroccan tiles, wicker lampshades, rattan umbrellas
and sprawling day beds, the late closing Beach Shack is set up for hours of leisure — from sundown and beyond.
