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
Tapas: 17:00 – 22:30
BEACH SHACK TAPAS
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, tapas and a 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.
