Agia Marina beach

In front of the village of Agia Marina which is located nine kilometers west of Chania and is one of the most popular resorts of Crete, lies the homonymous beach with the lovely sand and the turquoise waters.

The beach of Agia Marina extends to the beach of Stalos. It is bustling and very well organized. On the western side of the port and close to Platanias you will find artificial coves ideal for swimming.

One kilometer away from the village there is the beautiful cave Nerospilia with a rich cave decoration as it was a place of worship during the Middle Minoan period.

Opposite to the beach of Agia Marina lies the island of Agioi Theodoroi, but it  cannot be visited. In the islet Theodorou – as the locals call it – you can only go once a year on the day of St. Theodoroi during the celebration of the temple built there.

Over the islet there is a farm, not only for wild goats, known as kri-kri of Crete, but also for rare bird species. Other mammals such as rabbits and rats also live there.

In the area of ​​Agia Marina you will find dozens of hotels to stay and any kind of tourist infrastructure you might need.
