Your guide to Aghia Marina holidays
Agia Marina is a very appealing resort on the northern coast of Crete, just 20 minutes by bus from the enchanting city of Chania. The stunning beach is almost 2 miles long, and has been awarded a Blue Flag for its pristine waters and excellent facilities. A buzzy seafront promenade runs behind the beach, packed with shops and cafés. You can escape the seafront bustle in the narrow streets of the old village, Pano Agia Marina, where you’ll find some charming traditional tavernas. If you’re looking for nightlife, there are plenty of bars and clubs in Platanias, the neighbouring resort. And elegant Chania, the historic capital of Crete, is only 20 minutes away by bus.
The beach in Agia Marina is a stunning stretch of golden sand that has been awarded coveted Blue Flag status for its crystal clear waters and wide choice of facilities. The beach slopes gently into the sea, making the shallow waters perfect for even the youngest children. There are lots of sun loungers and parasols for rent, plus plenty of bars and restaurants where you can enjoy food and drinks. All kinds of water sports are available, whether you feel like renting out a paddle-board and want to zip over the waves on a jet-ski. The little island just offshore is a protected nature reserve, but a limited number of visitors are allowed: if you’re one of the lucky ones, you’ll find some blissfully unspoilt beaches.
