Aghia Marina Holidays 2018/ 2019
One of Crete's popular beach resorts, Aghia Marina is just a short journey from Chania and is joined by its beach to the neighbouring resort of Platanias. Aghia Marina is home to a long sandy beach with a range of facilities and water sports available. The plethora of bars, restaurants and amenities along the seafront make Aghia Marina a top family holiday destination.
Set a bit off the beach is the old town of Pano Aghia Marina, where you can find some of the original Cretan charm that would have been present all across this modern tourist resort some time in the past. Home to a picturesque square lined with open-air tavernas where you can enjoy some Cretan cuisine, narrow, rambling streets and a number of cafes, it makes a nice place to unwind after the go-go in Platanias or down on the main strip.
Life's a Beach
Aghia Marina's Blue Flag beach is 1 and a half miles long and, as a result, never really gets super overcrowded, even during the peak season. A host of tavernas provide seafront views and there's a number of water sports, tour groups and beach facilities available.
Just down the coast you'll reach Platanias, which has its own long beach lined with bars and restaurants and is a great place for a night out. Alternatively take the short trip up to Chania, the bustling mega-resort with everything you'll ever need for your Crete holidays.
