Agia Marina….    Something for Everyone


Agia Marina a delightful village situated on the northwest coast of Crete.  Its long sandy beaches and crystal clear waters makes this an ideal holiday location for young and old alike.   Why not try jet-skiing, snorkelling, brave a para-flight, take a boat trip or just swim and soak up the sun and relax. 


Guests to this beautiful village, located just 9km from Crete’s former capital Chania, will be greeted by its warm, friendly and hospitable people.  Agia Marina, as all of Crete, is steeped in history and tradition.  Sit and talk with the people who will be only too delighted to tell you some of the stories that make Agia Marina and Crete what it is today.  Visit one or all of its four churches, each different, each beautiful, you will not be disappointed. 


Move inland and discover its varied flora and fauna.  Explore caves, visit the nearby lake, walk among the olive groves and trek along the foothills of the Lefka Ora Mountains.  Discover the many ravines:  Therissos Gorge, Topolia and its mountainside cave housing the small church of Agia Sofia and, for the more adventurous, Samaria Gorge.  A paradise for nature lovers and photography enthusiasts alike.


A short distance to the east you will discover the charms of Chania and a little further on Rethymon, both boasting picturesque Venetian harbours.  To the west the fishing village of Kolimbari and it’s monastery.  The town of Kastelli nestled between two peninsulas.  The enchanting 16th century village of Milia  its buildings constructed of stone and wood.  With each twist and turn of the road you will wonder at the ever-changing scenery.


Ride out for the day on a scooter, motorbike or rent a car.  Explore the many small villages each unique, partake in refreshments at a local Kafenio.  Organised excursions and day trips are plentiful.  Why not hop on one of the many small trains, the local inexpensive bus service or simply walk into the old village where old and new buildings sit side-by-side.


In the evenings relax at one of Agia Marina’s many family run tavernas, sample traditional Cretan cuisine renowned as one of the world’s healthiest diets.  Sit back and watch the spectacular sunset at a beachside café or restaurant.  Taste the local Raki or wine while the children play in the specially provided playgrounds within the grounds of many tavernas. 


Nightclubs, cocktail bars, music bars are all available for your entertainment and pleasure.  Enjoy an evening of Cretan dancing and music.  Look around the many shops offering handcrafted goods and souvenirs, open from early morning until late in the evening; as are the supermarkets and other facilities available for your convenience.


At the end of your holiday you, like so many before, will want to come back, possibly even stay.  Each visit will offer something new, something different, a unique holiday experience.  Agia Marina…. something for everyone.
