Come for the sun, stay for the fun. The seaside village of Aghia Marina on the northwest coast of Crete is one of the island’s most popular resorts. Situated around 10 kilometres from the Venetian harbour town of Chania
, the main attraction is its long, sandy Blue Flag beach, fringed by shallow turquoise waters.
Along with its inviting golden shoreline, there are plenty of tavernas, cocktail bars and nightclubs to shake things up when the sun goes down.
Although Aghia Marina holidays are popular, it’s not difficult to find your own beach spot away from the crowds. The resort comes to life at night, but it’s more of a low-key buzz than full-on ‘Club Tropicana’ partying. Holidays to Aghia Marina are also a favourite with Greeks, so you will be able to rub shoulders and share ouzo shots with the locals.
