Visit a village
Pano Aghia Marina is a traditional Cretan village just 500 metres from the beach. Enjoy wandering the winding lanes and village squares before heading to a traditional Greek taverna.
Make olive oil
Aghia Marina’s Folklore Museum is well worth a look – try to coincide your time there with one of its olive oil-making workshops or traditional feasts.
Sail to an island
Theodorou Island is only open one day a year (8 June) – the rest of the time, it’s a sanctuary for Crete’s kri-kri (wild goats) – but you can take boat trips out to its waters.
