The seaside village of Agia Marina is located just 9km west of Chania city and is one of the most popular resorts in Chania, with thousands of hotels and all types of touristic infrastructure one can ask for.
The shore of Agia Marina is fantastic with lovely consecutive sandy beaches. At the west side, near the port of Platania, we meet many small artificial piers where one can swim. In the east part the beach, there is a long sandy beach extending to Stalos. Along the shore, you will find all the services offered in a well organized beach. 1.5km south of the village, there is the cave of Nerospilia, which has amazing stalagmites and stalactites, but access is not allowed as it's located in private land. This has been a place of worship during the Middle Minoan period. In Agia Marina you can visit the local folklore museum.
