just 9 km west of the town of Chania
20 km of fine golden sands against azure blue, clear, calm and warm waters: Blue flag awarded Agia Marina-Platanias is a sun-kissed beach resort; just 9 km west of the iconic town of Chania, on the Greek island of Crete. Named after the local church, this quaint seaside village is the top choice amongst families, solo travellers and groups of friends; trend seekers, party animals, and sports enthusiasts, alike. They all have many good reasons: Featuring well-organized facilities with comfortable sun loungers and umbrellas, a wealth of water sports including windsurfing, paragliding or jet skis, several cool cafes, hip bars, and clubs, and some of Crete’s best taverns and restaurants, Agia Marina-Platanias, is just the place to be for fun, action-packed days under the sun and glamorous nights under the stars.
The view to Thodorou, the beautiful deserted island which is the home of the trademark Cretan goat, Kri kri, of course, only serves to enhance the idyllic setting.
What’s more, access is easy, with regular bus service connecting Agia Marina with Chania, and taxis available on a 24hour basis.
