and Kato Stalos
, Agia Marina has turned out to be the largest resort area in Chania Region
Agia Marina is lively day and night. The place offers all types of hotels, plenty of restaurants and bars, fast food, bakeries and shops. The settlement is separated by the main road Chania-Kissamos
and there are hotels from both sides. The sandy beach is covered by sunbeds and parasols of beach bars and taverns, or of some hotels, but there is enough space between them. Various water sports are also available. Just opposite Agia Marina beach you can see the uninhabited rocky islet of Agii Theodori, with a big open cave. The islet is also known as the "kri-kri" island - this is the name of a breed of Cretan wild goat, and on Agii Theodori there is a natural reserve with such goats. You can visit the reserve by boat and after preliminary permission.
