The village of Agia Marina on Crete
The village of Agia Marina is situated on the northcoast of Crete on a few kilometers (9) west of Chania. It is one of a number of villages in a whole row in this part of the island which are all connected to eachother. The whole stretch consists mostly of modern and new buildings, the major part of it made of concrete and not very attractive. Most of the hotels on the beach are of the larger and luxurious type with large beautiful swimming pools. The number of signs and advertisements on the main street that is running in between the interconnected villages is larger than in some of the shopping streets in Amsterdam. The larger part of the houses it is not traditional or very appealing. The older part of the village, Pano Agia Marina - 500 meters upwards, has the more traditional buildings. This is the original part of the village. There is a nice and wide 2,5 kilometer long sandy beach though that comes with the village, with a view of an island (Agii Theodori) at a 400 meter distance from the shore. On this island are the remains of a Venetian fortres that was build in 1574 to protect another village (Platanias) against attacks from the Turks. The good beach and the beautiful views is what attracts the visitors. Understandably there are lots of hotels and taverna's in Agia Marina that you can choose from. If you are looking for a lively place, and still at the same time some peace and quiet, if you want a choice in plenty of restaurants, shops and small bars and you are also looking for a pretty sandy beach than this is a good place.
