Beach Resorts of Crete

1) Platanias - Agia Marina

The adjacent villages of Agia Marina and Platanias are the most famous ones in the Chania district since they have the liveliest sandy beaches, some of the best tavernas, restaurants, cafes, bars and clubs, which attract locals and tourists every day, and a very short distance from the city of Chania (8-9 kms). The two villages are located one after the other and they have such similar characteristics so that they can be regarded as one beach resort.
