The municipality of Nea Kydonia is located west of the city of Chania and consists of the communities of Daratsos, Galatas, Stalos and Agia Marina. The main characteristics of this municipality are its big, clean, sandy and green beaches. The beach of Stalos, of Agia Marina and mostly of Agioi Apostoloi are some of the most popular.
The well-known yearly, five-day festival of Agioi Apostoli includes cultural, athletic and ecological events. Galatas is known for its history since it is the field of many battles fought against the Turks and the Germans. The Battle Monument of Crete which is located in this village is erected to honor those who died in the Heroic Battle of Crete. At Alikianos you can visit the church of Ai Kyr Yiannis, in Meskla the fountains and the Byzantine church of Christ.
Across the beach of Agia Marina lies the island Thodorou which you can get to by boat. In Thodorou you can see the fort ruins, the church of Agios Theodoros and the natural habitat of the Cretan wild goat. Nea Kydonia is a very touristically developed municipality with various hotel units and a lot of vegetation.
Agia Marina is 9 km away from Chania in the way to Castelli. It took its name from the church which is located on the small hill of the old village.The endless olive plantations, orangeries and all kinds of fruit-bearing trees with the limpid seashores make Agia Marina a modern touristic resort
There is a beautiful 2,5km beach with all the standard facilities. The thin golden pink sand of this beach and the trees along the seafront create an exotic setting.
Looking to the north, 400m out at sea, is the island of Agii Theodori(Saint Theodor). It symbolizes the local holy guardian. In the ancient times the little island was considered to be a great monster coming from the sea, with its mouth wide open to swallow the nearby village Agia Marina. Poseidon, the god of the sea transformed the monster into rock, so as to save the village. Also according to mythology the golden color of the sand was created by the flames that came from the mouth of the terrible monster.
In 1574, during the Venetian dominion, it was decided to fortify it, in order to prevent the Turks from landing in Platanias so they built a multi-angled fortress on the highest point of the island and called it Turluru, and another multi-angled fortress at a lower level, which they called San Theodoro or San Francesco. There we find a three-aisled chapel of the St. Theodori, but only its foundations remain today. At the present time, the island serves as a rearing place for the Cretan mountain goat, kri-kri, and is protected area.
Very close to the beach, and only 500m away, is the traditional village of Pano Agia Marina (upper Agia Marina).Here you will see lovely traditional Cretan houses and hospitable restaurants serve original Cretan dishes in a traditional atmosphere. In Pano Agia Marina there is also a cave (WATERCAVE) with unknown length, which becomes an issue of study for archaeologists and speleologists from all over the world.
Agia Marina is a beautiful, fully organized small society with Bank, drugstore, many shops, Gas Stations, Hotels, Pensions, Restaurants - Taverns, Rent a Car, Cafe bar, Club, Disco, Travel Agencies, Jewelries, water sports camping and many other touristic enterprises.
