You’ll have a bit of everything in Aghia Marina, from a blistering beach and lively nightlife to some fabulous day trips. So if an action-packed holiday’s your kind of thing, put it top of your list. The first good news is the beach. A mile-long sweep of silky yellow sands with beach bars, tavernas and watersports at every few paces, it’s wicked for spending whole days topping up your tan and gliding over the waves. Choose your spot, admire the views and let the soft offshore breezes waft you into a gentle daylong daydream. And when the sun gets too hot, take a swim in the cooling, clear waters. Once you get bored of beach lounging, you don’t have to stray far to find other amusements. The bustling centre overflows with local and international eateries so you can switch between moussaka and burgers whenever your tastebuds tell you. Gift and beach shops are thick on the ground for souvenir-hunting sessions and at dusk, the pace quickens as an array of nightspots, bars and clubs conspire to keep you and your pillow apart. And if you fancy some even more intensive nightlife, just head for neighbouring Platanias, which rocks with happening party spots. You’re in Greece, so save some time to experience some of the local culture and sights. Stroll up to Aghia’s old hillside village, where affable tavernas serve up delicious mezes and authentic home-cooked dishes. Explore beautiful Chania, a charming town that’s one of Crete’s must-sees. Or if you fancy escaping it all for a bit, strike out along the coast where peaceful sandy coves offer a contrast to your buzzing base.
