Agia Marina

Agia Marina, Chania prefecture Crete

9km west of Chania is the small but busy tourist resort of Agia Marina. The village takes its name from its small church which was an important focus for Cretan opposition against the occupation of the Germans during the Second World War. Also, from Agia Marina, it is possible to take a boat trip to the small island of Agioi Theodori where the famous wild Cretan goats still roam free. The little island also has an interesting cave with amazing stalactites and stalagmites, the "Nerospilia" or Water cave.
