Marathi Beach Tours

Marathi Beach is located about 10 miles east of Chania in the western part of the island of Crete. Marathi is a small but popular resort village in the region with two sandy beaches separated by a pier. The beaches face south and enjoy calm, clear, and shallow waters. From the beach, visitors can view the gorgeous scenery of Drapanos Cape and the White Mountains. Due to its location, the beach is protected from the wind and there aren't any big waves here. This makes Marathi Beach an ideal spot for sunbathing and swimming. There are plenty of sun beds and umbrellas on both sides of the pier, as well as a variety of nearby restaurants and cafes that serve traditional Greek food.

Approximately 550 yards across from the beach is the small island of Palia Souda, which is popular with scuba divers. North of the beach is an ancient Roman town called Minoa where visitors can see ruins including the remains of buildings and Roman baths dating from the second century AD. The city was once one of the two harbors of the powerful city-state of Aptera.

Practical Info

Marathi Beach is easy to reach by car from Chania. The Chania International Airport is the closest airport to the beach and is only 6 miles away.
