“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Marathi beach worths a visit when it's windy, is one of the few beaches (among with Loutraki) which the sea is always calm and you can swim. It is recommended when you have children. You can have them playing around without any problem. The bad thing is that is always crowded and full of families and noise. There are some options for good eating next to the beach. Overall not recommended for singles, couples or friends teens etc. maybe for families and if it's windy in other places.

“Fine place - worth finding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Dropped in here on the way home via the airport. Very pleased we did. A choice of shallow clean bays with a few decent eateries and free parking. Only 8kms from the airport - sets you up for the flight home and catches a few final rays.

“Do not go there!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

There is nothing to see at Marathi beach.
We went there because of the wind and we were told that there the sea will be calm. It was calm but it was very crowdy.

Small sandy beach with sunbeds all over we've found two sunbeds to sit at a beach bar but we didn't order anything cause
there was no service at all.

The water was not clear at contrary to the majority of beaches in Crete.

I suggest you go elsewhere there so many places to go in Crete this isn't one of them!

“Lovely beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

I love Marathi. It has got busier over the years, and fills up at lunchtime when the pirate boat arrives. You have an hour or two of bustle, and then everyone gets back on the boat and it's peaceful again... Water is clear, beach is clean, people are friendly and the restaurants are good too.
