The Marathi beaches are very nice! It”s a 20 min drive from Chania. Be prepared for many Greec people, especially during Greec holidays and weekends. There are 3 different beaches and 5 or more taverna’s. Good place to go for a day.

We went with family and friends to the beach. The water is crystal clear and you can have an amazing lunch with fresh fish/seafood by the sea.

This Beach is very Nice, but kind of crowded. The Water is great and clean and the Beach has sand, not rocks. The Beach itself is not very Big or wide so it gets crowded easily.
