This excursion takes us to a small picturesque fishing village in southwestern Crete, which has not yet been affected by mass tourism. Here you will not find big hotels, roads with traffic and cars. There are two ways to get here, either on foot from short walking trails or by boat. Come and enjoy the crystal clear blue-green water, the sun, the calm and the food in the picturesque taverns that you will find here.
For walks we recommend the beach in Marmara. You can get there either walking 2 hours or by taxi boat. It’s a unique walking experience overlooking the Libyan sea in a continuous coastal path that ends at the exit of the gorge of Aradena. The beach has fine dark pebbles and is surrounded by imposing white rocks.
Although relatively inaccessible, Marmara gather quite a crowd. The beach is organized and right next door you will find a small tavern with traditional food. You will have to return by taxi boat which you can order any time in the tavern, so that you can catch your return boat.
