Actually it’s 2 beaches separated by a pier.
Both sandy beaches and crystal clear water. Several bars and restaurants on the border of the beach. Easy access to the water. Showers on the beach.

We expected to find the beach crowded, yet it was not. There were plenty of umbrellas and beach chairs available for my family and I. Still, clear, and refreshingly cool water make a serene setting to float out into and gaze at the mountains that dominate the southern horizon. The beach was quiet for the month of August. Great for kids as the water is calm even during the meltemi, which showed its wrath almost daily back at Agia Marina where we were staying. I would say that the only drawback is that the water is quite rocky as would be expected in a protected little bay such as this. A little bonus is the tantalizing scents floating over from the nearby fish taverna, adding to the overall divine ambience of the place.

Beautiful beach. Well worth seeking out. Clear water. Sheltered. Good for swimming. Plenty eateries by the beach.
All the ingredients for relaxation!

We often go to Marathi simply because the swimming is almost always good there. Because the bay is so well protected, the water generally remains calm, even when the strong north wind blows and swimming becomes difficult if not impossible on the north Crete coast.
The bay is pretty; a little harbour wall dividing the two crescents of sand on either side. The tavernas are good and the views magnificent. We've had no problem parking there. On Sunday a lot of Greek families go there for lunch and this makes for a vibrant atmosphere.
