Agia Marina is a seaside resort located 9 km east of the city center. It is especially known for the great tourist development and for the large number of visitors that increases every year.

The jewel of the area is the beach with the golden sand. The beach is well organized with umbrellas, sunbeds, cafes, beach bars and lifeguards. It is worth noting that the beach occasionally hosts loggerhead sea turtles that lay their eggs on the beach. Enjoy your day at the beach against the backdrop of the rocky islet of Thodoros.

The most important attraction of the area is Nerospilia with its dazzling stalactites and stalagmites. It is worth mentioning that Nerospilia in Agia Marina was a place of worship in antiquity.
