Thodorou islet: Discover the charming “secret” of Agia Marina from your balcony at a great couples’ hotel in Crete and Chania
Off the coast of Agia Marina, and clearly visible from the beach, lies the characteristic islet of Agioi Theodoroi, or Thodorou. The islet with the oblong shape was one of the best strategic locations in the area for centuries.
It’s not easy to miss Thodorou, one of the landmarks of Chania, Crete. You can admire the islet from your veranda, the beach, or the pool of Thalassa Beach couples hotel.
During the time of the Venetian rule in Crete, a big castle was on top of Thodorou, called San Theodoro. On the islet there was also the St. Theodoroi (St Theodor) chapel. So it’s not a surprise that the islet took its name after them.
Today, none of these monuments is still present. But during the last decades, Thodorou islet has become full of life again: a protected population of Kri-Kri, the rare wild goats of Crete, lives here peacefully, out of human intervention.
