Drapanias is placed 35 km west of Chania Town. It is a pebbled beach near Kissamos town. Although the beach itself does not offer any facilities and accommodation, it is 5 km far from Drapanias village, which always develops tourist facilities, from bars and taverns to accommodation options with view to Kissamos Gulf. The beach is close to the ruins of an ancient Minoan settlement, the ancient town of Mythymna, which was believed to be built right onto the beach.
