                      The house of 'Kerash Bey' is close to the 7km beach where you can swim (child friendly) snorkle, go fishing, eat at the local tavernas or just have drinks in the evening by the beach.

                      The peninsulas & surrounding mountains & gorges offer great scope for walking, climbing & trekking also suitable for mountain biking & cycling where you will discover a host of wild flowers in the spring & maybe catch site of Griffen vultures circling above.

                      There are many more beautiful beaches to be visited within an hours drive of Drapanias which will take you through spectacular mountain scenery & remote picturesque villages.

                      There are many ancient sites to be explored locally including the Venetian fort of Gramvoussa (boat trip) later occupied by Turkish pirates (& founders of Drapanias village) & Helenistic ruins of Pollyrenia & Fallasana.

                      The Venetian Port of Chania (25km) is great for eating out round the harbour, shopping down Leather lane or dancing to Cretan music in the bars & tavernas.

                      Other Activities: painting and drawing facilities/materials. seasonal festivals and parades.
