The long beach in Rapaniana is located 20km west of Chania and 4km east of Kolimbari. It is just a part of the vast beach stretching from Cape Rodopos to Chania, including the beaches in front of Skoutelonas, Minothiana and Rapaniana villages.
The beach, which is sandy and pebbly in places, is an ideal choice, especially when it is not windy. It is very clean and has all the basic touristic amenities nearby. You will find umbrellas, showers and a lifeguard tower. Rapaniana and its surrounding beaches are breeding points for the protected turtle caretta caretta.
The beach is named after the village Rapaniana, which is very close. In the village you will find mini markets, restaurants, hotels and rooms, health center, pharmacy, dentist, post office, bank, telephone and cars to rent.
