Mithimna Beach

mithimna 1 Venue: Mithimna Beach

This is a delightful laid-back village comprising a scattering of studios, apartments and a couple of excellent tavernas right by the beach and countryside. The beach stretches for miles (sand and shingle). You can walk and beachcomb all the way to the town of Kastelli.

One or two locals still bring their donkeys and goats down to pasture while they work their fields. Ten minutes walk inland is the village of Drapanias with other tavernas, two bakeries, some shops and the bus stop for Kastelli or Chania.

Best of all, 2 years ago made us a lovely quiet yoga space with an Iyengar style yoga wall. This is a really lovely quiet space and is well received by teachers and students.

At Mithimna Beach we have chosen the best of the local studios and apartments for you with well-designed rooms, gardens and views of the sea and mountains. Our first choices are Mousses Studios, which are modern, well appointed set in a fine garden. The rooms have balconies that look towards the sea. This is also home to our Yoga Studio. Other studios are available too, just along the lit coast road. All rooms have kitchenettes, balconies and air conditioning.

Mousses Studios – there are 8 studios/apartments in 4 blocks set in their own garden.


We offer camping here too. Mithimna Campsite is close by – contact us for a discount holiday price. There are tents for hire and wooden chalets too. All-day hot water and toilets are nearby. The taverna at Mithimna Beach is a particular favourite with David both for the food and the friendly staff – Juliet and Dave had their wedding party there.

While Mithimna Beach is a quiet 'away from it all' village it is within easy reach of town by either bus or taxi and it is just 25 minutes' stroll along the coast to a fabulous pool, overlooking the sea - it is free of charge for you.
