Do you want to enjoy the sand, sea and quiet? And all of this in the shelter of a nature area? If so, go to camping Drepanos, a few km from the harbour town of Igoumenitsa, in the north-west of Greece. The camping site is situated virtually at the end of a crescent-shaped peninsula. A remarkable feature is the position of the camping site: directly along a long, slightly sloping sandy beach. So, from your tent you can walk straight onto the beach.
Shade of the eucalyptus
The surface is hard and the pitches are not demarcated. The pitches which are directly situated along the beach are more or less demarcated; these offer a wide view over the sea. From the beach you can see the ferries from and to Igoumenitsa. There are tall eucalyptus trees on the camping site.
Your fellow guests
Your camping neighbours form an international and colourful group of people who are not very demanding as far as luxury or perfect maintenance is concerned. During the weekend you will also see many Greeks from the city to spend a few peaceful days.
A swimming pool is superfluous here. From your pitch you just walk onto the beach and straight into the sea. On the (child-friendly) beach you can chill on the blue sun loungers under a white sun umbrella; an attractive colour palette with the azure sea in the background. There is also a lovely beach bar.
Fine local dishes
The much frequented restaurant (comprehensive menu) is also popular with guests from outside the camping site. From the restaurant terrace you have a view of the camping site (one side) and the sea (the other side). For many guests, good food and a relaxed atmosphere compensate the otherwise basic amenities.

Great new toilet and shower facilities. Reception staff friendly and helpful Great to be able to cycle to Igoumenitsa.
The restaurant was poor and the reason why we left. 8 thin slices of fried courgette! Beef steak uncuttable, extremely tough. The waiter said it was because it was fresh meat, don\'t know what he meant by that as we bought really good quality fresh meat the day before in Igoumenitsa and it barbequed beautifully. My fried squid had a piece of plastic wrapping on it, the waiter said it was not in the calamari only some wrapping the chef didn\'t take off!!??!!. He was very surly and only wanted to discuss the poor meal with my husband. This restaurant spoilt our enjoyment of the campsite
What a change on our return, after 3 years. We came for a night and stayed over a week! The refurbishment of the toilet/shower blocks was actually finished during our stay and they are excellent, with plenty of hot water and cleaned every day. Free WiFi worked over much of the site. Shop and restaurant opened on 1st May. Washing machine available. Staff very helpful.
The site is ideally placed on a good long beach. Convenient for ferries to Italy, or just across to Corfu. Easy cycle path (5 km) into the town and port of Igoumenitsa, with plenty of cafes and shops.
Price with ACSI Card very reasonable.
Very disappointed with this 'recently refurbished' site (ACSI Camping Card book 2015). Refurbishing the toilet/shower blocks meant whitewashing the outside walls, and that is all. Inside the toilets were dirty, some Turkish-style, some without seats, no paper, wet floors strewn with leaves and debris. I wouldn't even think of using the showers. The outdoor laundry and wash-up sinks had only cold water and were half full of rubbish and grimy water.
Free WiFi and an electric hook-up were the only usable facilities. This site should not be open in winter if this is all it can offer. Shop and restaurant closed until 1 May.
The sea-front pitches were all taken up with tatty old permanent caravans covered in plastic sheeting that flapped in the wind. The rest of the site was soft grass, muddy after rain. We parked on the roadway for one night and won't be returning.
An outstanding site. A very friendly welcome in this very well set out park. The pitches are large, and depending upon the time of year, a large number face out to the sea with a fantastic view. The beach is exceptional..the best we have come across in Greece..fine white sand and beautiful crystal clear water.Children safe and deck. Chairs etc on the beach for hire. The restaurant is very busy, good food and drink and well priced.Plenty of shade on all pitches was a bonus.
