The Georgioupolis resort is famous mainly for three things:
- A splendid sandy beach sloping very gently into the sea, about 9 km long and providing enough place for both entertainment and relaxation
- In Georgioupolis, it is the Almiros rivulet that empties there into the sea, with its banks covered with green vegetation where you can sit down in some of the many tavernas. Besides that, the fresh water and green vegetation provide enough living space for various animal species.
- Georgioupolis has a beautiful panorama. Towards the north, a rocky coast stretches, towards the east you will find a 10 km long sandy beach, and in the south, there rise the massive peaks of the Lefka Ori (White Mountains) to the height of 2 400 m.
What to do in Georgioupolis
Georgioupolis was originally an uninhabited place with a small fishing village, yet little by little, it was transformed into a small town living on tourism. You can find there everything you might need, including a great variety of tavernas, cafés, all kinds of spots, car rental services, beach attractions…
Given the sensitive approach to the town development, Georgioupolis has plenty of green vegetation, many colonnades, and also a very famous little square where you can sit down in the tavernas right under the treetops.
Another famous part of the town is the access road from Vrisses, planted with eucalypti.
Georgioupolis has everything in terms of tourist services. Unlike in other villages, you will find there a petrol station, a pharmacy, a post office, and internet connection.
Georgioupolis has its own nightlife which is well organized though. So, you if are travelling with teenagers, you can let them have fun on their own without worrying about their health or safety.
For those who don´t like to spend their holiday just idling on the beach but like to know new places and travel, Georgioupolis is the perfect point of departure to get to know the beauties of all western Crete, or possibly also the south-west coast. If you want to discover the beauties of the island on foot, you can make a trip to the unique freshwater lake of Kournas. If you have your own car, you should definitely visit the White Mountains with the large canyon in Europe - the Samaria Gorge. Obviously you will many historical sites in the town surroundings, including the nearby historical towns of Chania or Rethymno which are definitely worth visiting.
