The most privilage location of North-West Crete

The formerly small fishing village is found at the apex of Almiros Bay on the Sea of Crete, with Cape Drapano and its rocky coast to the north and the long 20km sandy beaches in the east.
Georgioupolis is very much a tourist town now, with many cafes, tavernas, small hotels and apartment blocks. The town square is surrounded by outdoor seating used by tourists enjoying their drinks and ice creams. The 9 km beach is the main attraction of the area, with Kalyvaki beach on the other side of the river as well.
A combination of three separate rivers flowing down to the sea and rare eucalyptus trees has created a unique environment that attracts unusual wildlife. Close by, a refuge has evolved to protect the pelicans and turtles that have settled there and little paddle boats can be hired to explore the backwaters.

Ideally placed for exploration and excursions

Georgioupoli is a well-located base for exploring the traditional villages of the area towards Vamos or into the White Mountains. Great for everyone, groups of friends, couples and families and generally anyone in search of quiet holidays without missing out on nightly entertainment in bars and restaurants.
