Enjoy a Tourist Resort With Traditional Charm
Having started life as a small fishing village, Georgioupolis has grown into a thriving tourist resort, yet thankfully, one that has lost none of its traditional Greek charm. Located on the north coast of the island, Georgioupolis boasts a fantastic stretch of beach making it easy to find a nice secluded spot.
This is also the point where three rivers flow into the sea and the largest of these, the Almiros creates a delta where you’ll find a small harbour which is the hub of life on Georgioupolis holidays. Regular boat trips from here will take you along the coast to explore hidden coves and neighbouring resorts. Enjoy day trips over to Spinalonga Island and Santorini or get the adrenalin pumping on a banana boat ride, sailing trip or paragliding experience.
Back on dry land there is plenty of stunning countryside to explore and you can expect to stumble upon charming traditional villages, succulent olive groves and luscious vineyards, all backed by the stunning White Mountain range. Good transport links to the historic towns of Chania and Rethymnon let you discover resorts with a totally different atmosphere to the bustling tourist beach areas. Evening entertainment can be found in the village square where a handful of bars and cafes come to life as the sun goes down.
As for where to stay on holidays to Georgioupolis, you’ll find a good selection of traditional guest houses and apartments close to the sea front, perfect for exploring the surrounding area.
