Georgioupolis is a seaside village located 40 km from the city of Chania and 20 km from Rethymnon, with about 450 permanent residents. It is one of the most populous summer resorts in the prefecture and is built at the mouth of Perastiko and Almyros, on the edge of the huge sandy beach. Georgioupolis was named in honor of Prince George, who served as High Commissioner to Crete.


The area of Georgioupolis is famous for its beauty, which is why it is a frequent choice for both tourists and “locals”. It is an area will lots of green and running waters, while the two rivers form a magical landscape. One of the two rivers is called “Almyros” which forms a small lake just before reaching the sea, which hosts admirable aquatic life. The all-white church of Saint Nikolas located in the sea perfects the spectacle, as it offers peace and quiet to visitors. A feature that does not go unnoticed by visitors to Georgioupolis are the eucalyptus trees that decorate the road that connects the beach with the village square. In the square you will find taverns, restaurants, cafes and tourist shops that are always full of people.
