Like many resort villages in Crete, Georgioupolis is a former fishing village.

But thanks to the beauty of nature here, it became a resort town with developed infrastructure. A charming village with lush forests and mountain popes and three rivers will leave no one indifferent. The village originally had another name, Almirupoli. It was the basis in the 19 century after swamps around the mouth of the Almiros River were dried and planted with eucalyptus.

What to do:

In addition to sailing to the sea, it is possible to spend time at the freshwater rivers Almiros, Vlihada, and Delphinans. You will have the opportunity to swim with turtles living in rivers, ride a catamaran and go fishing. You are also offered slow sea walks by boat. It is necessary to visit St.Nicholas Chapel  it is the main attraction of Georgioupolis. The small church is on a rocky islet, which is led by a narrow dam approximately 200 meters long. From here there are picturesque views of the city and sea, thanks to which you can take very beautiful photos.

Outside Georgioupolis:

If you want to enjoy nature on the sea with a small number of tourists, you should go to the Drapano Peninsula. On it, there are both wild beaches and equipped for rest. 13 kilometers away is the village of Argiropoli. It all drowns in greenery and is known for cool springs. Near the village you can visit the ruins of the ancient village of Lappa and the Roman necropolis.
