Gorgeous Georgioupolis holidays 2021
A vibrant little seaside resort, Georgioupolis has a gorgeous setting on the northern coast of Crete, about 18 miles east of Chania Town. Prettily backed by hills covered in citrus groves and orchards, the small town spreads around a charming main square and overlooks a long sandy beach. There are lots of taverns, cafés and shops, and it’s particularly popular with families and couples, thanks to its laid-back island charm. The beautiful and historic cities of Chania Town and Rethymnon are a short drive away, if you fancy some sightseeing and shopping, and you can also explore some delightful inland villages and picnic by Lake Kournas if you want to escape the coastal hubbub.

Your guide to Georgioupolis holidays
Thanks to its sandy beaches and authentic Greek charm, little Georgioupolis has grown into a popular seaside resort. You can relax on the main square, enjoying a drink and watching the world go by, take a stroll around the picturesque harbour, or simply bask in the sun on the beaches. These are well equipped with sun loungers and beach bars, and offer a choice of water sports, from kayaking to diving. There are plenty of wonderful day trips, whether you want to admire the gorgeous Venetian harbours in historic Chania Town and Rethymnon, picnic by Lake Kournas, or escape the crowds and head for the hills.
The main beach in Georgioupolis extends for more than a mile, and is a lovely stretch of golden sand that shelves gently into the turquoise sea. It has excellent facilities, including sun beds for rent, beach bars, and a life guard post. The shallow waters are calm and great for young kids, although occasionally the wind can pick up and make it choppy. The town also boasts a second beach, Kalivaki beach, which is smaller but equally well equipped. The main beach extends all the way east to Kavros beach, and is part of a virtually unbroken string of beaches, which stretch for 10 glorious kilometres along this picturesque coastline.
