Georgioupolis Beach in Chania
Information About Georgioupolis
Georgioupolis Chania: Georgioupolis is located 37 km south east of Chania town, on the Old National Motorway to Rethymno. It is a long, sandy beach that stretches for over 9 kilometres. Although it is affected by the northern summer winds called meltemia, the beach is very popular, especially on the west side. The eastern side has some deserted spots, if you prefer privacy.
In general, Georgioupolis is a well-organized beach, where, apart from swimming and sunbathing, you can practise sea sports, enjoy a refreshment drink at the beach bars or have a scrumptious meal in the seaside fish taverns. The traditional fishing harbor of Georgioupolis attracts many tourists.
You will find plenty of accommodation options on this beach in case you want to spend some days there. The area is well-connected with regular buses to the close by cities of Crete. Have also in mind that the nearby Lake Kournas would be a nice excursion to go on foot or by bicycle.
