Iraklia Agios Giorgios Village
Agios Georgios Village Iraklia: Agios Georgios (Saint George) is the main port of Iraklia and the largest village of the island, with about 110 permanent inhabitants. This is where ferries that arrive on the island and fishing boats moor, creating a nice atmosphere.
This village owes its name to the chapel of Saint George that has been built within the village. All houses have nice view to the sea and the surrounding landscape is covered with sparse greenery.
Some tourist amenities have been constructed around Agios Georgios, including rooms to let and a few taverns. A beautiful, sandy beach can be reached in a walking distance from the port as well as the ruins of a Medieval Castle.
Excursion boats from Agios Georgios make the tour of the island, stopping at various beaches. They also connect Iraklia to the neighbouring island of Schinoussa.
