The main beach of Georgioupolis is a large sandy beach extending 1-1.5 km eastwards. The sea is clean and the beach has been awarded a European Blue Flag. You can pass the time pleasantly, swimming, sunbathing or trying various watersports.
Completing the exotic scenery is the great contrast of the glorious backdrop provided by the grand White Mountains or Lefka Ori occupying a good part of the centre of West Crete and being the main feature of the region. They are made of limestone and called White Mountains because they are covered in snow until late in the spring.
With these long stretches of golden sandy beaches stretching in front of the town combined with a serene environment and panoramic sea views, this piece of land is ideal for either an enviable residence or a holiday rental.
At a selling price of 100.000 Euros, this is a true bargain!
Georgioupolis lies at the northern coast of Crete, about 32km away from Chania and 24km from Rethymnon. It is a coastal town situated at the bay of Almiros, and belongs to the county of Apokoronas of the prefecture of Chania.
It is the seat of the municipality of Georgioupolis comprising of the village itself and the surrounding communities of Dimitrouliana, Asprouliani, Mathes, Mouri and Xyladiana.
Georgioupolis is built on the delta of the river Almiros. In fact it was called Almiros or Almiroupolis (city of Almiros) up to the beginning of the century when Crete united with Greece and the city took the name of the then king of Greece King George.
About a mile from the village on the way to Chania is a small hill, on top of which the ruins of the ancient city Amfimalla was built.
Although tourist facilities are expanding, Georgioupolis is still a small tightly knit community of locals involved primarily with the traditional activities of stock breeding, farming and fishing.
The long stretches of golden sandy beaches in front of the village, the small sandy beach of Kalyvaki at the opposite side of the river, the lake of Kournas close by and the proximity of the cities of Chania and Rethymnon, make it a good starting place for visitors.
