The village also has two supermarkets, a bakery, pharmacy and a cashpoint machine. Once a small fishing village, it has retained its character with the advent of tourism. The area is a wildlife refuge with a small river, eucalyptus trees and a mountain backdrop. It is surrounded by historic sites, caves, museums and ancient ruins which are what make Crete so fascinating to visit.

Things to Do in Georgioupolis, Crete

Boat Trips

There are plenty of boat trips offered from Georgioupolis around the beautiful coast of Crete. Boat tours take visitors up the Almaris river to see the terrapin colonies. Daily snorkeling cruises sail to the nearby island of Thodorou where divers can view the World War 2 crashed German aircraft. Lazaretta Island is also reached by boat and the crystal waters are ideal for swimming and snorkeling.

Horse Riding

Horse riding is a relaxing way to see more of the island, but most stables only offer rides in the early morning and evening due to the summer heat. Horse-drawn carriages also take tourists around the area. Beach

Georgioupolis has a lovely gently sloping sandy beach which stretches for miles and is ideal for children with its safe bathing. The beach has plenty of cafés and bars just across the street which provide refreshments.

Georgioupoli Holiday Villas & Apartments (300+)

 

Recent Reviews

A beautiful, modern villa set in an outstanding site with exceptional views.

5 of 5
The villa easily surpassed the expectations we had for a family of 4 (Mum, Dad, 18 year old boy & 16 year old girl) from the description on the website. Fully fitted out to cater for yourself, we took the easy way out and ate out most of the time. There is an inviting heated pool set on a terrace with outstanding views toward Georgioupolis and beyond. The villa itself is situated on the edge of the traditional Cretian village of Kournas, full of local characters. Four local tavernas within walking distance and a wider choice within a 15 minute drive means there is no shortage of options. We have to recommend the patiserie on the road into Gergioupolis, just across the road from Fou Fous taverna. Breakfasts were excellent as were the take away pastries. Many, many calories! All in all we would highly recommend this villa for anyone looking for a restful break.

Good modern facilities in a quiet hillside location with superb views

4 of 5
We stayed in the twin-bed studio which was sufficiently spacious and suited our needs. The facilities were good and the hosts were very welcoming with a few provisions provided, plus some home-made preserved figs and mulberry raki. Having a private balcony with superb views was a bonus. Our only quibble would be the very basic cooking facilities in the all-in-one kitchenette, though we overcame that by eating out at lunchtime and only having a basic snack in the evening.
