Used to be a small village located by a very long sandy beach. Although the village is now entirely geared towards catering for the tourists it remains quite attractive with its small fishing harbour, its river and large eucalyptus trees. Georgioupolis is located right by the national road between Hania and Rethimno. Good connections by public transport. There are also quite a few restaurants in the village, some bars and maybe a discotheque. It has the longest sandy beach in West Crete (9 kilometres) where you can still find quiet spots.
