Georgioupolis is a small but popular tourist resort situated between Chania and Rethymnon. Though the resort is well geared up for the tourist trade it hasn’t lost any of its local charm and remains one of the most pretty and idyllic resorts on the island with its pretty harbor, river and eucalyptus tree surroundings. The resort is ideal for couples of families looking for a resort with some nightlife but wanting to avoid the livelier resorts with clubs and late-night bars. Georgioupolis has a good range of restaurants and tavernas but is extremely family friendly and guests will feel safe and comfortable with children at night. Well worth a visit and only approximately five miles away is Kournas Sweet Water Lake, Crete’s only fresh water lake and a beautiful natural spectacle and with some luck guests may also see some of the fresh water turtles relaxing on the lake’s shores or swimming in the lake.
