Apokoronas Special -  Georgioupolis - Crete - Island of Greece -Yeoryioupolis-                           in German

Georgioupolis

River Perastikos


Three rivers run into the sea.

Georgioupolis is situated in a region with plenty of water and
old trees. A special feature of the place are the eucalyptus trees, especially the pretty eucalyptus avenue on the old road to Vrises.


The road bridge crosses the largest, the Almiros river, whose mouth creates the small harbour.
 



Today the travel-boom has changed the life of the residents and tourists keep them very busy for six months of the year. Then they are alone again for a short winter season. Then once again, the village comes to life with residents and tourists meeting in the numerous cafe-bars, ouzeries, restaurants and tavernas.
In the last hundred years, many things have changed in Georgioupolis.
The once small village with its 9 km long sandy beach enticed the first "do it yourself" holiday makers, who found a few rooms available in the village.
The beach is busy with people enjoying the sand, the sea, and a drink at the beach bars.
Idyllic places around the rivers and marshy areas can still be found despite the increase in construction.

Many small souvenir shops welcome the visitors as they take a stroll.

 

 

Impressive and beautiful scenery is backed by the panorama of the White Mountains.

The vine, olive and cypress landscape with its small mountain villages is especially lovely
for a day's excursion.
 

Activities: swimming, sand and shingle beach (approximately 8 km), beach walks and water sports, horseback riding, supervised children's play area, tourist train with different excursions, such as the wells of Argyroupolis, the Lake Kournas, Vrises and many more...
