Castle of Firkas - Chania harbour
Chania Venetian Harbour

Georgioupolis is located 38 km east of Chania and about 50 km from the International Airport of Chania, 25 km from Rethymno and 100 km from Heraklion. It is easily accessed by the New National Road. Regular bus service during the summer months (bus station at the entrance to the village).
The seaside village with a harbor at the mouth of the Almyros river, full of eucalyptus trees, which provide shade during the hot summer months is in a unique area of outstanding natural beauty and is a popular destination for quiet and restful holidays. 

It is also an appropriate base for day trips around the area of Vamos with traditional villages, unspoiled nature and other interesting sites.

The history of Georgioupolis is directly related to the river Almyros (“Salty River”), which once had given the place the name Almyroupoli and which hosts many bird species, building a small pond just before reaching the sea.
The most popular attraction of the port is the chapel of St. Nicholas, which is built in the water in an artificial pier with rocks. It is worth walking up here to light a candle or to take outstanding pictures.
Georgioupolis, meeting the requirements and needs of every guest, will help you feel comfortable and is ideal for quiet and relaxing holidays
