Georgioupoli Chania Crete is built at the "Almiro Pass" on the ancient road between east and west Crete; the bridge of "Elleniki Kamara" still survives. Georgioupoli was built on the site of the ancient city of Amphimala and very close to Crete's unique lake, Lake Kourna.
The village has spread out considerably in recent years along the clean extended beach that stretches 9 kilometers in the direction of Rethymnon. The area has been declared a nature reserve and has a rich flora and fauna. A tourist can visit evergreen Vryses, the villages of Maza and Alikampos with their Byzantine churches, and Kalamitsia places and other places. In the coastal district of Kourna Kavros a lively tourist industry has lately grown up on the endless beach, where every facility can be found.
The main village of Kournas is old and has interesting architecture, with the important Byzantine church of Aghios Georgios, and also Aghia Eirini. Interesting visits can be made to the local traditional villages of Kastelos, Patima, and Phylaki.
Three (3) rivers run into the sea at Georgioupolis. The road bridge crosses the largest, the Almiros, whose mouth creates a small harbor. Today Georgioupoli is an modern tourist resort. Every summer Georgioupolis village comes to life with residents and tourists meeting in the numerous cafe-bars, ouzeries, restaurants and taverns. Many small souvenir shops welcome the visitors as they take a stroll. 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. Impressive and beautiful scenery is backed by the panorama of the White Mountains.
