The Chania Prefecture region


Georgioupolis is a seaside village in Chania Prefecture, approximately 38 km southeast of Chania, in West Crete and 17 kms west of Rethymno town. Georgioupolis is set in a green countryside with a large beach stretching about 1.5 km eastwards.

Georgioupolis is on the border between Rethymno Prefecture to the east and Chania Prefecture to the west, although it belongs to the latter. The area around Georgioupolis is Apokoronas, with its picturesque villages and verdant landscape.

The River Almyros meets the sea at Georgioupolis. Just before the town, it forms a little lake that is home to many birds and animals. The lake is visible from the National Road, as you approach Georgioupolis from Chania.

On entering the town you see many eucalyptus trees, both along the road and in the main square, and a row of cypress trees forming a pretty picture.

How to get to Georgioupolis:

From Rethymno to Georgioupolis. Georgioupolis is only 20 kilometres from Rethymno, 15-20 minutes' drive along the National Road. Don't be tempted to speed along the long straight stretch from the Episkopi exit to Georgioupolis, as police radar traps are lying in wait to issue fines.

From Heraklion to Georgioupolis the distance is 100 kilometers, about 2 hours' drive

From Chania to Georgioupolis is 38 kilometres. As you head from Chania to Rethymno, you will see Georgioupolis signposted - it's a pretty popular tourist destination and you will easily get there in about 20 minutes.

Georgioupolis is 50 kilometres from Chania Airport, and you will need a hire car or a taxi to get there. From Chania and Rethymno, however, there are frequent buses all year round.

Georgioupolis is ideal for:

Georgioupolis is great for everyone, as it has good tourist amenities and lots of shops to suit every visitor.

Holidays in Georgioupolis are ideal for groups of friends, couples and families, and generally anyone in search of quiet holidays without missing out on nightly entertainment in bars and restaurants

In any case, Georgioupolis is ideally placed for exploration and excursions to neighbouring areas of great tourist interest.

Within a radius of 30-50 kilometers you can explore the Apokoronas area, visit Chania to the west and Rethymno to the east, spend the day on the Akrotiri Peninsula with its many beaches and historical monasteries, or travel to southern Crete, Sfakia and Frangokastello.


Kournas Lake is the only freshwater lake in Crete.

The lake is in a beautiful landscape, lying in a valley among the hills, about 3 km from Georgioupolis beach (west Crete).

Lake Kournas is relatively small, with a maximum length of 1,087 m and a maximum breadth of 880 m. It covers an area of 579,000 sq. m. and is generally shallow, 22.5 m at its deepest point, while it lies approximately 20 m above sea level.

Kournas Lake is the ideal place for an afternoon walk or a daytrip nearby. Many people like to have an afternoon picnic there. The landscape is lovely and relaxing, whether you want to go for a walk in the countryside, swim or ride a pedalo on the lake.

There are two springs on the southeast bank, one of which, the Mati or Amati (“eye”) as the locals call it, is visible in late summer. The lake is fed by streams from the nearby mountains and hills, whose underground courses are interrupted by the local bedrock on the way to the sea.

Lake Kournas and its environs are protected under Natura 2000.

The lake, an important wetland, is home to ducks and , eels and a rare species of bicoloured terrapin with a patterned shell, the Diamondback Terrapin (Malaclemysterrapin).

Herons and cormorants also sometimes appear on the lake.

Recently there have been reports of large goldfish appearing in Lake Kournas, as somebody dumped them there without considering the results of introducing a new species to a closed ecosystem.
