Thirty seven kilometers southeast of Chania is the village of Georgioupoli, a fully developed tourist resort with 515 residents.
The village is in lush green area at the estuary of the river Almiros. Exactly at this point there is a small harbor for small recreational and fishing boats. The ruins of the ancient city of Amphilama are located here as well.
A walk along the banks of the river Almiros that runs through a beautiful landscape is well worth your while and offers an alternative to the usual swim at the beach.
There is also a plethora of tavernas, restaurants and coffee shop and a very vivid nightlife.
