Georgioupolis is a former fishing-village by the western end of the bay of Rethymnon. Around the old village center, apartment facilities and hotels of any kind and size established themselves, and the old fishing port was extended to a small marina.
The landmark of ▶ Georgioupolis is a tiny white chapel on the tip of the pier.
In the village center and by the port there is a number of restful cafes and restaurants. The original Mediterranean flair can be felt up to the present day.

During thousands of years, the wind and the drift formed a mile-long sandy beach which continues under water. It therefore also suits for little children.
Some bigger hotel resorts were built along the bay in eastward direction, and on their beaches all kinds of watersports are on offer.
