GeorgioupolisGeorgioupolis is a tourist, seaside village built in a plush green area at the foot of the Almiros river. The village was named after Prince George, the supreme commissioner of Crete. The beach has nice sand and is about 10 km long. Many hotels have been built on it. Be very careful when you swim because the currents at many points are very strong. If you get carried away, don't panic, the current moves parallel to the beach and not out to sea. Just be careful and watch the children closely.
