A busy coastal resort with a fishing harbour, where the mouth of the Armyros River meets the sea. Well known for its towering eucalyptus trees which line the river banks, and surround the village square, which has many tavernas, cafes, gift shops and mini markets. Georgioupolis is also famous for the Agios Nikolaos chapel which is set on a causeway out in the sea, a sandy beach which stretches for 9 kms to the east. A favourite outing for both young and old alike is to rent a boat and paddle up the river to see and feed the loggerhead turtles. There are many activities in Georgioupolis including horse riding and mini-golf. The village is much quieter in the winter months, but has direct access to the National Highway, and is only 30 minutes by car from Rethymnon.
