Description of the Cruise
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. At the end of the harbour is a small, decorative lighthouse in the Greek colours of white and blue. The most popular sight in the harbour, however, is the chapel of Agios Nikolaos, set on a manmade rock jetty. It’s worth walking along to take wonderful pictures. Whether the sea is calm or rough with foaming waves, the scenery is amazing.
