Georgioupolis Holidays

Holidays In Georgioupolis
The beautiful seaside resort of Georgioupolis on Almiros Bay in the west of Crete has become an extremely popular family holidays destination in recent years. This is not surprising as it boasts all the facilities and amenities you would expect yet still retains the charm of the original small fishing village from which it grew. Additionally, you can enjoy cheap holidays here as Greece has become very reasonably priced following the country’s recent financial crisis. Those who enjoy quiet summer holidays will get the most out of Georgioupolis holidays, yet there is a wide selection of bars and restaurants available. Georgioupolis enjoys a warm, temperate climate with hot, dry summers, making it an ideal destination for your summer holidays. You can wander the narrow, winding streets of the unspoilt fishing village at the heart, visit the lovely, eucalyptus dotted main square and enjoy a drink and a meal in the shade. Or visit the charming chapel of Agios Nikolaus on the harbour.

Attractions Of Georgioupolis Holidays
As this peaceful, charming resort offers plenty to do to suit all ages, family holidays here can be idyllic. For a start the resort boasts the longest sandy beach in the west of Crete; 9 kilometres of gently shelving shoreline lined with cafeterias and restaurants. Here is plenty of opportunity for snorkeling or scuba diving in the crystal clear, warm waters. At the harbour you can see the local fishing boats landing their daily catch just as they have done since time immemorial, and no holidays in Georgioupolis would be complete without sampling the local fish speciality dishes. Hikers will enjoy exploring the quaint, traditional villages and picturesque landscape of the hinterland. Indeed, Georgioupolis is very well placed as a base for day excursions to other parts of the island. Nearby are the history steeped sights of the towns of Chania and Rethymnon, and the beaches and charming ancient monasteries of the Akrotiri peninsula. Your family holidays will certainly be memorable if you take an excursion to Lake Kournas to ride a pedalo or boat, and see the terrapin colonies, or enjoy a jeep safari or horse riding expedition exploring the exquisite Cretan countryside. What better way to get to know this ancient land? Boat trips along the rugged coastline are also a scenic joy.

Culture On Georgioupolis Holidays
You will find plenty of opportunities for reasonably priced meals at the resort, all helping to make vacations here cheap holidays indeed. The local dishes are characterised by the use of the region’s plentiful herbs, such as thyme, marjoram and oregano.

A form of grape alcohol called raki or tsikoudia packs a powerful punch, yet is so pure and refreshing. The unique sounds of traditional Greek music can be found in several of the local bars, played on the lyra and the lute. You will find that the local people are very friendly and welcoming.
