Owner description: .A quiet, sandy beach, shallow water, great for children, with 2 beach bars and groups of sun beds. With rivers at either end of the sheltered cove, the beach is known locally as the "cold beach". You can work out why!You can also walk up the small church on the headland, snorkel or swim off the rocks, and visit the ancient ruins or the World War II gun embankments.

“Lovely beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

This is a lovely, fairly quiet sandy beach. 5 Euros for 2 sunbeds and a parasol. There are a couple of tavernas dotted around.

“Lovely sandy beach, great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Kalivaki beach is a short walk along the riverside in Georgioupolis. It's a curved and sheltered beach with lovely soft sand. There is a river at either end so in the mornings the sea temperature was very patchy with warm and cold bits. It's easy to get into the sea.
There are plenty of sunbeds €5 for two. There is Kaptains which is a beach kantina where you can get toasties, souvlaki, drinks and snacks etc. The service is very friendly and we enjoyed the food. Further along was Kalivaki Taverna which did more substantial meals. There are some studios and a swimming pool.
The biggest surprise was behind the taverna. Someone has spent years building miniature models of some of the well known sights in Greece. There was the Parthenon, Arkadi, Castle at Frangokastelllo, Palace of Knossos and also a model of the old harbour/port in Chania. they were all made of stone and quite amazing.
