“Tacky tourist overcrowded area”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012 via mobile

Going by reviews we were very surprised and disappointed the area of georgioipolis.
It was overcrowded and no sign of it being a fishing village with the cheap bars and restaurants close by with no quality traditional Greek food.
Would not recommend and would definitely not return.

“quaint little fishing village that tries to be a tourist town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2012

nice cafes just steps from the beach. I love to go here, sit at one of the cafes looking over the ocean, then take a dive. The snorkeling here is real nice. Even if it is windy elsewhere, the water here is usually still. Then I like to go jogging on the beach for a few kilometers, and come back. The quintessential beach town...

“A (very) big and a small beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2012

Georgioupolis has more than one beach; coming from Iraklion, there's a beach > 6 km's long, right along the road. The walking distance from the parkings is less than 3 minutes and you'll have plenty of space on this beach.
Near the village and in front of some hotel there's a rather small beach, crowded and lots of umbrella's. If you like to meet and see people, go there.
When you drive through the little village and cross the little bridge over the river you can turn right after 100 mtrs. The small road will end at Kalavaki's place. Nice taverna, beach and large swimming pool (paid for non-residents). The water is clear and rather cool, because of the creek coming in.
Don't tell anyone about this very nice beach.........
