  Georgioupolis
Georgioupolis is a very lively summer resort that, like Almerida, is very quiet in the winter. The town is very picturesque where the river flows into the sea. Georgioupolis offers most services including banks, post office, many tavernas, cafÃęs, and even a disco. Long sandy beaches are just a short walk from the town. Not far from Georgioupolis is the charming Kournas Lake, Crete-s only lake. Boating and picnic sites make Kournas very popular in the summer. From Georgioupolis, Rethymnon can be reached within 20 minutes and Chania in 40 minutes.
