This seaside resort has a huge sandy beach some 12 km long – with clear blue-green waters that drop away suddenly. The Almyros river flows onto the beach .. and for that reason the waters are cold.
Well-organized, the beach is supplied with umbrellas, sunbeds and showers with lots of options open for water-sports enthusiasts. Though there is a lifeguard here, you must also take care if you choose to swim as the sea hereabouts has strong currents.
Georgioupolis is a particularly favoured destination – it has many hotels, rooms to rent, shops, tavernas and cafeterias.
