TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Georgioupolis as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Georgioupoli is a resort village 38 km southeast of Chania, in West Crete. The area around Georgioupolis is Apokoronas, with its picturesque villages and verdant landscape.
Georgioupolis serves as the end point of river Almyros, where its waters meet the sea. A few steps away from the town Almyros forms a lake that hosts an ecosystem of native species of birds and animals. You can spot the lake from the main highway as you approach Georgioupolis from Chania. Upon entering the town, you will be greeted by rows of eucalyptus and cypress trees all the way to the main square, which makes the landscape eerie and picturesque at the same time.
The beaches of Georgioupolis expand all the way eastwards, almost 7km from the village centre. They are sandy and well equipped to host an array of visitors and offer fun activities for both adults and kids. If you prefer a quiet spot you can look for the crescent-shaped beach right in the village. Also, the main square is quite lively and you can patron one of the many tavernas and bars and just sit and watch the world go by.
Just 3km from Georgioupolis visitors can find lake Kournas, one of the few freshwater lakes in the island. The lake is surrounded by the Cretan range of the White Mountains, which are reflected in its water and it used to be home to eels but now is famous for hosting terrapins and being a popular tourist attraction. As you enter the lake you can find plenty of shops and tavernas, as well as on the hillside overlooking Kournas. On the top of the hillside, visitors can enjoy mesmerising views of the lake. Despite the tourist influx in the last few years, the lake still retains its natural beauty and it is a worthwhile destination if you are in the area.
Georgioupolis is ideal for those who seek relaxation and tranquillity in their vacations. It retains the perfect balance between a town and a village, thus whereas you will be away from the hustle and the bustle of the city, you will never feel the isolation of the countryside.

TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Agios Nikolaos as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Agios Nikolaos lies 63km east of Crete’s capital Heraklion, north of the town of Ierapetra and west of the town of Sitia, Lasithi’s capital.
Agios Nikolaos is located along a hilly terrain overlooking the coastline and the idyllic Mirabello Bay. Agios Nikolaos is unique amongst other Cretan urban centres as it manages to mix a blend of artsy, leisurely, sleepy and yet vibrant environment. It is the cosmopolitan capital of the Lasithi prefecture and boasts 20000 permanent inhabitants. The name of Agios Nikolaos is derived by the old Byzantine church located west of the city.
One of the highlights of Agios Nikolaos is the Lake Voulismeni, a lagoon of extraordinary beauty riddled by legends and myths. It is said that in its eerie scenery goddess Athena used to take her baths in it. Moreover, it was a common belief that the lake had no bottom, until 1853, when a British admiral ordered soundings to be taken and found out a bottom that reached to 200 feet in depth. Nevertheless, the assumption that the lake was indeed bottomless was used even in modern times to attract tourists in the town. Apart from taking some long walks around the lake and appreciating the mesmerising landscape, one can take the opportunity to dive into the serene waters of the lake and spend some quality time surrounded by nature.
Agios Nikolaos offers a number of other excellent attractions, such as splendid neoclassical architecture, well maintained buildings and a network of stairs around the steep city, the marina, All Saints Island which is home to the endangered species of Cretan wild goats, Kitroplatia square which houses some shops, cafes and restaurants and the Gulf of Mirabello which is of unique beauty and should be one of the 'must sees' if you decide to make your way to the city.
