You forgot to mention that it's full of Russians who think they own the place. Grin

#Georgioupoli - my favourite place on Crete

Judging from the number of searches for the word "Georgioupoli", I'm not alone in liking it. Note that the correct pronunciation is "Your you polly" and it means "Georgetown", named after its founder Giorgos Papadoyianni, I believe..

Good points:
Several MILES of beaches, stretching towards Rethymnon.
Scenic places such as the tiny Church of St Nicholas on the causeway and the little-known duck pond at the end of the Eucalyptus Avenue.
Lots of friendly cafés, tavernas, hotels and shops.
Close proximity to places of interest (Lake Kournas, Vamos, Argyroupoli, Rethymnon).
Relatively low cost of a meal.

Bad points:
Occasional smell of sewage.
One or two of people ignore the red flag and drown each year.
The new, unfinished, concrete constructions in the square and what used to be the car park.

Here's my photo of the little church:
