Kavros is a touristic area on the National Road of Chania-Rethymnon, approximately 41 kilometers east of Chania and 19 km west of Rethymno, just 3 km from Georgioupolis.
Although closer to Rethymno, belongs to the prefecture of Chania. This is an area with great hotels, one beside the other, near the beginning of a long beach of about 10 kilometers starting from Georgioupolis and ending in Petres near Rethymnon. The beach is organized with a shallow bottom, but it is exposed to the north winds and it is often wavy during the period of Meltemi, so it can be dangerous because of the currents. It requires attention. A short trip from Kavros is Lake Kournas.
