General description: Turtle River

Turtle River is a common name, used mostly for tourist purposes, for the Almiros River, located in Georgioupolis, Crete, just 8 kilometres west from the town of Heraklion.



This very short river (1.8 km long) is known for being a nesting place for one of the largest populations of water tortoise in Crete. There are seven reported types of tortoises living in the waters of the Almiros River.



The area near the river is still relatively uncrowded, therefore it is a popular place among visitors looking for a relaxing destination. The Turtle River is conveniently surrounded by hotels and other places to stay.
