Luxury Gouves Holidays
Gouves is the perfect place for those who want a beach holiday with a side-order of action. The main part of the resort (Kato Gouves) lines up a chain of sandy beaches, a main road fringed with restaurants and tavernas, and a seafront promenade that's made for evening strolls. Up on the side of nearby Mount Ederi (more a large hill than a mountain), you'll find Pano Gouves, the traditional counterpart to Kato Gouves. It's a quiet little village with a lovely main square and a network of crooked lanes lined with old houses. Nearby, you've got plenty of sightseeing options, from Crete's capital, Heraklion, and the Monastery of Saint John, to the spectacular Skotino Cave.
