Visiting Gouves gives you the benefit of getting to visit two unique destinations for the price of one Greek beach vacation. The first of the wonderful worlds you will encounter is the old village of Pano Gouves which is built right into the side of Mount Ederi. This historic village is ripe with whitewashed homes and churches. And then, at the bottom of the hills, you will find your second world to discover: The scenic and picturesque seaside town of Kato Gouves. Here you will be able to soak in the wonderful surf, as well as enjoy some of the culinary wonders of the many restaurants and bars in the town. This is also where a lot of the more luxurious hotels in the area are located.
Another benefit of visiting Gouves is its close proximity to Crete's capital, Heraklion. The villages are only about a 25 min. commute to the capital, meaning there are plenty of wonderful day trips available for you and your travel companions, whether that is a group of friends, your family or even just a romantic getaway with a loved one.
Those visiting Gouves will likely be spending a lot of time on one of the Blue Flag rated beaches, soaking in the warm sun and enjoying the beautiful, warm, and clear water. These beaches are often dotted with many umbrellas as locals and tourists all spread out to enjoy a day in the sun and sand nearly any time they can. Of course, the beaches are able to be enjoyed more than just wading in waist deep, or soaking in the sun. You can sip on some coffee at a local cafe, or restaurant. Or, if adventure is more up your alley, you can enjoy the surf from a rented canoe, or banana boat. You can even partake in parasailing or scuba diving.
While staying in Gouves, a day trip to the capital city, Heraklion, is an absolute must do day trip because there you can take in some of the most fantastic shopping experiences at the designer boutiques, as well as explore the Venetian ports and the walled in old city. Here tourists can also take in some of Greece's brilliant history by exploring archaeological museums filled with ancient relics and restored elements dating back to the Palace of Knossos.
Once all of your shopping and sight seeing is done for the day, do not head back to your hotel hungry, as Heraklion is also home to some of the finest dining establishments in all of Greece.
When you are planning a visit to Gouves you do not have to worry about too much, at all. The weather here, like in most places in Greece, will provide you with plenty of warmth and sunshine during the summer months. However, if you rather take in the many wonderful sights and scenes without worrying too much about the heat, a spring or fall visit will do just fine.
