The region is very central. It's only a 15 minutes drive from and to the airport of Heraklion. Easy to go to a lot of nice places, towns and villages. The mountains with their views and mountain villages are lovely to discover. Some highlights are Lassithi plateau, Plateau of Kathero. The cave of Zeus and closer to Gouves the cave of Skotina. About 20km from Gouves it's a must to visit "Knossos", the Minoan palace. And if you like to walk there are several beautiful gorges and some lovely walking tours. Monasteries. In Heraklion you'll find interesting museums. ( Archaeological Museum of Heraklion, the Historical Museum of Crete and the Natural History Museum)
GOUVES, north of Crete is located 18 km east of Heraklion.
It's a large area, with Kato Gouves (lower Gouves) near the sea and the traditional village of Pano Gouves (upper Gouves), which is built into the side of the small Mountain. Ederi, only a little more than 300 meters high, with spectacular views.
The name Gouves comes from "gouva," which means a hollow in the earth.
BEACHES: Along the considerable stretch of seashore in Gouves, there are many excellent beaches. Some of the rocky areas offer privacy, while the larger, sandy beaches feature all the swimming amenities, from beach chairs and umbrellas to smooth seas, thanks to wave-breakers. The beaches near the centre of Gouves are popular. Near the little church the coast becomes rocky or pebbly. Past that, there are some wonderful little sandy beaches.
