Whether you are more of a traveller/explorer than a tourist, or enjoy a good swim in a crystal-clear sea and lying in the world's famous Greek sun, or sitting under the night's sky sipping a refreshing drink and star gazing... if you are a foddie and seek new, memorable gastronomic experiences or a party person... well then Crete is the place to be!
Here you will find remnants of brilliant civilizations, glorious beaches, impressive mountainscapes, fertile valleys and steep gorges, as well as a rich gastronomic culture, picturesque villages and tourist resorts with amazing infrastructure.
Visit Crete, the birthplace of Zeus. Without doubt you will be enchanted by its magic and will definitely come back again and again...


The resort of Kato Gouves is NOT a... touristy place. Here you will be having dinner at a taverna or restaurant, sitting amongst locals. Kato Gouves features a number of cafes and bars, stores, supermarkets, bakeries, car and bike rentals, pharmacies, a medical clinic, ATMs and the most delicious souvlaki and gyros you have ever tasted!
The highlight of Kato Gouves is its sea-side promenade. Along the way, you will come across a boat marina and a beautiful chapel. You may choose from the rocky, "private" parts of the beachline or the larger, sandy beaches with loungers and umbrellas.
Gouves is close to many other seaside resorts, such as Kokkini Hani, Gournes, Analipsis, Anissaras, Hersonissos, Stalis and Malia, each having something unique to offer.

What to do when in Kato Gouves:
- The traditional village of Pano Gouves is a must-visit. It is only a few minutes drive.
- Continue further up from Pano Gouves, to the quaint village of Skotino, and its nearby Skotino cave, which is among the largest in Crete.
- Try sea sports: waterskiing, pedalo, canoe, paragliding, banana boat, or even scuba diving.
- Don't miss the famous Crete Aquarium, in nearby Gournes.
- Visit a Water Park (in Anopolis or Hersonissos). Kids will love it!
- Knossos, the great Minoan Palace, is only 20 kilometres from Gouves and there is frequent bus service.
- Visit the main city of Heraklion and the Archaeological Museum, the Historical Museum of Crete and the Natural History Museum.
