    Holidays to Gouves are perfect for those seeking a sunshine escape to Greece. The resort covers the sweeping hillside village of Pano Gouves and the quaint seaside town of Kato Gouves, where whitewashed buildings, ancient churches and beachside restaurants and bars will enchant. Spend the day on the Blue Flag beach with colourful umbrellas to laze under and blue shallow waters to splash in, but if you want to experience old-style Greece, take a stroll through its traditional villages and stop at a Kafenia for an authentic coffee along the way. Or, if you fancy scintillating nightlife, the famous resort of Malia is brimming with busy bars and clubs and is a short distance away.

     

    For those looking to explore further, you're a mere 15 minutes away from the swinging resort of Hersonissos and 25 minutes from Crete's capital Heraklion, ensuring there is more to a Gouves holiday than you may initially think. Gouves proximity to Heraklion means that long transfers are a thing of the past and once you touch down on the tarmac at the airport, you'll have your feet in golden sands in less than half an hour. Gouves is close to all of northern Crete’s major attractions including the Palace of Knossos and Spingalonga Island, so you’ll never be short of activities during your stay. Take a day trip to the pretty harbour town of Elounda and catch one of the boats to Spingalonga Island, stopping for a snorkel in the beautiful Greek sea on your way back.

    Be A Beach Bum At Kato Gouves

     

     

    Be A Beach Bum At Kato Gouves

    Go windsurfing on the sandy beaches or take a banana boat into the clear waters at Kato Gouves beach. Once you’ve worked up an appetite after scuba diving or paragliding, there are enough cafes and beach bars to check out nearby. If you prefer to laze for hours under the sun, be aware that you have to pay for use of sun-beds or the colourful umbrellas that dot the beach.

    Crete's Colourful Landscape

     

    Crete's Colourful Landscape

    Take a boat trip to the volcanic island of Santorini for a uniquely breathtaking view of black cliffs, whitewashed houses, blue-domed churches and steep terraces. If you’re in the mood to shop, head to Heraklion (25-minutes away) where you can buy high-street fashion brands at Daedalou street or browse the central market for Cretan cheese and affordable clothes and shoes. Hop onto the Happy Train for a meandering ride up the mountains and through picturesque villages, learning about herbs and sipping wine as you journey back.

    Hit The CretAquarium

    Tour the massive CretAquarium just a short distance away in Gournes, Heraklion, to witness the magic of what lies beneath the water. Little explorers will enjoy being guided along nearly 60 tanks, which host over 2,000 examples of colourful marine life. If you're after adrenaline-pumping fun for the family, head to the Aqua Plus waterpark where you can whizz through dark tunnels, zoom down the Crazy River or get a relaxing hydro-massage in the pool.

    Trek Through Samaria Gorge

    Drive through the White Mountains to reach Samaria Gorge, where you'll descend down 700 winding steps to explore wild nature trails. Surrounded by limestone cliffs, steep ravines and boulders, the 16km trail is not for the faint-hearted or the physically unfit. After your adventure, enjoy lunching at a tavern at the laidback coastal village of Agia Roumeli. Take a boat to Chora Sfakion and explore the fresh springs of Sweetwater Beach, from here you can take a ferry to the magical and laid-back village of Loutro.
