Gouves is a seaside tourist destination (18 km from Heraklion). Ideal for quiet family holidays, it has all the necessary infrastructure.
The beaches of Gouves are small, sandy, with shallow and warm waters: perfect for young children. The majority are organized and protected - up to a point - from the winds by small artificial breakwaters.
The area has many restaurants, hotels, shops and cafes so you can find what you need for your holiday or even for your trip to the beach.
