  • Overview

    Pano (upper) Gouves offers sugar-cube houses and tiny whitewashed churches within a maze of cobbled streets built into the side of Mount Ederi. There’s a village square, plenty of coffee shops and some lovely views over Kato (lower) Gouves’ seafront some 300 metres below. There is an undertow to the sea just off the blue flag sandy beach, but this doesn’t seem to detract from the popularity of this part of the shoreline. Cafes, bars and tavernas are on hand if you’ve built up a hunger or thirst on a pedalo. Holidays in Gouves afford the opportunity to explore the island’s capital, Heraklion, featuring Minoan relics aplenty and the Palace of Knossos.
