CurrencyA Gouves holiday shall take you to something of a purpose-built resort, with a welcoming, village-esque ambiance in the centre of Crete’s north coast.
Centered around one main street, the town largely caters to the typical holidaymaker looking to just relax and take in the sun. The time always passes smoothly in this no-fuss resort, where the main tourist magnets are doubtlessly the sun, sea and sand.
The three petite sandy beaches are fantastic for watersports, and particularly popular with windsurfers. There is also a waterpark near Hersonissos about fifteen minutes’ drive away.
Life does, of course, continue after sundown, although it stays relatively tame. Though Gouves has plenty in the way of lively tavernas, cafes and bars, it does so without having the more vigorous nightlife of neighboring resorts like Hersonissos.
Centrally located by the sea, a Gouves holiday is an ideal base for those also wanting to explore the rest of Crete.
