Gouves is an area in the sun-drenched Mediterranean resort, located on the north coast of Crete.
For those who love the sun and beach, and water sports enthusiasts, Gouves is the ideal place for an enjoyable holiday.
Goúves proper is often confused with its busy summer resort, Kátó Goúves. Besides this well developed tourist resort with long sandy beaches, the area has some traditional villages and interesting archeological sites and Eileithyia cave caves. West of Goúves
are the tourist resorts of Kokkíni Háni and Amnísos, both with similar attractions, and, to the East, lies Crete's biggest resort, Hersonisos.
