Holidays in Gouves
Got a nasty case of the travel bug? Don't worry — we've got the cure. Book a trip to Gouves and you'll feel better in no time!
It's situated 330 kilometres southeast of Athens, the country's capital.
Visitors will find a number of terrific attractions 13 kilometres to the west in Heraklion. It's worth taking a day to explore Palace of Knossos, the Heraklion Archaeological Museum, the Natural History Museum of Crete and everything else this region has to offer.
A day at Cretaquarium or Watercity Waterpark is guaranteed to put a smile on everyone's dial. Continue on to Dinosauria Park if you've got energy to burn.
Sitting 90 kilometres to the east, Vai Palm Grove is a terrific spot to spend the day relaxing by the water. Komos Beach also boasts some gorgeous scenery. You'll find this popular shoreline 60 kilometres to the east.
There is a range of interesting natural sights outside of Gouves. Why not venture 40 kilometres to Lake Voulismeni? Alternatively, immerse yourself in the picturesque sights of Cave of Psychro, 25 kilometres away.
Soak up the picturesque landscapes of Labyrinth Park. It's a terrific place to spend a few hours on a sunny day.
Can't live without sports? Then you'll want to look up the event schedule at Freedom National Stadium, located 14 kilometres to the west in Heraklion.
If you're thinking about travelling further afield, go 17 kilometres east to Malia. This is where you'll find Aquaworld Aquarium and Palace of Malia. We also suggest trying out Lasithi Plateau, 25 kilometres to the southeast, for the Folklore Museum and Dikteon Cave.
Travellers and locals alike often head over to Faistos. This destination is 50 kilometres away and close to Palace of Phaistos, Phaistos and Agia Triada. If you're staying a while, don't miss Propylon and Central Court.
To really experience a destination is to try the local food and drink, so prepare to chew, chomp, sip and slurp your way through Heraklion. The only thing you need to bring with you is a strong appetite!
Chicken and pork are some typical ingredients found in many dishes here. If you don't love them already, you might by the end of your trip!
Don't pass up the chance to dig into pilafi kritis (chicken pilaf) or moussaka (minced meat and aubergine casserole). These signature dishes come highly recommended by the locals.
Still got a bit of room after your main meal? Then put in your order for loukoumades (deep fried pastry with honey), an indulgent dessert.
To beer or not to beer? Of course, the answer should always be beer. When you're in this part of the world, Neda is the one you want.
You needn't be an authority on vino to recognise a nice glass! Here, Savatiano Retsina and Nemea Agiorgitiko shouldn't be ignored.
Before you pack up and wave "Ta léme argótera", why not spend the last of your holiday allowance and buy yourself some mementos of Gouves?
If you're flying back home, it's probably a wise idea to map your route to the terminal beforehand. From the middle of Gouves, you'll need to go about 10 kilometres west to Nikos Kazantzakis Airport (HER), the nearest airport.
