Kato Gouves offers a wide stretch of sand which shelves gently into the sea and offers some good swimming. Watersports are also available for those who want to get out on the sea and the beach is fringed with tavernas and bars.

A drive to the top of Mount Ederi should be on the list of things to do and a wander around the old village of Pano Gouves is also a great way to spend the afternoon. For those seeking historical sites there are many churches to see including Agios Georgios (Saint George), Agios Ioannis (St. John) and Panayia (dedicated to the birth of Our Lady). Visitors should also take a trip to the island's capital of Heraklion is only a 30 minute drive away where there is a Venetian port and old walled city.
