Gouves Village is located 19 km east of Heraklion and 16 km from Heraklion International Airport. Gouves is a large area, including the popular village of Kato Gouves, next to the sea and the traditional village of Pano Gouves, which is built under the side of the small mountain Ederi with spectacular views. The name Gouves is derived from the Greek word "gouva," which means ‘’a hollow in the earth’’. Kato Gouves is a famous tourism destination. Gouves is neither a village nor a town. It is an inhabited area which owes its development to tourism, this is a sparsely-populated area which largely retains its earlier farming character.

The Cretaquarium (just 5min away) is part of the Thalassocosmos, one of the Mediterranean’s largest complexes devoted to marine science, education and recreation. It provides face-to-face contact with the vibrant sea life of the Med - from hunter sharks to tiny seahorses. A fascinating and educational day out for children and adults alike
