Crete has mild Mediterranean winters and hot summers, with high sunshine 12 months a year, very small seasonal changes in temperatures and rare extreme weather conditions.
There are many ways to get from Gouves to Heraklion Airport (HER). You can use public transportation, hire a taxi, or rent a car or van from many rent-a-car shops in Kato Gouves.
Here are some pictures from our visit to Anopolis Heraklion Crete village and the Agios Ioannis Theologos Monastery in the outskirts of the village.
Anopolis is a small picturesque village located just three kilometers south from Kato Gouves and almost 15 kilometres from downtown Heraklion. From the old village of Hersonisos to Anopolis the distance is about 16 kilometers.
Plaka is a small traditional fishing village just 13 kilometers north of the town of Agios Nikolaos in Lasithi with a tiny port and crystal clear waters
Piskopiano village is between the old Hersonissos and the Koutouloufari village, in the Hersonissos Municipality located on the slopes of Mount Harakas
Gouves seaside village has many tourist facilities and a calm environment, away from the noisy world in Heraklion, Hersonissos and Malia. Gouves coastline extends to over four kilometers offering a tremendous selection of beaches and some spots with spectacular sea views.
A visit to Arkadi Monastery, in Rethymno, is a must destination that nobody should miss during a trip to Crete Island. A gorgeous spot but then so profoundly set apart with the Cretan battle for independence. Arkadi Monastery is a useful place to understand the history and tradition of Crete.
Gouves is a great place to relax and enjoy all the activities and attractions that it offers. The best part is that is at the center of the Creta island so you can visit some of the best attractions on the island
One of the best beaches in Malia is Potamos beach which is very close to the main beach of Malia and just 300 metres from Malia Archaeological Site, the Minoan Palace of Malia
