Heraklion Gouves beach

General information

Gouves Beach is one of Heraklion's most popular family destinations, owing to its proximity to Heraklion Town.

On the rocky plateau at this small beach’s eastern end is a restaurant with a wonderful view of the open sea.

There are three more beaches in the area of Kato Gouves, however. The first lies to the east of the main beach, while the other two are located near the marinas of the settlement. All of them are sandy beaches through and through, and they are all organized with sunbeds and umbrellas.
