At Kato Gouves it is worth visiting the ruins of a pottery workshop of the Minoan period. It is also worth seeing the churches of the area, as that of Zoodochos Pigi ("the Source of Life"), the patron saint of Gouves, the cave of Aghia Paraskevi, close to the village Skotino, some 4 kilometres far from Gouves at the Southeast and the Monastery of Panaghia Eleousa at the village of Voros.

Accommodation of any kind and of any category is plenty; you will find hotels, studios, rooms to let and cmpings mostly in Kato Gouves. Food and drink is available in the restaurants, taverns and cafes of both villages. Swimming and sea sport activities is possible at the sandy beaches of Kato Gouves and the area around.

Access from Herkleio is very easy by public buses with frequent service and taxi, as well as by private or rented car and motorbikes
