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.
