Crete is a wonderful island with a lot of things to do and to experience. A very interesting and unwinding place is Gournes. It is part of the largest coastal area in Crete, stretching from Kokkini Hani to Malia. Gournes is located between Kokkini Hani and Gouves and therefore within a walking distance along the beautiful beach.
Gournes was once a small fishing village and is the newcomer on Crete’s nothern coast. It has a laid-back vibe and lures you to stay hours and hours on the sandy beaches enjoying the charming waterfront and the sun.
With the deal that I have found on thomson.co.uk you will be able to spend your family holiday or your holidays with 3 of your friends in the excellent 3 star Golden Bay Apartments (great 90% on TripAdvisor + Certificate of Excellence) for only £284 per person based on 4 adults sharing. And best about it: it’s during the summer hols! So don’t forget your sun cream and your swimming things and enjoy Crete in August with around 29°C.
Your hotel will provide you many opportunities to refresh yourself. There’s for example the lush outdoor swimming pool with the pool bar at the one end, where you can get some snacks and drinks during the day. Enjoy in the evenings at the taverna which comes with an open-air dining terrace and has wonderful views over the sea. Within a stone’s throw you will be able to lay on the beach, because it’s only 150 metres from your hotel.
If you want to see more then visit Hersonissos which is only 20 minutes away by bus. The city provides you many interesting cultural tours and numerous historical monuments and sites. Enjoy your summer hols! :)
