Gouves June2014 MUST SEE places

Staying at ANDREAS APARTMENTS June 2014. Any advice for MUST SEE places while I'm there? Happy to use local buses or boats but HATE tour operator organised trips! Best tips for really authentic greek food? Best place for solo traveller to quench her thirst with a pint of draught cider and a bit of craic of an evening? Also, is it cheaper to buy cigarettes to take home in the resort or at Heraklion Airport Duty Free? Do they sell Royals in Duty Free or in the resort?

So many questions! And I know I'll have a ball when I get there, whatever the answers!

Lots of info on these threads - Andreas is very near Marie-Kelly and the Island hotel, in the eastern part of Gouves:

Bear in mind that in terms of getting your bearings, Andreas is within 100m of the Island hotel.

BTW, the best bus stop from Andreas is bus stop 15. Go up the street behind the Island hotel right by Skorpios about 50m from Andreas, then when you get to the big main road at the top by the Rainbow, turn left, walk along the slip road at the side and it's about 300m from there.

There has been a small bus running 4 times a day from the bus stop on the front right near the junction in front of the Island, through Gouves, the old USAF base, Cretaquarium and into Heraklion, check out if it's still running when you go. Times of buses are always posted on all the bus stops.

Lots of trips possible by bus including Heraklion, Knossos, Hersonissos, Stalis, Malia, Agios Nikolaos, Elounda, Spinalonga etc etc..

I'm not a smoker, but I believe prices are the same everywhere.

Anything else, just ask! I'm off out now but will be back tonight.
