About Panormos

The small seaside village of Panormos lies between Heraklion and Rethymnon on the north coast of Crete.

Panormos is well-suited to families as the swimming is safe at the sand and pebble beaches. There is a good selection of shops, a butcher, a baker, cafes and traditional tavernas where you can sample the local cuisine at reasonable prices.

The countryside around the village attracts keen walkers.  If you have a hire car you may wish to visit the Monasteries of Arkadi and Preveli, and the world famous Minoan Palace of Knossos. Alternatively there is a decent bus service to Rethymnon and Heraklion. Otherwise you may wish to explore the wonders of the Samaria Gorge, or simply take time to visit the mountain villages, for example the village of Margarites where traditional pottery and wood carvings are still being produced.
