The village of Panormos or Panormo and the beaches of Panormos in Crete

Nederlands map of Crete Panormos is a small fishing village and beach resort on the north coast of Crete some 22 kilometers east of Rethimnon. In Roman times Panormos was a port and had the name of Axos. Still little developed it is slowly becoming a tourist resort of its own in, but it still retains some of its old village character and it is a nice place to wander around for a bit and spend some time on the beach or in one of the many fish taverns. Panomos

While we were there (2003) we saw a big church (still in concrete) being constructed, likely to attract more visitors in the future (in 2008 it was finished but still in concrete, so progress is slow). There are three small beaches in Panormos. One beach is in the harbour, which is topped by a nice church on a steep rock. It's a sand beach. Two others beaches are on the other side of the village. One of them has many umbrellas on it, the other small beach is a little bit less commercial. This may change soon. The beaches at Panormos are shallow and so they are suitable for small children. As you walk from one part of the village to the other there are nice views over the sea and the rocks.

Panormos is cosy though with plenty of shops for your daily needs, mini-markets and a bakery. Behind the village are the remains of the the Agia Sophia Basilica which dates from the 6th century. Overlooking the beach and close to the beautiful Panormos church with its wall paintings are the remains of the Milopotamos Castle (from the times of Genova) of which not much is left. In the small and quiet cobbled streets the old houses blend in with the new. There are flowers in pots in front of the houses and because Panormos is set away a little bit from the national road there is no passing traffic and you will not see so many cars in the village. Along the beach and in the streets you have a good choice for tavernas and small cafés.

The surrounding area of Panormos is nice for making walks into the countryside. Panormos also has a regular bus service to Rethimnon and to the capital Heraklion. The bus ride from Heraklion to Panormos takes about 50 to 60 minutes and to Rethimnon it takes a little over half an hour. If you want to escape the overcrowded places like Chersonissos and Malia and if you prefer authentic Greek life and old style Greek buildings, yet you still want some life in the evening and have a choice of a few nice bars, than Panormos may be a good option for you. It is still pretty authentic and it has lots of charming picturesque streets, good restaurants (especially sea food) and different beaches to choose from. It's peaceful and quiet in its' own way and there is not much traffic. Still there are things to do and there are things to have a look at. As far as I am concerned one of the nicer villages on the north coast of Crete. There is nothing really bad to be said about Panormos.
