If you want to spend your holiday on a calm place suffused with the atmosphere of a genuine Cretan village, then the Panormos resort could be the right option for you. Panormos is originally a small fishing village with a port and a beautiful sandy beach where you can find both fully equipped places but also places providing enough privacy where you can relax alone.
What to do in Panormos
In Panormos you can find peace and the original atmosphere almost everywhere. There are very few little hotels and pensions, and not so long ago, there were only two minimarkets with groceries, a bakery and a few tavernas offering the local delicacies.
For those who like to spend their holiday actively and like to visit both natural places of interest and historical sites, Panormos is an ideal point of departure. In the western direction, you will find the beautiful historic town of Rethymno, when driving to the east, you will arrive at the Cretan capital, Heraklion. Those who like to travel more can make a very interesting tour of Panormos - Heraklion - Gortys - Festos - Rethymno - Panormos. The tour passes through the highest mountains on Crete, Psiloritis, and you can visit the most significant historical sites on the island.
