Panormo is a small traditional Cretan fishing village with narrow cobbled streets, shops and an excellent choice of tavernas. It lies above the harbor and overlooks three beautiful little coves with lovely sandy beaches for sunbathing and calm crystal clear waters for swimming. It is the ideal place to relax and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere, go for long walks or just sit at the cafe/taverna of Captain’s House overlooking the harbor and enjoy the beautiful view and watch the world go by.

Panormo is an excellent geographical point to use as a base for excursions all over Crete. It is in the centre of the island, 56km wet of Heraklion 22 km east of Rethymno. There is a regular bus service to Rethymno (on average every 20 minutes) and to Chania and to Heraklion.
