Panormos Holidays

A tranquil coastal village

Panormos holidays are tranquil and traditional – this fishing village on the north coast of Crete is home to an assortment of luxury hotels, beautiful beaches and an elegant harbour. Three coves embrace inviting beaches with calm, crystal-clear water, and there are several boat trips you can take directly from the harbourside. The ancient history of the village can be seen in the remains of a medieval fort and a 6th-century Christian basilica, the largest on the island.

Quiet streets, some of which are too narrow for cars, add to the relaxed atmosphere of this evocative resort. However, if you’d like a little more action, there’s plenty to do in the surrounding area, from hiking in the mountains to vineyard tours and trips to historic Rethymno and Heraklion. Holidays to Panormos offer a glimpse of traditional Greek life, and everyone will enjoy discovering the pretty lanes, craft shops and selection of cafés and tavernas.
