Panormo is a romantic, picturesque, seaside village developed in a lovely small bay which is located 22 km east from Rethymnon. It still has the air of a fishing, quiet village with a few traditional tavernas and cafe-bars and a couple of good sandy beaches in the village.
We strongly recommend Panormo for couples or families looking for tranquility and hospitality far from the overdeveloped villages of north Crete.
The ancient town of Panormo flourised here from 1st to the 9th century AD when it was destroyed by the Saracens. There is a post office, ATM machine and a new cultural centre provided in the village of Panormo. A tourist mini-train leaves from the main street for the nearby Melidoni Cave and the pottery village of Margarites.
