Panormo, a serene tourist resort in Rethymnon, has greatly developed in recent years, yet without having lost its traditional splendor at all. The quaintness of the village, its beautiful sandy beaches and the easy access via the North Road Axis of Crete (NRAC) have been the main factors for this.
Built around a well-protected harbor, Panormo was an important town in the area for many years. Nowadays, it is an exceptionally elegant settlement with neoclassical buildings, refined tourist development and hospitable inhabitants. About 800m away from the village, there is a lighthouse, from the top of which the visitor can enjoy the sunset that is considered unique.
All businesses operate in a quality way, respecting the environment, the serenity and the special architectural character of the settlement. The large port can also accommodate sailing boats and yachts, while visitors can enjoy swimming and water sports at the beautiful beaches of the village. They can also taste lots of traditional dishes and fresh fish at the taverns and restaurants of the area.
