Panormo beaches

panormo beach

In Panormo there are actually two main beaches and a few smaller ones. As the name implies, Panormos is a natural harbor with calm waters. The harbor (Limanaki) beach in front of the village is the port of the area. It is sandy and has clear waters. It is ideal for children, as it is shallow and well protected from winds with piers, where the boats tie up. It is organized with umbrellas, showers, water sports and accommodation facilities around. Adjacent, on the east, there is a smaller sandy unorganized beach, not preferred by swimmers. The second main beach named Limni is located just 200m west of the village. Similarly to the harbor beach, it’s a sandy beach, well protected by a rocky pier.
