Mykonos Areas | Panormos
Panormos beach in Mykonos is famous for its pristine, transparent waters, which are not as cold as on other beaches of the island! It is located at the northernmost point of Mykonos, just before Agios Sostis. Here you can play beach volleyball for hours or engage in various other water sports.
Panormos Beach is well organized, although it does not have sunbeds but only umbrellas. In the two restaurants and beach bars located on the beach, you can order your coffee, drink or dinner with the waves crashing at your feet. You can only get to Panormos by private vehicle, so you won't see many tourists here. Also, the picturesque village of Panormos offers endless opportunities for shopping, sightseeing and delicious food (try the orphan stew and you'll be...licking your fingers!).
The area was the first inhabited neighborhood on the island, while the excavations brought to light a prehistoric settlement from the Paleolithic era, specifically 5,000 BC. A plethora of unique hotels and villas located on the beach and in the village are available to meet the needs of every traveler. Whether you're looking for a romantic getaway, or intense nightlife, you'll feel right at home in Panormos.
Less crowded than the other beaches of Mykonos, it allows visitors to enjoy the surrounding natural beauty in peace, while the narrow streets of the rustic village give you the opportunity to look back in time and endless opportunities to experience authentic Greek culture and taste Mediterranean cuisine. With umbrellas dotting the soft sand, yellow sunlight waking you up every morning and the soft sounds of calm waters lulling you sweetly at night, it's easy to see why Panormos has become a world-class holiday destination.
