Panormos beach & resort

On the bus route
Easy access by local bus
12 or 17 km from Skopelos town
Orientation: West, Family friendly

This sheltered summer resort is 17 kilometers away from Skopelos town if you use the local bus service (which operates along the coastal road), but if you have your own transport and drive via the internal road that skirts the island the distance is only 12 kilometers. The large, bowl shaped and wind protected bay consists of a long, fine pebbled beach, lots of small coves and a second internal bay called Blo, all with amazing crystal clear waters.

The beach itself is family friendly, popular and crowded, with water sports, umbrellas, sun beds, and an adequate number of waterside taverns, cafes and other shops which operate during the summer season; facing west it enjoys wonderful sunsets. The rest of the coves are accessible on foot and thus quiet, really idyllic with turquoise water; you may be lucky enough (according to the season) to enjoy one of them all by yourself.

History: The term Panormos is ancient Greek, and was mentioned by Homer, meaning “sheltered harbor” or “sheltered moorage”. Panormos of Skopelos was one of the earliest island “cities” and remains of its ancient walls can still be seen in the area, while the protected inlet, Blo, was its harbour.
