On the north side of the island and facing east onto Panormos Bay is the long and beautiful Panormos Beach. Two restaurants one hotel and some rooms to rent serve this otherwise remote area, reachable only by private vehicle or taxi. Fortunately, the fact that this is not an organized beach (no umbrellas or sun beds) discourages wanna-be socialites Nude bathing tolerant, this beach because of its location is best suited during periods of southerly wind.

PANORMOS beach, named after the bay itself and the small cove faces eastwards and so it enjoys a little more shelter from the winds that can scour the north facing sands. It has a fine long stretch of white sand and a small taverna that opens in the summer. There are good walks over the surrounding countryside though, with no trees.
