Ormos Panormou is an anchorage in Naxos.

Naxos is a charter location in Cyclades, a yacht charter area in Greece.

The anchorages on Naxos:

Overview

Ormos Panormou lies on the SE tip of the island of Naxos, south of Moutsouna. At more than 50km from the main town, it’s perhaps not surprising that here you will find one of the most uncrowded beaches on the island. That makes it a perfect location when you want to escape the maddening crowds who flock to the more popular and easy-to-reach beaches during the height of the tourist season. 

Navigation

Care is needed when approaching Ifalos Dilos, an isolated reef off the coast could present a hazard, so it is better to approach from the East, towards Ak. Panormous. The sand and weed bottom, at 3m-5m, offers good holding, however, in the Meltemi season, it’s advisable to lay a second anchor in case of severe gusts.

In the event of strong northerlies, it’s advisable to move towards the long secluded beach to the south.  Although it’s uncharted, the bottom is mainly sand with some rocky ledges. Drop a second anchor in the sand and weeds, or even ashore.

General Information

Panormous Beach is one of the quietest beaches in Naxos. It is located approximately 53 kilometers away from Naxos Town which makes it a secluded, untouched, and beautiful place to be. Travelers have to first reach Apeiranthos Village and then carry forward their journey to Ormos Panormou.

Beaches

The beach here is not highly developed. There are no tourist facilities and no sunbeds for hire. You will need to bring your umbrellas or take advantage of the few trees when you need some shade. The beach is not very large, and there is a liberating feeling of being far away from civilization. The clear sea waters are warm most of the year.

Places of Interest

Rhina Caves 

One highlight of Panormou beach is a trip to the Rhina (aka Rina) Caves with the almost-legendary Captain Yiannis, in his traditional boat. He takes small groups to enter the cave, so you can dive from above and generally enjoy a marvellous and unexpected experience in this otherwise hidden gem.  At the time of writing, the cost was reasonable at about 10 euros per person, so it is an activity which you must do.

Chimarros Tower

This marvellous example of ancient engineering is found off-road, near the road to Kalandos. Evidence of a 2000-year-old settlement is still visible, including an ancient olive press. The site is still not developed, so at the time of writing, you can wander around free of charge. If Greek history is your passion, then this is a hidden gem that is well worth the effort of getting there.
