To reach Panormos beach you should keep driving after the junction of Saint John, following the signs. It is an approximately 45-minute drive from Chora with several twists along the way (dirt road) which require your full attention. It is a wild pebbly beach with no spot of tualshading. Thus, make sure you have made the necessary arrangements! The beach is protected by the unstable weather conditions, as it lies in the safety of a large bay.
