Offering brochure-worthy views and a laidback vibe, Panormos holidays deliver a winning combo of relaxing days and sleepy Greek charm.


Even by the usual island-life standards, Panormos in Skopelos is a very chilled affair. Days on this North Aegean resort in Greece tend to revolve around lazing on a sunlounger and exploring hidden coves. As for evenings, candlelit dinners and a glass or two of local wine are never a bad idea.

Brightly coloured bay

Panormos’ sand-and-pebble beach is a paradise of lush green trees arcing around a half-moon bay of turquoise shoreline. The tucked-away coves and jaw-dropping sunsets amp up the appeal, while nearby cafés keep parasols at the ready for when you need a drink and some shade.

Movie magic

This region doesn't just look like a movie set – it is one. Fans of Mamma Mia! can make the half-an-hour drive to Agios Ioannis church – a key location in the smash-hit musical. It’s perched on a steep hilltop, so wear comfy shoes if you're going to make the climb.
