The Bay of Panos (named after the ancient god Pan) is located 15 kilometres southwest of Chora, in a landscape dense with pine trees. The area is home to the walls of the ancient acropolis of the island which has been preserved in very good condition. From the acropolis a path leading to the cave of Panos (Pan), where in ancient times rites were performed to worship the god.
The beach of Panormos is amongst the most beautiful on the island of Skopelos. To get there to see the trees reach the shore, one has to cross a beautiful little fjord. At the entrance of the bay we find two islands. The largest of the two, Dassia is a small exotic paradise, with golden sand, crystal blue waters and pine trees that reach out to touch the sea.
Moreover, after Panormos Bay and if you swim to the right, you will see adrines, small wonderful beaches. According to the myth, they took their name from Adrina, a woman who was a pirate and wanted to conquer the place. Her men, though, did not manage to beat Skopelitians and once Adrina was informed about it, fell into the sea and was drown.
At Panormos there are nice accommodations with great views of the bay, and taverns, where you can enjoy the local cuisine.
