Ormos Panagias is a coastal holiday destination mostly known for its sandy "Blue Flag" beach that locals call it the "Copacabana of Greece" due to its length and its exotic landscape.
There is a picturesque harbor in Ormos where Excursion boats start from here making trips to the eastern part of Sithonia and to Aghion Oros (Mount Athos). Also, here you can rent a boat to visit the islands right across Vourvourou. At the harbor, you can find small resorts, a few renting studios, tavernas, bars and cafes.
The village took its name in the honor of the great Byzantine church of the region.
Worth it to see:
- The Byzantine Temple dedicated to Virgin Mary, which was destroyed and rebuilt for several times.
✓ Don’t miss it!
- Daily cruises to Mount Athos depart from the port of the village.
- The fresh fish market located right at the dock and sells the day’s catch.
- July's full moon festival, a 3-day free annual event where you can enjoy great live concerts under the moonlight.
