lovely town Parga with its 2500 inhabitants is situated on the north west coast
of Greece, in an idyllic bay on the foot of the Epirus Mountains. It is one of
the most beautiful towns in Greece. In spring a lot of wild flowers bloom and
the landscape stays all summer long nice and green. Behind the coast with lots
of bays and long sandy beaches are olive groves and pine woods. High above Parga
are the ruins of a venetian castle situated, from up there you have a gorgeous
view over the coast with its numerous islands and bays for bathing, swimming and
The most known island is the "Panagia-Island" the "Virgin Mary-Island"
which is just outside the harbour, to its honour every year on the 15th of August
Parga celebrates a big town festival with music and huge fire works A bit further
away you can also make out the islands Paxi, Antipaxi and the south peak of Corfu.
Right behind the harbour the promenade is situated with a lot of taverns where
typical greek dishes and wine are served. From there you can watch the livelihood
of the harbour, where little fishing boats, taxi boats and sometimes big excursion
boats from Corfu anchor.
harbour and promenade there is an impressive labyrinth of small alleys and romantic
corners, where you can rummage for souvenirs in little shops or maybe light a
candle in one of the small chapels. Cafes and bars invite to remain for a while,
to sit down and relax.
day life in Parga is slow but in the afternoon the town awakes and its inhabitants
and guests surrender round the lovely town. There are discotheques, bars and cafes
and live music - something for everybody.
touristic life in Parga in daytime takes mostly place on the beaches. You have
the choice between the town beach Kryoneri, or the little bay behind it, the Piso
Kryoneri Beach, the idyllic and long Valtos Beach on the other side of Parga with
clear view to the castle, or Lichnos Beach which is just 2 km outside of Parga.
Beach is an ideal paradise for children, there is a wide range of watersport possibilities,
e.g. wind surfing or parashoot. You can reach all the beaches in Parga easily
by watertaxi, by foot or by car. The watertaxis leave on a regular basis to the
different beaches or drop you off on the way on one of the lonely little bays
and beaches you pass.
There is also a wide range of organised trips and excursions to all the places
of interest in Epirus. But if you want to explore yourself you can rent a car
or you travel here with your own vehicle. In Igoumenitsa, 45 km north or Parga,
there is the big new ferry boat harbour and all the ferries from Italy (from Venice,
Ancona and Brindisi) stop here.
comfortable, (homely,cosy) but also active, Parga is a holiday resort, that tries
to keep its originality and hospitality and that suits really every age group.
Here you won't find mass tourism, huge hotel complexes, just little accommodations,
hotels and pensions owned by greek families who make an effort to give you the
best holiday possible.
