The town of Parga is located southwest of Epirus, between Preveza and Igoumenitsa. It looks out to the picturesque islands of Paxos and Antipaxos. Parga is one of the most picturesque and cosmopolitan places in north-western Greece. The idyllic landscape of Parga boasts the islet of Panagia, its narrow cobbled streets, its traditional 'Kantounia', the mythical river Acheron and an Oracle, dating back to the age of Homer.
Parga is an exquisite traditional settlement of rare beauty, built to a semicircular plan. Thanks to its beautiful beaches, it is a top destination for summer holidays. Built on the outskirts of the Venetian castle, it is clearly influenced by Ionian architecture.
In its narrow cobbled streets and blossoming neighbourhoods, you will find traditional taverns that add their own colour to the idyllic landscape of the town.
In its calm and warm waters, you can enjoy a swim or your favourite water sports and games.
The Municipality of Parga hosts many different beaches and bays. Within the town of Parga, you will find Krioneri, which faces the islet of Panagia. In the centre, opposite the beach, a small skerry that the locals call Skorda dominates the scenery. Adjacent and to the east of this there is Piso Kryoneri, a small beach also within the settlement of Parga, surrounded by tall cliffs.
To the west of Parga lies Valtos, perhaps most famous beach of the area. A large and well developed tourist beach that overlooks the back side of the castle and the houses in the area of Parga. Three km to the east of the town we find Lichnos beach, which has two small sea caves. The beach is sandy, but has areas with gravel, and is considered one of the most beautiful in Parga.
About 6 km east of Parga, next to the village of Agia Kyriaki, we find Ai Giannakis. Finally, six kilometres to the west of Parga, near the village Agia, we find the beach of Sarakiniko. All the above beaches are accessible by road. There are also a number of beaches that are accessible by sea, such as Agios Sostis, Spartila, Pogonia etc.
