Parga is very picturesque with a very mild climate. The seas are crystal clear and there are many sandy beaches along the coast. It is in the area of Epirus which is in North West Greece and can be located by first finding Corfu or Paxos and following the mainland coast opposite to them.
Parga has a beautiful harbour with many colourful boats which are used for daytrips or to take visitors to small secluded beaches or maybe to Valtos or Lichnos which are the popular local beaches. In the bay is the Island of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
The main beach is called Valtos and can be reached either by water taxi or by the much more interesting way of walking.
Even though the beach is very large and wide, it gets very crowded in high season (July and August). Even so, you can always find plenty of space to spread out on the south end near the castle, and at the other end to the north. As you approach the beach from the road, the beach to your right is flanked by bars and you can head that way if you prefer more "mingling", beach games, and music. If you want more peace and quiet, head to your left toward the castle, and stay in the middle for the sun beds and parasols.
