Parga, Greece: a charming and colourful village in Epirus

Parga is a charming seaside resort with colourful houses located on the coast of the Epirus region, in western Greece. Built on a hilltop dominated by a 14th century Norman fortress, Parga has a vibrant atmosphere, excellent food and lush beaches. It is close to many of Greece’s interesting sites, which makes it the perfect place to settle and discover the west coast! In this travel guide, I’ll share with you everything there is to know about this magical destination as well as the best things to see and do in Parga, Greece.

This article contains affiliate links, which allows me to earn a small commission on any purchase you make through my links, at no extra cost to you. It helps me keep this blog running, thanks for understanding!

How to get to Parga, Greece

Parga is close to the airports of Preveza, Corfu and Ioannina. The easiest and fastest option is to land in Preveza, the nearest town (65 km). From Preveza airport, take the shuttle bus to the KTEL bus station in Preveza and then the bus from Preveza to Parga (several departures throughout the day). The journey takes about 2 hours, make sure to check the bus timetable before you leave! Taxis are also available directly from Preveza airport to take you to Parga.

The transportation company KTEL connects all major Greek cities by bus, so you can easily reach Parga from anywhere in Greece.

Getting around Parga

To visit the Epirus region and sites such as Sivota or the theatre of Dodona, the best solution is to rent a car. The platform RentalCars compares and offers the best rates in Greece, I am never disappointed with their service! There are also some KTEL buses and day cruises to discover the other beautiful destinations along the coast.

Parga's Bay

Where to stay in Parga?

Parga is a relatively small resort, so it’s easy to get around on foot wherever you stay. Choose your location according to what you plan to do there: do you plan on going swimming every day at the beach in the centre of Parga? Do you prefer to be on the move and discover a new destination in the area every day? Do you want a relatively quiet location with direct access to the beach? Find a strategic location! Here is a selection of hotels and campsites to guide you:

Hotels in Parga, Greece

Paradise Hotel : located in the centre of Parga, the Paradise Hotel offers a superb view of the village and its bay, in addition to a beautiful swimming pool and impeccable service.

Studios Spiros : very well located at the top of Parga’s centre and budget-friendly.

Hotel Maistrali : located just a few steps from Parga’s main beach, the hotel also offers private parking.

Camping in Parga

Camping Valtos : a simple but well-equipped campsite located less than 100 metres from Valtos beach and 15 minutes walk from the centre of Parga.

The promenade along the coast

What to do in Parga, Greece?

Walk through the beautiful streets of parga.

Before you do anything else, explore the pretty streets of Parga! Ideally in the morning or at the end of the day as the village is built on a hill, making it difficult to climb the streets in the summer heat.

parga boat trips

Stroll through the narrow streets, discover the tiny Orthodox churches and look for the most beautiful views of Parga!

Church in Parga Greece

Wander through the shops selling handmade leather shoes, soaps, wooden objects and stop at one of Parga’s bakeries to try some delicious local pastries.

Street and shops in Parga

Visit the Castle of Parga

Perched on the hill, the Castle of Parga dominates the city. Originally built in the 14th century by the Normans, the fortress has been through many changes: it was destroyed in 1537 by the Ottomans and then rebuilt a few decades later by the Venetians, before finally being restored by Ali Pasha in the early 19th century.

Castle of Parga

Today, only ruins remain, but one can imagine the history that took place here by walking through the impressive fortifications. The view of the coastline on either side of Parga from the top of the fortress is magnificent.

Beaches in Parga

With its turquoise sea and beautiful pebbles, the coastline along Parga calls for swimming! There are many beaches and coves along the coast, the best known being Krioneri, Piso Krioneri and Valtos, all three located in Parga itself. These can be reached on foot. Other beaches outside Parga are also worth a visit: Lichnos (4 kilometres away from Parga), Sarakiniko (12 kilometres) and Aï Giannakis (9 kilometres).

Krioneri Beach in Parga

Swim to the islet of Panagia

Just across Krioneri beach is a charming little islet with a church. You can easily swim there and reach it in less than 10 minutes! The view of Parga and its pretty houses from there is worth it.

Panagia islet in Parga

Ali Pasha’s Castle

Located a few kilometres above Parga, right outside the village of Anthoussa, Ali Pasha’s castle was built in 1814 with the aim of bombarding and then capturing Parga. Ali Pasha was then the governor of the Epirus region for the Ottoman Empire.

The view of the Ionian Sea from the castle is one of the most beautiful in the region, with a panorama of the islands of Paxi to the northwest and Lefkada to the southwest.

To get there, take the train of Parga which offers a 2-hour tour including a stop at Anthoussa. Alternatively, you can also hike to Ali Pasha’s Castle, it takes about 1 hour 45 minutes from Parga (around 5 kilometres).

In Anthoussa, stop at the Watermill Museum and walk to the beautiful waterfall.

Rent a boat

To discover the coast around Parga, go on a boat trip! There are many tours to the nearby beaches, I like how when on the sea you can appreciate the coastline from a different perspective. You can book your boat trip directly at the port or online right here.

What we like to do is to rent a small motorboat during one afternoon, so we are free to discover the coast at our own pace (also available directly at the port).

Renting a boat in Parga

The best restaurants, tavernas and bars in Parga

Here is a selection of places I particularly enjoy in Parga:

Med Parga : very nice place to have a drink or dinner at the end of the day, the view over the sea and the sunset is fantastic.

Sakis : ideal to discover traditional Greek dishes! The menu is pretty extensive.

Gyros bank : the best souvlaki & gyros in Parga!

Bacchos Restaurant : a great place for a meal by the sea.

Atrium Bar : a bar overlooking the bay of Piso Krioneri, very pleasant at the end of the day.

Veranda Cocktail Bar : a trendy place to enjoy excellent cocktails in the evening.

Avocado Cocktail Bar : rooftop with a beautiful view over the whole town.

Gyros in Parga

Day trips ideas from Parga

Located only 27 kilometres away from Parga, this pretty resort is famous for its intense blue sea and small islands with emerald green vegetation. Don’t miss the Blue Lagoon and the Bella Vraka beach on the island of Megalo Mourtemeno! The latter can be reached on foot via a shallow sandbank connecting it to the coastline. When in Sivota, rent a boat! It is the best way to discover all the beaches.

Sivota

The islands of Paxos and Antipaxos form the Paxi archipelago. It is a destination south of Corfu very popular for its crystal-clear sea and pretty fishing villages! How to get there: Parga Cruises organises day trips and takes you through the highlights of the archipelago.

When in Parga, you can also go on a day trip to the island of Corfu! The ferry leaves at 8.30 am and returns to Parga at 6.30 pm. The journey is quite long, about 2.5 hours each way. The port there is only a few minutes walk from the old town, but you can also take a taxi at the roundabout when going out of the port. There, you will have enough time to explore Corfu Town, wander through its pretty alleys and on the Liston, browse through its local, charming shops, discover the Old Fortress and maybe even swim at Faliraki, a beach in the heart of Corfu’s old town.

Corfu Town

The Acheron

In Greek mythology, the Acheron is one of the rivers of the Underworld, and a branch of the underground river Styx. It is a place steeped in history, where you can enjoy swimming, walking (feet in the river), kayaking, horse riding… all in a magnificent natural setting. Don’t forget to bring a swimming suit and suitable shoes! The Acheron is 25 kilometres away from Parga and the best way to get there is by car. Alternatively, you can reach it with a boat called the “Lichnos Express”, which you will find in the port of Parga.

Dodoni Sanctuary and Theatre

If you’re a history buff, don’t miss the Dodoni Sanctuary near the town of Ioannina. The journey takes just over an hour (75 kilometres) but is well worth the trip: there is an ancient site dedicated to the cult of Zeus that includes a superb theatre.

The island of Lefkada has some of the most beautiful beaches in the Ionian Sea! The good thing about it? The island is so close to the mainland that it is connected by a bridge, so you can get there by car. The north of the island is 85 kilometres away from Parga, a little less than an hour and a half drive. There are some beautiful beaches in the north of the island, but if you want to discover Porto Katsiki, Lefkada’s most famous beach, it’s an extra hour’s drive.

If you want to know more about this beautiful destination, have a look at this weekend trip to Lefkada !

Porto Katsiki beach, Lefkada

Best time to visit Parga in Greece: what’s the weather like?

Parga is lovely between April (after the Orthodox Easter) and October. Outside this period, you will find most activities closed. The area is still a pleasant place to hike, with mild temperatures in winter. The months of June till September are hot, with temperatures exceeding 30°C. Choose this period if you plan to spend your days at the beach, otherwise earlier or later in the season if you don’t want to be bothered by the heat.

Parga is one of my favourite destinations on Greece’s west coast, we always make a stop there on our way to Corfu. I hope you’ll enjoy it too! Have a great holiday in Greece ☀️.

Visiting Parga Greece? Here Are 15 Best Things to Experience

Parga town is not as lively as some of the other tourist destinations in Greece. However, there are still plenty of things to do and see in the town.

Parga is not a party destination; it is where I came to have a break from that sort of thing. However, the town still through a lot of surprises at me.

The friendly people do have adventurous natures, and the nights can get pretty crazy. The nature exploration, the food scene, and the people make it a positive and rejuvenating experience.

The 15 best things to do in Parga, Greece:

Visit parga old town and its colorful winding streets.

Parga old town

The old town of Parga is a must-see for anyone visiting the town. It’s home to meandering streets and colorful buildings that are sure to enchant visitors.

The old town is on a hill overlooking many hotels, a sandy beach, and exotic waters, so there are plenty of great spots to take in the stunning views. If you’re looking for a charming and picturesque place to explore, visit the old town of Parga.

Try a local dish with a sea view at the town port

The town port in Parga is the perfect spot to enjoy a delicious local dish with a stunning sea view. The port is situated on a hillside, so you can take in the Ionian Sea’s stunning views while eating.

Countless restaurants are serving up both local and international cuisines in Greece. However, seafood is my personal favorite, as it can’t get fresher than it was in Parga.

Even if you are a first-timer to seafood or dislike the idea of eating it, you should give the Calamari and fried Cod a shot in this hill town. There are also plenty of cafes and bakeries where you can enjoy a sweet treat or refreshing cup of coffee.

Enjoy the natural beauty of the lush greenery scenery

parga boat trips

There are plenty of trails and nature walks that allow visitors to explore the natural beauty of Parga.

I took one of these trails near my hotel, leading me to spectacular views around the town.

I later found out that there are a couple of these trails, so make sure to ask the locals for these trails.

Visit ali pasha castle

Ali pasha castle is a popular tourist destination in Parga but to know more about the place, I recommend buying a guided tour or going with a local.

My experience was much more fruitful because I had a local with me to explain some of the site’s significance.

Try scuba diving at the bottom of the Ionian sea

The exotic waters of the sea in Parga are clear and teeming with marine life, so it’s an excellent opportunity to see the underwater world.

There are several diving schools in Parga, so you can find one that suits your needs and experience level.

There are a lot of spots for first-timers at the Ionian islands to dive off from.

Don’t miss the Venetian castle

The Venetian castle in Parga is a beautiful and imposing structure that’s well worth a visit.

The Venetians built the Venetian castle in Parga in the 15th century as part of their defensive system against the Ottomans. The castle is perched on a hill overlooking the town and the sea. It is one of Parga’s most photographed landmarks.

The castle’s interior is home to several interesting exhibits that tell the story of Parga’s history. As a keen admirer of traditional architecture and history, I was thoroughly surprised by this visit.

Experience the orthodox religion at the virgin mary chapel

The chapel is located in the old town of Parga, and it’s home to an interesting exhibition about the history of the orthodox religion.

It gave me a new perspective on how people view religion in this part of the world.

The chapel is also a popular spot for weddings, so if you’re lucky, you might witness a beautiful ceremony while you’re there.

Try hiking at the springs of the Acheron river

parga boat trips

This activity is perhaps the most interesting for nature lovers. The hike is easy to moderate, and it’s well worth seeing the stunning natural landscape.

The hike will take you through a lush green forest, and you’ll get to see the river’s clear waters up close. Make sure to bring plenty of water and snacks, as it can be a long hike.

This is the best-guided jeep tour you can find online. They can pick you up from Parga, Ioannina, or Preveza. 

Visit Parga’s wonderful beaches

parga main beach

Parga is home to some of the most stunning beaches in Greece. From rocky coves to long stretches of sand, you just wish you could swim forever in these turquoise waters.

My personal favorite is Valtos Beach. It’s a bit of a hike to get to Valtos beach, but it’s well worth it.

High cliffs surround Valtos beach, so you feel like you have the whole beach to yourself. Make sure to bring plenty of sunscreens, as there’s no shade on this beach.

The Piso Krioneri beach is also a close second for me in this region.

Visit Parga by night and have dinner at one of the many traditional taverns

parga village

I also enjoyed dining at a traditional tavern in Parga during my stay. The tavern was situated in a quiet corner of the old town, and it was full of locals and tourists alike.

I sampled various dishes, all of which were made with fresh local ingredients. The wine was also excellent, and it went perfectly with the food.

It’s not for everyone, but I hope everyone does it once to experience the local culture.

Check the panoramic views of Parga town from one of the viewpoints

The entire town is very scenic, and the hilly landscape gives you a view from almost anywhere. Make sure to make a lot of memories by clicking iconic photographs here.

Take a neighboring tour to Meteora, the most stunning monastery in Greece

parga boat trips

I highly recommend visiting Meteora. It’s one of the most stunning monasteries in Greece, and it’s well worth a visit.

The monastery is located on a rock formation over 600 meters high and is home to many beautiful churches.

If you’re a fan of traditional houses and architecture, you cannot miss this place, which is a short drive from Parga.

Locals or tour guides can show you all the hidden gems that most tourists don’t get to see in this monastery.

Here is the go-to daily tour I recommend for visiting Meteora from Parga. 

Enjoy the turquoise waters of the beautiful beaches through various water sports

parga boat trips

There are plenty of water sports to enjoy on Parga’s stunning beaches. I personally like kayaking and snorkeling.

The kayaks are located on various beaches (like Valtos beach, Piso Krioneri beach, or Lichnos beach), so getting started is effortless. Get comfortable with the equipment and explore the best parts of Parga.

Snorkeling is also excellent on these beaches. The water is crystal clear, and you can see all sorts of sea life while you’re swimming. The availability of snorkeling equipment for rent (on Krioneri and other beaches) is uncertain, as sometimes you have to bring your own gear.

I recommend (and tried) this kayaking tour —best choice if you want to explore the most secluded areas. 

Choose one of the various boat trips to the secluded beaches

parga boat trips

I have a particular spot for river cruises and boat trips, so whether in a city like Singapore or Paris, I always love this type of getaway. So imagine taking one of the boat trips to the secluded beaches around Parga, where the crowds are less. The boats usually leave from the port in Parga town, taking you to some of the area’s most beautiful and unspoiled beaches. 

The trip lasts around half a day, and you get to stop at three different beaches. The ocean views are all very picturesque, and you can swim, sunbathe, or snorkel if you like.

Rent a small boat to the neighboring islands of Syvota or Paxos

parga boat trips

Renting a small boat to the neighboring islands of Syvota, Paxos or Corfu is also an option if you want to explore more of the stunning Ionian region.

Paxos is a fantastic small island within the Ionian islands group, together with Antipaxos, and Syvota is also similarly located.

Both islands are unique, and the villages are charming.

I personally prefer Paxos and Antipaxos for the picturesque little fish villages and the fantastic turquoise waters, so if you have to choose between Syvota and Paxos-Antipaxos, choose the latter.

Here’s an affordable full-day option for a tour that will take you to Paxos, Antipaxos and Blue Caves. 

Takeaway – Why is Parga the perfect holiday destination?

Visiting Parga?

There are plenty of reasons why Parga is the perfect summer holiday destination. The beautiful beaches (Valtos beach and Krioneri beach are great examples), the stunning scenery (the Venetian castle provides a spectacular view), and the delicious food are all top reasons to explore this charming town.

Apart from all the different attractions, the slow rhythm of the locals’ way of life was very alluring to me as it gave me an enhanced perspective on the seaside lifestyle and how a mingle of Venetian and Greek cultures coexist so stunningly.
