Set in Greece’s north-western Preveza region, sandwiched between mountains and a sweeping bay, Parga is one of those seaside destinations you see on postcards. Colourful boats bob in the harbours, tavernas spill out onto cobbled streets, and whitewashed houses cling to the steep hillsides. It’s no wonder this place is as popular with the Greeks as it is with foreign holidaymakers.
Days in Parga Town tend to be take-it-easy affairs, with eating and shopping topping the list of popular pastimes. Stroll through the narrow alleyways and you’ll stumble upon postage stamp-sized stores, family-run meze bars and crumbling old churches. If you’re after the classic combination of sea and sand, meanwhile, Parga Town has its own little beach, just 5 minutes from the harbour. And the golden shores of Valtos Beach are just a short taxi boat ride away.
Next door to Parga Town is the quiet resort of Lichnos. Its main attraction is its beach – it’s a sweep of sand that’s backed by pines and stretches out for almost a kilometre. The resort itself is pretty low-key, with just a handful of tavernas and a few traditional cafés and bars.
Head into the surrounding areas and you’ll find plenty to explore. The Vikos National Park is top hiking territory, while the islands of Corfu, Paxos and Antipaxos are an easy ferry ride away. Unspoilt Albania is within day-tripping distance, too.
