Mother Nature’s secret
It’s like Mother Nature wanted to keep Parga Town, on Greece’s northwest coast, all to herself. The pretty coastal town is wrapped in pine-clad mountains. Behind the harbour lies a picture-postcard jumble of terracotta-roofed houses. And you’ve got little islands dotted around the bay, including Panagia, which is capped with a whitewashed chapel.
A big part of Parga Town’s appeal is its beaches. There’s Kryoneri, the busy town beach that faces Panagia Island. And right next door is its little sibling, Piso Kryoneri – a cove with a sand and pebble beach. Just over the headland is Valtos, a long sweep of sand with family credentials thanks to its safe swimming, tavernas and roll call of watersports.
In Parga Town, you’re only ever a few minutes away from the harbour. It ripples with life during the day, as little boats ferry in and out. If you dive into the labyrinth of streets behind the harbour, you’ll stumble on jewellery makers that are known throughout Greece. And at night the waterfront cranks things up a notch, as music bars, tavernas and kafenios, or coffee shops, fill up with a cosmopolitan mix of holidaymakers.
Close to Hades’ Gate
A 30-minute drive from Parga Town is the Acheron River, one of the most famous landmarks of the ancient world. It’s where the souls of the dead were believed to pass on their way to Hades, or the underworld. Along its banks you can visit the 5,000-year-old Necromanteion, a spooky temple where priests communicated with the dead.
