Holidays to Parga offer that chilled-out seaside vibe, along with easy access to the nearby Ionian Islands.

Mainland marvel

Sat on the north-west edge of mainland Greece, Parga Town's perfectly suited to thrill holidaymakers headed for the beach. Colourful painted houses crowd around a picturesque harbour, with forested hills visible in the distance. Water taxis make daily trips to the Ionian Islands too, so you'll have plenty to do.

Beachy keen

Bring your beach-themed daydreams to life – Praga Town's home to more than one. Kryoneri embraces the main area of town, while the slightly smaller Piso Kyoneri's sand-and-pebble stretch sits in the wings. On the other side of the headland is Valtos Beach – a long sweep lined with loungers and parasols.

Daytrips in all directions

Sightseeing around these parts is as diverse as it is interesting. Sticking to the mainland, a scenic 45-minute drive down the coast will take you the Roman ruins of Nicopolis. And beyond the shores, the Ionian Islands are your oyster, with natural beauties like Corfu and Paxos just across the water – you can reach them in two hours by ferry.
