Holidays in Parga

Imagine a tumble of colourful houses set against fragrant olive groves and overlooking an idyllic bay; now see it for real! Holidays to Parga are ideal for families and couples looking to enjoy a quiet slice of Greek hospitality. Surrounded by stunning scenery, this is perfect for those who want to soak up the local sights, such as Ali Pasha Castle and the Vlachena Monastery. However, for dedicated sun-worshippers, Parga is blessed with some Greece’s most beautiful beaches, complete with powder-soft sands and clean, clear, aquamarine waters. While Parga holidays offer a laid-back and tranquil atmosphere, the restaurants and bars along the seafront add a little sparkle as the sun goes down. With plenty to see and do, you can make your holiday to Parga as upbeat or as low-tempo as you want it to be!

9°C - 25°C °C

Start your holiday in Parga with a walk to Ali Pasha castle. This hilltop, Venetian castle is well worth the climb, just for the stunning views across the town. Explorers will also enjoy wandering the cobbled streets of the Old Town, where you can find a variety of shops, bars and tavernas. If you’re visiting during the summer, you’ll find plenty of beaches on which to get some serious bronzing under your belt. Lychnos Beach offers white sand and clear, turquoise waters, while Valtos Beach is the place to go, if you’re a fan of watersports.

If you want to soak up a little of the local history, make sure you pay a visit to Ali Pasha Castle. A Venetian, hilltop castle that overlooks the town, Ali Pasha Castle is an elegant, ragged ruin, with a secret passageway that runs to the sea. While it’s possible to walk there, you’d be better of driving or, better still, catching the ‘road-train’ from the seafront. The road-train has its own guide, giving you the opportunity to learn about the castle and Parga’s rich past. Don’t forget to pack your camera, as the view from the top is breath-taking!

There are plenty of beaches in the resort, from spacious sands that are perfect for families, to secluded coves where couples go to top up their tans in peace and quiet. With gently-shelving shores and shallow, clear waters, this part of the Greek coast is ideal for those travelling with younger children. Valtos Beach is by far the most popular in the area, offering sweeping sands and a variety of white-knuckle water sports. However, if you’d rather retreat somewhere quieter, head for Piso Krioneri, a small, sandy beach, cloaked by pine trees and protected by craggy outcrops.

Not all of the attractions here are above ground! Located next to Lychnos Beach, you’ll find Aphrodite’s Cave, where the legendary Goddess of Love was said to have bathed. The cave is only accessible by boat, which only adds to the sense of adventure. Once inside, you’ll find subterranean lakes filled with still, clear waters. If you want to swim in the wake of the Greek gods, you can get your snorkel out and refresh yourself in one of the pools.
