Lichnos beach is located 4km southeast from Parga. The beach is not so crowded like local beaches in Parga and Valtos are. Therefore, the Lichnos beach is a good alternative to spend a peaceful day. Lichnos is a pebbly beach, with few taverns, a campsite, and a hotel by the beach. The depth is gradual, but there is no long shoal, so the depth starts just a few meters from the coast. The right side of the beach is more sandy, while the left side is with slightly bigger pebbles, so the beach sandals are necessary. There is a natural shade near the camp, and the sea is always clear and transparent.
The beach is equipped with sunbeds and umbrellas, and showers and toilets are located within cafes and restaurants. Visitors can also enjoy beach volley and water sports. The set of two sunbeds and one umbrella costs 6e, and the sunbeds in the restaurant Coralli are free for their guests. In front of the luxurious hotel the set costs about 30e, because the sunbeds and umbrellas are of better quality. There is enough space for all visitors with their own equipment. Within the camp there is a mini-market. Both sides of the beach are quiet and ideal for people who don’t like crowded beaches.
Parking exists within the taverns and it’s free for their guests. There is no free parking space for the visitors who are not the guests of the taverns, so we recommend you to come here by a taxi boat or by regular taxi. First taxi boat to the beach departs from Parga at 10am, and departures are being performed every 30 minutes. The last taxi boat departs from the beach at 6pm. The one-way ticket price is 4,5e and the price of regular taxi is 8e regardless of how many persons there are. The owners of the taverns are willing to call a taxi for you.
You could also come to the beach by walking a goat path through the olive groves, and it will take you about an hour to reach it. A walk could be very exhausting in the sun, especially on the way back when rise is higher. It is necessary to bring water with you, if you decide to visit the Lichnos beach this way. To the surprise of many, halfway there is a small tavern with a pleasant, natural atmosphere and the path leads along the small church, which you can visit. It is better to take a taxi or a taxi boat on your way back.
The beach is located in the foothill and the road is winding.
