Beaches nearby Parga
Vrachos-Loutsa beach is just over 25km away from Parga. Vrachos and Loutsa are actually the same beach, just by the name Loutsa we have in mind the right, northern part of the beach, toward Parga, and by Vrachos the left, southern part of the beach, towards Preveza. The beach is exactly 3km long, and in some parts it is wide slightly more than 50m. The beach with its crystal clear sea and green landscape is the perfect place for the fans of real vacation and relaxation next to the waves without loud music and big crowds.
According to many, it is one of the most beautiful sandy beaches on the Ionian coast, famous for its imposing length, but also a tiny sand that not many beaches can boast about in this part.

Ai Giannakis (Agios Ioannis) is a small and beautifully tucked cove at 9km from Parga. It is recognizable for the emerald green color due to its rich nature in the hinterland. Ai Giannakis is a real little paradise for all devotees of little more isolated beaches. On the beach there is a canteen offering drinks and food and several seating sets in the shade. The sea is beautiful, crystal clear and perfect for diving. The coast has a large pebble, so does the seafloor, so we recommend you to put on sea sandals.
Beach Lihnos (Lichnos) is located 4km southeast of Parga. On the beach there is no crowd that is characteristic for the city beach in Parga and Valtos, so Lichnos is a good alternative for a peaceful day. The beach is pebbly, with several taverns, a camp and a hotel along the beach. The depth is gradual, but there are no long shallows, so the depth begins relatively close from the shore.
Valtos Beach is on a 15-minute walk from Parga. To get to it you need to climb the hill on which there is the Venetian fortress, and then go downhill to the beach. This walk can be tiring if you are not in good shape or if it is too hot, so if you do not fancy such a walk, you can take a taxi boat to this beach. The price in one direction is 2e per person. Taxi boats go every half hour from 10:00 to 23:30 when the last one returns from the beach. If you like to walk, we recommend that you walk on this beach, because on the way you can visit the fortress with a beautiful view of Parga, as well as of the Valtos beach.
The beach is a little over a kilometer long and is quite wide, especially in its central part. It is pebbly, and at the very entrance to the water there are small stones, after which sand begins. The sand is smaller on the left side of the beach. The sea is deep after some 10 steps, so attention should be paid to children because there are no long shallows.

A light and somewhat strenuous ride pays off because Sarakiniko is truly a beautiful beach. You can reach it by boat or by a speedboat from Parga. The price is 11 € in both directions per person, whether you are coming by boat or speedboat. The slow boat ride lasts 20-30 minutes, and the speedboat 10-15 minutes.
