Parga city beach - Krioneri
Krioneri Beach is located in the center of Parga, from where the main promenade starts with a large number of restaurants, bars and shops. On the promenade you can also find a few travel offices, where you can get information on excursions, sightseeing tours and, of course, choose and book something from the various offers.
Opposite from Krioneri Beach is the island of Panagia (Virgin Mary) and the church with the same name, which is, along with the Venetian fortress, one of the distinctive features of Parga. The island can be reached by boat, kayak/ pedal boat and swimming too.
Krioneri is a sandy-pebbly beach with the gradual entry to the sea and crystal clear water. Water is slightly colder here than on Lihnos and Valtos beach. Hence the name of the beach, Krioneri (gr. Cryo = cold, nero(i) = water).
The largest part of the beach has deck chairs and parasols (extra charge), while the very small part of the beach is available for “free” usage by visitors who have their own beach equipment. Crowd on this beach is a daily occurrence, so you should get up earlier in the morning if you want to find a proper spot here.
If you do not want to spend your day on a crowded place, then Krioneri is not the best choice for you. In that case, we recommend Lichnos Beach as well as the less known beaches such as Sarakiniko and Ai Giannakis, both located nearby Parga.
