Parga has much to envy on each island. Its amphitheatrical layout, the colorful houses, the stone-paved alleys that climb to the top of the hill are enchanting. The incredible views of the Ionian Sea and the island of Panagia that is reflected in the harbor waters are just so as well. You definitely should pay it a visit during your holidays in Ammoudia.
Parga Beach is one of the beaches that you will adore. It has crystal clear waters and a magnificent view to the small island of Panagia. The island, which is very close to the beach, can be reached either by swimming, if you are good enough, or by boat. On it there is the chapel of the Assumption of the Virgin, which gave the name to the island. In the summer months, wedding mysteries are taking place in the chapel and I can say that the environment and the location for that reason are extremely romantic, somewhat magical. On the islet there is also a small, sandy beach where you can find a drinking water tap. If you want to climb over the hill and get to the back of the island, you will be rewarded by a view of Paxi (if the weather permits it) and a panoramic view of Parga!
If you don’t want to walk too much you may take the land Tour Train from Parga to guide you all over the city. Each tour lasts for 2 hours for a price of 10 euro each tour. One tour goes to the Ali Pasha Castle, while the other goes to the Old Watermill. The train tickets include the entrance ticket to the sights, so it is a good value for your money.
