Silt up bay
I found that this bay, not far from Parga was worth a photo (sorry, I have not written down the name of that place). If you enlarge it, you ill see clearly that the bay has been progressively silted up. The figure of the following shores can be clearly seen. That would fit very well for a geography class.
Cheap and cheerful
Very small taverna that advertises great views, however I suspect this was when they used to use the roof terrace which wasn’t in use when we were there despite them being very busy. Tables and chairs literally in the street. We had to wait, with free ouzo, for a table, for average but cheap food.
Pier in Parga
In Parga, the pier is very short and always busy. Fishermen boats bring their small load of fishes for the restaurants. Tourist boats offer small cruises along the coast. Small ferries sailing from Igoumenitsa to Preveza disturb the bay several times a day in the summer. Thus, we moored in Valthou bay and at night walked to Parga city for dinner.
Charmed by Parga
"Small town between the sea and the mountains"
Parga is a small town between the bigger cities Preveza and Igomenitsa on the western edge of the Greek mainland. The town slopes down to the sea and ends in a rocky sea front with quays and tavernas framed by a Venetian kastro on one side and a beautiful church on one of the islets on the other. The town has a certain sleepy and calm mood that makes it nice to visit for families and the older crowd. The town is big enough for you to come here empty-handed and obtain all your supplies here whether you are hitting the beach or are a self-contained adventurer.
"Calm and quiet - perfect relaxation"
Parga itself doesn't have that much to show for itself, apart from nice buildings, the kastro, the church and the harbour promenade. There is one main beach and some nicer, big ones some distance away, but these "commercial" beaches are outsmarted by tiny sandy inlets and beaches on the rough coast north of Parga. Small boats will take you there in the morning and bring you back to Parga harbour in the afternoon. You can take day excursions away from Parga to take in more touristy stuff/sightseeing - the mountains and the city of Ioannina, some monasteries, the islands Paxi and Antipaxi just off the coast south of Korfu, and the coastal areas further south of Parga with a gentler (boring?) landscape and long beaches. Parga itself remains a quiet place. But many are attracted to this place perhaps just becauase of the un-pretentiousness and calm. Me, among them...
