Valtos beach is a 15-minute walk from Parga. In order to reach it, you should climb the hill where the Venetian fortress is, and from there you can go downhill to the beach. This walk can be exhausting if you are not in a good shape or if it’s too hot outside, and if you think that this walk won’t be good for you, you can take a taxi boat to drive you to the beach. Taxi boats depart every half an hour from 10:00-23:30, when the last boat returns from the beach. If you like to walk, we recommend that you go to this beach by foot, because along the way you can visit the fortress which has beautiful view of Parga and the Valtos beach.
Valtos beach is more than 1km long and it’s quite wide, especially in the middle. It is gravelly, but when you enter the water there are tiny pebbles and after those the ground is sandy. The sand is finer on the left side of the beach.
The area has been developed for tourism, with activities such as jet skiing, banana boat rides, pedalo boat rides, and places to rent canoes to explore the Ionian Sea. There are also multiple cafes and taverns scattered around the beach that are open all day, as well as small hotels and rooms along the coast that people can rent.
It can be seen from the peak of a castle hill.
