  • Notes:
    Lichnos beach is within driving distance from Parga (about 10 minutes). There are day cruises from Parga that include Lichnos in their stops, but you can easily drive a rental moped to Lichnos from Parga. If you do rent a moped, drive carefully, and mind the hair raising descent to Lichnos from the main road. Keep your gear low and use your breaks wisely.

    If you do go to Lichnos, rent a pattle boat or a kayak and explore the cave on the southern end of the beach.

    had under the olive trees.

RATING SCALE

5 = the sea water was some the best for swimming. We would go way out of our way to swim there again
4 = sea water was excellent and inviting for swimming. We would go out of our way to swim there again
3 = very nice and clean sea. We would go swimming there again if we were in the area
2 = nice sea, we had a nice swim but we did not notice anything special about the water
1 = the sea water was not very inviting at the time we visited. We did more sunbathing than swimming
0 = the water did not seem suitable for swimming

Note that these are our simple (and unscientific) observations based on our subjective experience during our visit. We enjoy the water when it is crystal clear, and cool instead of warm. We don' like visible floating particles of any kind or algae settled on the beach.
