Paranga is located right by Acrogiali hotel. We enjoyed laying out and ordering drinks from the bar. the sand is nice and not rocky like other Greek Beaches. Water is clear blue and sand is powdery white.

We had a lovely time there. Enough space for all kind of people and yet all that making you feel comfortable. And to ensure you stay longer, just go to the tavern and get a god food. Not the best of the island but good enough for lunch

The waiters people are caught and deceived. Cheat good people in the company of the bad faith of the manager and the cashier and waiters.

Great for swimming. The hostel near by has a pool overlooking the beach, you have to spend 5 euros to hang out and use the chairs and pool but we enjoyed it.
