Rude, Unfriendly and aggressive Covidiots
Sep 2020
There are many beautiful beaches in and around Parga, Sarakiniko is the one that was the most difficult to reach (by car). It is not that special compared to the others. You can go by bat, or by car. I went by car. It is a one way road that is not build for cars going down and going up hill at the same time. So when it is crowded you will have a problem, not mentioning the lack of parking place. It is a small bay, so it becomes overcrowded quickly. My advice is to skip this place. Go elsewhere where you have more space.

But if you intend to go, I can tell you that at Alex' bar they have first class COVIDIOTS working. They have the most unfriendly, rude, aggressive way of approach I have ever seen in Greece. I 'm half Greek and speak the language. I saw them argue with a couple that just came in. Straight after the couple let their towel on one bed and paid, a spot came free at he first row. They decided to move to this better spot. From this point the staff came in shouting, screaming in Greek. The couple didn't understand and said they were willing to pay extra if there was a difference in price and asked for what caused the huge problem. They simply asked for an explanation. Instead of telling that the policy was that due to Corona once you have chosen a sunbed one is not allowed to change bed anymore, before the couple even could react, there were already 3 to 4 persons in front of them, demanding them to leave, threatening them with a physical fight, even telling them to await them up hill to beat them up as there is only one road. Shouting close to this couple in the face without masks, whilst giving Corona as the excuse to react like that?...What a (COV)IDIOTS!

It made me decide to leave immediately. These people do not care about you. Only thing they want is your money. And being at this spot you can not go anywhere, they know that and surely they now how to threaten you with it.

This aggressive woman as mentioned below, together with probably husband and son, they must be the same. I was there early September 2020.

Beautiful beach but horrible staff
Sep 2020 • Couples
We have been coming to Parga for many years and love all the beaches. Sarakiniko is a beautiful beach, but has the most horrible, racist, aggressive woman collecting money for the sun beds. On one occasion, she complained to us about the Albanians and Romanians on the beach. Another time we witnessed her shouting at a young girl who was getting her photo taken on the beach as the mother dared to sit on the sunbed that she had not paid for. It is a shame as we used to love visiting there for lunch, but now we would spend it on Valtos.

The best experience
Sep 2019
It was the best beach for us, small and not so crowded in September 2019. We rent sun beds from Anemolia Suites and we had great service and food. They made our day so even if it wasn't near our hotel in the last day we went again to them. So if you want peace, great food and services, from all my heart I recommend the beach in front of Anemolia.

Great little sheltered beach, hairy drive down to it!
Sep 2019 • Friends
Had already visited this beach solo by boat the previous week but came by car with friend second time. Steep descent to it and rather scary hair pin bends ( quite a bit of nervous laughter!) but worth it. Small and sheltered beach with sunbeds, but we opted for the bed free area near the boat jetty.It's slightly more sandy and although there's a small dip near the sea's edge, it's easy to get into the water and a gradual drop once in, which gave a very pleasant swim. There's plenty of room on the beach area generally for everyone and has the added advantage of Resalto's Taverna just behind. ( See separate review). The carpark for the beach is very small and was full so we parked in the taverna carpark next-door to Resalto's- ok if you buy a drink ( we had 2 small beers) or get their sunbeds. As in all the beaches in the area I visited, the wind gets up in the middle of the afternoon, so the sea gets a bit choppier. This is more noticeable if you're on the taxi boat back (leaves at 5pm, costs 11 Euro return from Parga), especially the old wooden one. Not helped if the elderly "captain" decides to head out sideways, parallel to the waves!! All in all would recommend. My 2nd choice to Neri beach near Sivota.

Excelent cristal water
Aug 2019 • Family
Nice but small beach very crowded. Sum beads are very close so you dont have privacy. The wather is very clean. Two sun beds and umbrela 10 euro. Drinks and snacks with similar prices like other beaches around. Good place to visite but very small parking. Very big problem is where to park your car becouse the space is high uphill and narrow for two cars to cross

Nice beach, but AVOID Alex Bar
Sep 2019 • Family
Excellent scenery, clean water, great place ... but avoid Alex Bar. After they take your money for the umbrellas they watch you not to buy drinks from the neighboring bar and as retaliation (we did it by mistake, honestly since they are so close to each other) we were banned to use their toilet, even though we paid 8 euros per the umbrellas.

nice beach but...
Aug 2019
The beach is over-hyped. As a result, too many cars and people in this small area. Parking is awful (try before 11am or after 6pm), so is finding a sunbed/umbrella. Water and scenery not as special compared to the area beaches. Not a must go.

Amazing beach
Aug 2019 • Family
For olny special people.

We visited this stylish hotel and suites from 10-14/08/19 with my family and friends.

The last kilometer to the beach is a bit difficult (you have to be carefull because the road is too narrow for 2 cars and sharp turns).

Not very good signal for the cell phones (very good reason to relax from the busy routine.

I recommend this hotel 100%.
