The name of this area means beach. Therefore, there are towels, blankets or parasols. Moreover, there are many cafés and many vendors selling home-made cones. Which are delicious, by the way. Also note interesting mailboxes, frescoes on house walls, or the wharf. You may also see turtle breeding facility and boats anchored along the seafront.

Apart from hotels there is also an Orthodox church dedicated to martyr Agia Paraskevi who allegedly treated blindness. The church is open also at night.

Paralia is a recreation resort. But you can add to your stay by making trips to the surrounding areas. For instance, visit the former capital of the prefecture, or go to  the mountain town of Litochoro, the nearby village of Kallithea, or Dion archeological excavation site.
