Parrega (West Frisian: Parregea) is a village in the municipality Súdwest-Fryslân in the province of Friesland, the Netherlands. It had a population of around 500 citizens on 1 January 2009. The village is divided by a canal, and the only bridge, in the centre connects the two parts.
Parrega was a fishing village, located east of the former Parregaaster Lake, which was reclaimed in 1879. Together with the nearby village of Hieslum it has a more-than-80-year-old Community Society and a 30-year-old village magazine (De Pinfisker).
