Sivota, Lefkada: One of the most beautiful bays in Lefkada, located 32 km south of the Lefkada town. The settlement lies around a blue crystalline cove amidst verdant hills and lush green forests overlooking the Ionian Sea. The lovely port of the village provides a safe shelter for private yachts and quite close is also the main beach.
Sivota Village – Holidays in Lefkada
Today probably the most popular tourist resort in Lefkada. It is fairly quiet during the day and much more lively at night. The village is a much preferred destination for the yacht owners. Sivota hosts some gorgeous beaches with amazing waters and white sand, extremely famous for their breathtaking beauty and the wild background. Most of them though are accessed by boat. Along the small port of Sivota you will find some nice fish taverns and restaurants.
Sivota is a picturesque fishing port located in south-east Lefkas and about 33 kilometres from Lefkas Town. The village is at the head of a deep bay and Sivota well protected by long sweep of hills that curve around the cove to create a small entrance into the Ionian Sea. Sivota is a big favourite with the yachting crowd, thanks to its sheltered anchorage.
The resort is usually very quiet during daylight hours but livens up at night-time when the boats tie up.
Sivota has stone quays on three sides of the harbour and a new pontoon to the south-east so there is no shortage of berths for the yacht flotillas that sail in each evening.
Sivota is also home to sailing holiday companies and so the bay gets busier than usual at the weekends as the locals wave goodbye to crews leaving and welcome new arrivals.
Sivota is also the finish point for the annual popular South Ionian Regatta, which is held at the end of September. The bay gets chock-a-bloc with boats and the local tavernas get to host the many post-regatta parties.
There is no shortage of waterfront tavernas and cafes to welcome the crowds: they line the quays all around Sivota harbour. Sivota village has three mini-markets located along the west quay all of which are well stocked with provisions for the yacht crews. The village has many traditional stone-built houses and there is a small, secluded stony beach on the opposite side of the bay.
