Sivota (Syvota) actually is an old fishing village, a harbour town where many yachts moor. Before, it was a still pretty quiet place, there was not much tourism, but today it is a very busy touristy resort.
Sivota is surrounded by hills which are covered with pine, cypress and olive trees. The coast is characterized by rocky coves, beautiful bays with fine and elongated sand / pebble beaches. Sivota first was called Volia and Mourtos, since 1950 the name of the village is Sivota. The centre with numerous cafes and restaurants is situated next to the harbour. From the terraces you can watch the lovely sailboats. Off the coast of Sivota are three small islands; Mourtemeno, Agios Nikolaos and Bella Vraka. On the main (pebble) beaches: Zavia, Mega Ammos Zeris are sunbeds and umbrellas available for a fee. Beside the harbour is also a beach. In Sivota are a number of tourist shops.
