The village center is on the calm waterfront area, where you can enjoy the views to the two small islets in the village bay and to the islands of Corfu and Paxos.

There are plenty lovely beaches to choose and a few tiny wooded inshore islands for total peace and seclusion. Sivota beaches can all be reached easily on foot or a by the sea if you hire a small boat.


Some beaches are about 10 to 15 minutes away from the village center. Bela Vraka beach is one of the best to visit just 15 minutes walk. Mega Amos beach is the most popular and a little bit further but offer beach facilities and a nice tavern to taste the Greek food. None of the Sivota beaches will ever disappoint you. All of them offer clean and shallow water and romantic atmosphere is the trade mark.
