Sivota enjoys a setting of remarkable natural beauty. All around are hills blanketed by pine, cypress, and olive, the trees in many places reaching the water’s edge.
Most of the people visiting Sivota stay only near beaches. Nevertheless, the rest of the area is also equally interesting.
The twisting coastline is indented with rocky coves, sandy bays, and stretches of almost white coarse sand beach such as Mega Ammos a mile outside the village. Just off-shore are three wooded islets with beaches of their own, great fun to explore by boat, maybe taking a picnic.
The village itself has plenty of greek character, while the harbor and the beaches bustle with life over weekends. The harbor is pretty as a picture, with an array of cafés, restaurants and small shops.
A ten-minute flat walk brings you to the upper part of the village. The nearest beach is just over the headland from the harbor, and many others can be reached in a 10-15 minute walk in either direction.
