Set on a sparkling turquoise bay fringed by sugar-white sand, Sivota is one of the most captivating villages on Lefkada. Popular with sunseekers, the laid-back resort is a great base for exploring Lefkada and enjoying everything the island has to offer.
Bask on the sand, swim in the Ionian Sea and venture into the forested hillsides to discover scenic walking trails. Postcard-perfect Afteli Beach is a short drive from Sivota and will captivate you with its crystal-clear water and a rocky shoreline. Ammoussa Beach is another gorgeous stretch of sand. Rent a sun lounge and beach umbrella for a few hours, then head up to one of the beachfront cafes for a seafood feast.
Sivota is a coveted destination for yachts, and you’ll often see dozens of luxury boats anchored in the bay. Stroll down to the bustling waterfront district to dine at atmospheric restaurants and fish taverns. Wash down your meal with a glass of ouzo, a liquorice-flavoured aperitif loved across Greece.
Sivota is located on the southern tip of Lefkada, a 45-minute drive from Lefkada City. Athens International Airport is a five-hour drive away. Rental cars offer the freedom to relax in Sivota and explore Lefkada at your own pace.
