Syvota is a resort and marina in Thesprotia region, on the Ionian seaside. It is very popular and visited by a number of tourists because of its picturesque coastline. The bay of Syvota is deeply indented, with many coves and islets just in front of the village. The marina attracts private yachts and boats all year round.
The village is built on two hills with sea view, and the central part is along the port. Syvota provides all facilities for tourists - hotels and guesthouses, restaurants, bars and shops. Most of the restaurants and cafes are scattered around the port and the promenade. Nightlife is also present in the summer. Keep in mind that parking may be difficult in high season as the streets are narrow (and steep on the hills).
Syvota has three small beaches inside the village: Karvouno
, Agios Nikolaos
and Bella Vraka
, as the three of them are among the hills. Bella Vraka is the most famous of them and the most interesting - a small strip of sand connects the land with the nearby islet of Mourtemeno and one can easily walk on it. Other beaches just outside the village are Gallikos Molos (near the port) and Zavia
. Many other small bays can be found within 15 km from Syvota - Mega Ammos
, Mikri Ammos
, Agia Paraskevi
, etc. In the summer, a tourist train transports people from and to the nearest beaches a few times daily. Boat trips are organized from the port to the islands of Paxos
