Syvota port

A lovely Greek fishing village in Lefkada doesn’t exist without a tiny port, and some private yachts and boats. You can rent a small boat in the port of Syvota also, if you would like to discover the nearby coastline.

The village center, the taverns and markets are primarily located at the main street next to the port, which connects the two sides of the bay. Just sit down in one of the bars and enjoy the relaxing atmospheres, views of the colourful houses, the beautiful flowers and the natural enviroment.

At the entrance of Sivota port you can find a parking lot, where you can stop your car without a fee.

An interesting curiosity is that a few tourists sometimes confuse Sivota (Syvota) of Lefkada with an another settlement as the same name, which is located in the Epirus region.
