Bella Vraka Beach

Reviewed By Eugen B - Constanta, Romania

Bella Vraka beach is considered one of the main attractions of Syvota. A beach on a small island very close to the Mainland that can be reach by foot walking on a shallow water istm.
In reality it is not quite a very easy acces to the beach because in the first place you have to climb and go down by foot the main land hill (there is no parking near the beach). After that you have to cross the water that in September 2017 was almost bellow the belly. And because the beach is not organized you have to carry also your beach equipment with you, including the refrigerated box for drinks.
Any how, mainly for the tourist staying in the uphill hotels Bella Vraka remains their first option beach.
Near Bella Vraka there is another unorganized small beach called Mourtemeno beach.
In the area there are a lot of nautical activities, but organized mainly for the guest of the 4-5* nearby hotels.

Agia Paraskevi Beach

Reviewed By Eugen B - Constanta, Romania

Agia Paraskevi beach can be considered a quiet replica of Krioneri beach from Parga. A long enough sandy beach with a small island in front.
The water is calm, warm and very clear. The area between the beach and the island is not very impressive for snorkeling because is mostly sandy with large portion of deep seagrass.
But if you want to take a longer swim you can have a good underwater landscape on the left side of the island where de water goes deep and very deep, or on the right side towards the small reef emerging from water in the middle between the right shore and the northern end of the small island.
If you want to see the vertical rocky western shore of the Agia Paraskevi Island you have to swim around 400 meters to reach that area.
The right side reef is closer (about 250 meters away) and from there you can go towards the right shoreline and come back to the beach along this side.
On my snorkeling marking scale the score for Agia Paraskevi Beach is 4 from a maximum of 5 points, but you have to swim long distances for reaching the best snorkeling sites.

Mega Ammos Beach

Nice beach, busy 2 tavernas, shop and lots of sunloungers, bean bags to relax on. Bit too busy for us. Would recommend beach shoes as pebbly in sea. Only took us 30 mins to walk to from Villa Marie.

Karvouno Beach

Reviewed By beebee40 - Bolton, United Kingdom

the walk up the very steep hill is exhausting but the beach at Karvouna is so worth the trek. drinks service on the beach by the waiters is friendly and efficient, lovely frappe coffee! the restaurant is pleasant and nicely furnished but lacks the charm of a traditional greek tavern. we would come back again for the beautiful scenery, the amazing view from the sunbeds and the cool, clear Mediterranean sea.

Reviewed By Aris A - Athens, Greece

We review the boat rental from the Stavedo beach on the western side of Syvota town.
We rented the boat for 4 hours and it was quite enough to see all the sea attractions of Syvota! The owner informed us from the previous day about the bad weather conditions in contrast with other boat hiring guys that would give us the boat no matter the wind + for the info! The price was just 30€ + 10€ the extra gas so just 10€ per person was really value for money! The Beaches early in the morning, before 12, were all private including the one between the Islands and the cave! Long story short rent one is a must!

Zeri Beach

Reviewed By Наташа С

Zeri beach offers clean water and pleasant аtmosphere. We were here twice. There is a bar called Stavedo which offers an umbrella, two seats and 1l of water for 5 euros. We also ordered some food (french fries, sandwiches and burgers). All things were delicious, especially the burgers. I honestly recommend it.

Pisina Beach

Reviewed By GNS_on_tour - Novi Sad, Serbia

Maybe I just expected too much, this is basically one nice beach with crystal blue water, and that is all. It could be approched only with boats that you can rent in Syvota (drop in/drop out taxi boats). Early in the morning shadow from the cliff covers whole beach, but after 11am it could be very hot because there is no natural shelter (so you need to bring your own sun umbrella). Water was not clean when we were there but I suppose it depeneds from the sea current and waves. All in all, that was nice excursion but like I mentioned nothing special - we stayed there just 1 hour waited to catch next boat.
