The village and harbour of Sivota lie on the East coast of the island of Lefkas in the Ionian Sea of Greece, four miles West of the island of Meganisi. The harbor is not to be confused with the similarly named island of Sivota next to the harbour of Mourtos opposite Corfu. The village is very picturesque, sited at the head of a long inlet that curves round from the open sea and shelters the bay from all but S/SE winds. Tourists flock here, lured by the attractive setting and the numerous good tavernas lining the waterfront. Although Sivota can accommodate possibly up to 100 yachts at any one time, the mooring spaces are often taken up by early afternoon at the busiest times and a yacht arriving late will probably have to anchor off in the bay. Shelter is good in the prevailing N/NW winds, although there are gusts down into the bay, but Sivota is uncomfortable and possibly dangerous in strong S/SE winds.
