Four days are not enough to visit all the places and enjoy all the beaches around Sivota. That's why, in the height of summer, we will visit our favourite destination again, but this time for five days.
We will also make an evening visit to the majestic Parga where we will explore the city and have dinner at a tavern. 

 

The Ionian islands of Greece with their turquoise waters are a favourite destination of ours. Crystal clear waters, fun company, new friendships and sea fun await you, we will stop at great wild beaches for diving, snorkeling, relaxing and cliff jumping. 

 

Sandy beaches that you can only reach by water. An island that you can walk to "as if by water" through sand spit, numerous caves and breathtaking sunsets that turn from orange to deep cyclamen hues as you dine. 

 

We'll visit the excellent beaches of Zavia, Mega Ammos, Mikri Ammos, Bella Vraka, and pay special attention to the exotic Pishina Bay, where part of the cult film "The Blue Lagoon" was filmed. We will not miss the Papanikolis cave.

Sivota is a pleasant little town in northwestern Greece, directly across from the island of Corfu. It's only seven hours drive from Sofia and is the most famous resort in the area. As for the crystal blue waters and beaches, they fully justify the reason why thousands of tourists visit this destination every year, both from Greece and abroad, making the resort an ideal destination for kayak tourism. 

 

Yet what to expect from a kayaking adventure?
Sandy beaches that can only be reached by water. An island that you can walk to "as if on water" through a sand spit, numerous caves and breathtaking sunsets that turn from orange to deep cyclamen hues as you dine. The buildings are Venetian in style with a medieval imprint. And the beauty that surrounds them will not disappoint even the most demanding adventurers, for whom we will ensure a carefree and enjoyable holiday. 

 

We will visit the excellent beaches of Zavia, Mega Ammos, Mikri Ammos, Bella Vraka, we will also pay special attention to the exotic Pishina bay, where part of the cult movie "The Blue Lagoon" was filmed. We will not miss the Papanikolis cave.
