The earliest recorded inhabitants of the region were the Thesprotians, a Greek tribe of Epirus. During the Middle Ages, Syvota, like the rest of Epirus, was part of the Byzantine Empire and the Despotate of Epirus. Under the Turks, it was called Mourtos. After nearly 500 years of Ottoman rule, Syvota joined Greece in 1913, following the Balkan Wars.
Today, Syvota town is a well-developed resort, owing largely to the numerous pristine beaches with clear waters located on several islets immediately offshore.
Its natural beauties attract both Greek and foreign visitors. There are many tavernas and cafes and shops. Sivota is gifted by the nature and it can be unforgettable to everyone. The area has astonishing and cool beaches and green islets towards the entry of the bay. The marinas of Sivota and Plataria have the potentiality to accommodate small crafts, contributing even more to the area’s development. There are also picturesque villages, such as Faskomilia, Argyrotopos and Polyneri, which are interesting destinations for every visitor.
Discover one of the many beautiful beaches across the 20km shore, from Sivota to the pretty town of Parga, or explore the surrounding areas and experience the wonders of Meteora, the historical town of Ioannina, the mythical river of Acheron or an organized trip to the Islands of Paxos and Corfu.
