Bella Vraka, the exotic beach in Sivota
Bella Vraka is actually the beach that connects Sivota Thesprotia with the island of Mourtemeno. When you see it while you are approaching it you know you are visiting a heavenly place. And as you set foot there, you feel a real blessing. To approach the beach you literally pass through the sea. That means if you want to have equipment with you, you’d better have only what’s absolutely necessary. Think that you have to carry them on your way back.
In the exotic Bella Vraka you will find turquoise clear waters and pink sand that you rarely find not only in Greece but all over the world. Bella Vraka is not considered by chance one of the most beautiful beaches of Sivota. Anyone who is there or in Parga for holidays will always hear the locals urging him to take a walk in Bella Vraka. And the truth is, he will love it.
You can easily reach Bella Vraka by car which you will leave in a parking lot above the beach. Then you will walk down to the beach (and this is the reason why we told you not to carry many things). Once you see it you will be enchanted by the beautiful scenery.
